Thank you to everyone who sent me PM's asking how my family and I was getting on. It's been really strange not having a fur-baby around the house. We made a trip down to Devon recently, where we spent most of our holidays growing up, to scatter both Josie and Penny's ashes together which gave us a little bit of closure. We still have flashes of thinking they're just around the corner.

But on to happier news, Penny's half-sister had a healthy litter of 5, and one of those babies will be coming home with us. We're debating between Meg and Hazel for names at the moment but Hazel stands out for being the name of the main character from my favourite book 'The Fault in our Stars', Hazel Grace Lancaster.

'I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly, and then all at once.'

Wow, Tina, that puppynapping bag must be dusty. You haven't made that threat in a long while. :lol3 Good to see you are still in the business.

Seriously! My old bag was only for domestic flights, so I need a new one to travel for this baby.
