The party's over. Post 1001

It's like the morning after the night before, all that partying has completely worn me out, ouch my head is throbbing :o) So here we are, a brand new start, let's raise a glass to the next 1000 posts.

Life goes on. This morning I fed all the cats. The new ones are doing well, their poo is looking a lot better, more normal, now they are on proper cat food and getting three meals a day. I have given them the names Linzi for the white girl, and Steve for the black boy. We will put them on our catchat page soon, they will be closely monitored for a couple of weeks to make sure they are fit and healthy.

Janet sent me this pic of Mr Beasley, remember him, the big fluffy boy with a beautiful tail, that wouldn't stay at his new home. The owner agreed to rehoming him and he has been happily living with Janet and Paul. The kitten was found recently in someone's garden and Janet has been hand rearing him. It looks like the two of them are getting on really well, and I have a feeling that Paul has fallen for the little fella. I don't think he will be going anywhere else.

I've been out in the lovely sunshine this morning walking two black labradors. We are lucky to have blue skies and virtually no wind. This afternoon I'm finishing off a couple of key rings which I am making, to give as gifts for my friends daughter and new son in law, to take back to Canada with them. They are having a party tonight in the local club, I am looking forward to that, should be fun.

I bet you are waiting to see who has won the last raffle ticket, and also one of my lovely bags. This is how I have been drawing the tickets. Every day I have listed all the names in my notebook, then I cut up a sheet of paper into squares, and added the names to the home made tickets. Give them a good shake, open the lid and dip in.

Here is a list of Bransby raffle ticket numbers and winners. I will check to see if anyone has won when the raffle is drawn on December 19th. If you want to check the numbers yourself the web site is
