Re: The Darling Buds of May

I loved the original series and I usually enjoy r...

Re: Sleep well my baby

A friend of mine has sent me the following poem that he has found on another site and it has set me off again. When Tomorrow Starts Without Me When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see; The sun will rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry...

Sleep well my baby

I had to let Jess my springer go on Monday, in less than a week she had gone from an old dog still plodding around to a lady who did not want to get out of her bed. Apart from her slowing down she seemed fine but when I took her for her booster and check up our vet found a lump in her throat area an...

Re: Goodnight Mr. Tom

This is one of those programes that you can watch over and over again and never get bored of it.

My three girls need a new home

I’m afraid that due to the change in mine and my family’s circumstances. (Longer work hours, new babies and a possible house move) I have to re-home my 3 girls as I cannot continue to give them the time and attention they need and deserve. I have had these 3 since Feb 2009 (one was oven ready when I...
