Much has happened since I last posted. Milo was diagnosed with breast cancer at the beginning of the year and had to undergo a mastectomy. He appeared to recover very well, but his little body must have tried so hard to fight the cancer that he was too weak to fight the intestinal stones he developed, and my precious, beautiful baby died in my arms on 7th July. I still miss him terribly, we were together a long time and had a very close, trusting relationship.
Archie quickly became lonely and depressed and took to sleeping under my bed for the company, so I had no choice but to find him a companion quickly, for his sake. And so Toby came to live with us at the beginning of August. Cheeky, lively, bold and so black you often can’t tell which end you’re looking at, he nibbles my toes and is doing a wonderful job of keeping Archie company. Now I have two of them sleeping under my bed… No doubt I will post some pictures of them both at some point.
As for me, I’m enjoying my alone time more than ever. I’m loving every moment spent at my computer making websites, even when I’m pulling my hair out in frustration! It’s what I enjoy doing and whatever issues present themselves I just know that I will overcome them in the end, through wine and head-thumping, because I want to. It’s a good feeling.
And now, Christmas is nearly upon us again, so I’ve gone to town on tacky and installed not just the Santa countdown, but snow and a string of Christmas lights. Let’s get Christmassy!
So that brings us a little more up to date, I’ll try and think of something more creative for my next post.
Happy December, everybody
