I'm sorry that I haven't been here lately. We've had some bad news about the health of two close relatives and have been concentrating on that for now. Hope to be back blogging again in the New Year.
Also (and I know not remotely in the same league) a fox stole our little Hilda Hen and thereby removed a simple source of joy from our lives. Poor little Hilda who did no-one any harm and laid us lovely wee brown eggs nearly every day.
But I wish you all a very joyful Christmas and hope that 2011 is a happy and peaceful year for you. Thank you all for your friendship, your comments and kindness.
