Out Of Hibernation



Happy New Year to you all!

We've had quite a difficult time with Bebe...
She is not the same person who moved in with us just over a year ago & since starting with a chest infection just before Christmas - she has lost her appetite & a stone in weight! Penicillin has perked her up a little, but we've had lots of sleepless nights which are just exhausting for all of us!

Saying this, it hasn't stopped us from having some lovely times with family & friends over the holiday period...

While staying in Bishop's Castle we had a meet up with friends, Shelley & Kelli in Wales... 
Sime was in Shelley's band - The Hidden Persuaders back in the early 90s & after losing touch, they found each other on facebook a couple of years ago. This time we got to meet her fabulous Wife too & enjoyed a lovely afternoon chat, coffee & cake!

A flying visit to Stoke & a lovely evening spent with Gerry & Brenda (AKA Nana Stip-Pep).
Brenda is recovering from an accident in the summer, but is determined & we were so happy to finally have an opportunity to see them.

Then it was down to Bristol for a visit with a very hungover Sal & Ryan!
We actually went into Bath for the last day of their German Market & a bite to eat.

Our final destination was a visit to Glastonbury to see our friends Kath & Jim. 
We spent a wonderful time - catching up & feasting...  
With great reluctance, we had to peel ourselves away to return home!

After a few days of trying to juggle work & caring for a very agitated Bebe - it was decided that she should go into respite for the weekend... 
Which meant we got to enjoy a chilled out Solstice get-together with the rest of the kidlets... 
Though we all missed Sal & Ryan, but will be having our proper get-together for Hugo's Birthday & our usual late Secret Santa exchange!

Bebe returned home for Christmas, but really wasn't well.

Rose & Asa were able to return too, so we enjoyed some great games of Trivial Pursuit & Articulate, as well as feasting (of course)...

And they made a splendid job of decorating our tree, which this year is just a branch we found on the roadside near home & as always - will stay up until Hugo's Birthday later this month.

Bye for now & thank you to everyone who has contacted us (& apologies for not getting back).
We have struggled to find time for everything, hopefully Bebe's improved health will make a difference & we do hope to get back to normal soon. 

Love Kay & Sime
xx
