Signing off for a while.......

Well folks, the inevitable finally happened!  I've totally run out of steam.  I don't mean mojo, or the desire to craft, but the energy to fit it into my life just at the moment.

I knew I was in for a busy period but thought I'd manage a bit longer but as well as the full time care of my adorable (...but very energetic..!) little Granddaughter, Ada, my new(-ish..) canine companion Charlie and the prospect of Christmas on the near horizon and NOTHING at all done towards it I also have my daughter Bev's impending new motherhood in the New Year as well as the usual day to day commitments. Add, then, to this scenario, a litter of six puppies (...Izzy's the mum and Charlie the dad...) which I suddenly had to take respopnsibility for ten days ago (...little poo-machines they are...!) one of which I am keeping (!) and you start to get the picture.....!

This is actually history repeating itself as thirty-four years ago when my eldest son Matt was about 18 months old and I was expecting my second som Michael, my Afghan Hound bitch Kerry had her litter. My Hubby, Nic, was away at sea then, so I was completely alone on this journey, morning-sickness included, and then my queen cat, Blackie, decided to join in and deliver six kittens!

I managed fine then, but I was only 26 years old and relatively fit!  I am now quite a bit older and not at all fit! LOL!

So I'm not saying goodbye, just see ya later - probably closer to Christmas.
Thank you for all your support and I look forward to getting back into the saddle when I get a minute to myself again!
