It has been a busy, sunny and productive week. I won't list all that I've dealt with as it would be long and boring. With the money saved from not buying gear I've caught up with my bills and set up direct debits so I don't have to worry about getting behind again. That might sound pretty normal to most "grown-ups". It's a first for me. Ever. Maybe I really am growing up . . .?
Hamper G and I have had two three hour lunch time picnics in the park this week . . . Again, normal to most folk, a first for me. Way too many "small but significant" good things have happened to write about just now. I feel blessed and thankful.
I've cleaned all the hamsters out and there are only two new pups . . . so maybe I can make room for them ;-) eh? what's another two?

Stropster (16) decided to give it another go with me. He was shocked at my strength and began to get
I'm still working on Higgins (part 3), raking through the memories . . . There aren't enough hours in the day as it is and tomorrow we lose one! Gone. Fast forward and there it was . . . gone. That always seems weird to me, like, are we allowed to do this? (I mean turn the clocks forward an hour) I seem to have so much to do these days, I'm sure I could spend fourteen hours a day solid "doing stuff" and not run out.
This is getting long for a quickie
