Today we had to let Doris go. Over 17 years of age she began to retain fluid. The vet diagnosed a serious heart-condition. Of course we knew we had this coming. This afternoon she will be buried alongside Oes and Daisy.

For weeks it had been planned. Little was left to coincidence. But yesterday it was the BIG day! Exactly 10 years since they have been going steady, Erik and Inge got married. It was a small, intimate wedding. My son Thomas and his wife Seona had come over from Australia, so this made the party […]
