Yesterday was the Man Of The House's birthday. It was one that ended in a big round number. That's all I've been told to say on the subject.
Anyway, having shared that with you I thought I'd share with you some of the lovely pictures he's been taking on our walks recently. The Lady Of The House bought him a camera for Christmas which means he can take pictures that allow him to zoom in really close.
Here's one of me - well, a bit of me.
Do you want to gaze into my eye a little closer?
The MOTH loves the little bees and bugs he sees (maybe it's because of his name?)
I love this picture of a Poppy's centre.
I know people think Dandelions are weeds - but they are really just plants that grow where some people sometimes don't want them. I think they are beautiful and I love all the smells in the hedgerows where they grow.
I hope you liked the MOTH's pictures.
Now a bit of sad news. Our lovely friend Sonja - who knitted my beautiful patchwork blanket for me - has today said a last goodbye to her beautiful, very regal and graceful cat Chloe (known to all as Dame Chloe) who was close to her 20th birthday.
Dame Chloe had been seriously ill for a while but the vet was keeping an eye on her and said she wasn't suffering and she was eating and enjoying her time with Sonja in her quiet way. But in recent days she took a turn for the worse and Sonja knew regretfully that it was time to take that hardest of all decisions.
We know Sonja's heart is breaking tonight but we know she's done the right thing by Chloe as she always did. We send them both all our love and we know you will too.
