A new year has arrived. I won’t say Happy New Year as I’m not feeling so happy today – it’s my first year of my life without my Mum in it. But I know as time progresses it will bring some happiness to all of us who are missing her so much, especially my Dad, and we can look back at the wonderful times Mum shared with us. We’ve got some nice things to look forward to – a couple of holidays, including a European cruise later in the year. We trust that we can remain healthy and we have each other to help us through the inevitable sad times. We look forward to spending time with our beautiful fur kids, and of course with our friends.
This year I want to create more time to help animals in need and to explore some writing skills, perhaps expanding beyond my comfortable world of animals. I’m considering a love story and I already have some ideas of an amazing couple to base it on..
Our New Year’s Eve was spent quietly at home, and today, after dog walks and bike rides, we relaxed in the shade of our garden, catching up on the most recent theory of dog evolution and behaviour… Rupie, April and Billie didn’t seem at all interested to learn of their heritage – snoozing was the only thing on their mind!
Wishing everyone a healthy and fulfilling 2013 and I look forward to continuing to gain inspiration from your blogs and adventures from home and around the world.
