I've been back from England since Tuesday evening but have been horrendously busy sorting, cleaning and unpacking. I'll get to my FQR post tomorrow or Monday.
It was a tough few days before Fat Quarterly Retreat. We arrived in Cardiff on Sunday afternoon and visited the Docks, where there was an international food festival,
very hot and humid, well into the 30's and then the plan was to visit family on Monday and come home Tuesday. Sunday night the boy is sick with a tummy bug and urine infection, so quick family visit and back home on Monday.
During the Monday my old lab was very ill back home, we were waiting for phonecalls from DH with news from the vet, I left France and he was fine, suffering from the heat slightly but unfortunately after two days of blood clots in his brain, perhaps a tumour and massive epileptic fits, the vet, dh and I realised it was time to say goodbye. A real shock for all the family and probably even more so because we weren't together.
It was some small comfort that we were due to go and collect the kitten, took our minds off our loss. We came home with two...not a cheap experience as it's 80e per adoption (per kitten) but they have been chipped and have had their jabs and to be honest I'm not hard enough to split up a brother and sister...we're looking for names at the moment they are called Arwen & Frodo but dh isn't keen on Arwen.
As you can see, they've been with us 3 hours and already we've had quilt frame love :)
