Oh Dean, that's good. never easy, but sounds as if you all 'did him proud'.

Bjay- you never know... Seriously me & OH are planning to do more 'sightseeing' visits down Worcs/Gloucs/Shropshire areas in the future. Daft now no actual connections, just memories. Over the last yrs we've always stayed in NWorcs/Black country borders, with Dad. Apart from trips down to Oxford to OH's Aunt/uni drop offs/pick ups we rarely explored much further. We're NT members, so really must use it more down there.

Tree now 'apart' so need to flatten into the box & tape box up. J.

Sorry Dean forgot to say pleased it went OK yesterday, still a difficult time though

03/01/2013 at 19:43

Evenin' all. Dun rescuin'  for today, 4 calls in 4 hours to take dogs in

What a lot has passed since I clocked in at coffee break!

Dean, glad the send-off went well.



03/01/2013 at 19:44

How many dogs do you re-home Flo. Are theyhard to place?

03/01/2013 at 19:45

Glyn, it was ordered by myself, for myself back in October, finally came today. It wasn't intended as a family present, but it seems madam thinks otherwise. She'll soon get bored as the novelty wears off.

03/01/2013 at 19:54

Flo -is that usual at this time of year?

Becks-you will not say that when at 16 she is a computer whizz-kid and showing you how to do stuff

03/01/2013 at 19:57

Becks CITV this w/end doing old childrens' programs- some may interest Jess. Then she'll hopefully give you a chance?

Need to go down to shed tomorrow to get the big roll of strong twine to tie up tree box. Box was actually a Dyson box, but does just as well. We've also nearly run out of parcel tape, as well as ordinary string- so on shopping list.

Forecast looks much better, well couldnt be worse, for us over next few days. So I shall get into garden to actually do something!

The ironing can wait..... shattered now. Keep forgetting am supposed to take things easy occasionally. Then the tiredness suddenly arrives & nothing gets done at all.

Signing off now to flop, J.


03/01/2013 at 19:59

Will look out for that jo! night.

03/01/2013 at 20:09

Bjay, we're only a little rescue and I think we rehome between 4 and 8 a month plus some go straight to known volunteers - like our Maisie-moo who we pounced on the day she was brought in!

Geoff, as far as I know we don't have a worse problem at this time of year than at any other though sometimes the Christmas hol. brings problems to a head in families and the dog may be a loser in that situation. It's a bit too early for Christmas puppies to be discarded yet.

Night Joanna,Josephine John-boy

There is a programme on ITV at 9 about people moving from England to the Sun-does not sound encouraging

Jo - it's OK to have a rest you know .

I'm jealous that someone else had posted a photo of their dongle

03/01/2013 at 20:37

I posted a picture of mine but it was so small you couldn't see it

03/01/2013 at 20:39

I was joking!! Didn't even know it was on.

03/01/2013 at 20:44

Geoff - perhaps Gary can enhance it with "photoshop"
