A different tale!

I would like to just say a few words about a few special people who are reading this page tonight. I know it not a tale, well not a sort of story tale, but it’s a tale nevertheless. It’s a tale about the people in my life who mean so much to me.

     My kind and unassuming husband and I are about to leave our home for waifs and strays, to visit some friends on a beautiful Greek Island. In fact, we leave in just one hour. It is very short notice and wouldn’t be possible without the help of our very dear family and friends.

     As we move out, they move in but it’s taking us the past few hours to ‘show them the ropes.’ You see, one of our hens it poorly (her name is Thunder) and we had to make an urgent trip to the vets. So not only do our dear friends and family have the task of sorting feeding and watering of our animals, but they also had to have a quick lesson in how to administer antibiotics to a hen. But I have to say, they passed with flying colours.

     Then there’s the allotment, growing faster each day. And the greenhouses filled with tomato plants and all sorts of things edible.  I’m amazed that these wonderful people offer to stay at our home for waifs and strays.

     So we shall leave now, knowing our animals are safe in your hands. And although there is much work to be done, I am sure you will gain something by being here. I cannot thank you enough!

      I shall write each day from our island in the sun with tales of a similar kind.

      Goodnight my friends and family, sleep tight and watch out for slip the slug and Jako and Jake the field mice. Oh, and don’t worry about the strange noise in Mochas old room, it’s just a friendly ghost....I think!
