Still here

I can't believe I've been absent from blogging for over a month, or I can believe it. The jury's out on that one. My blogging came to a halt when our much loved Ellie died (pictured above) at the age of 12. I think my blogging stopped because I felt I needed to mention it, but it hurt too much to even begin to write a post about it. My wounds are healing but it still makes me so sad when I think of her. Ellie was the one we thought we would have for many more years. She was a wonderful cat and never any trouble. She would now and again give you an impromptu face wash when you picked her up. She would chase sticks, leaves etc, round and round in the garden as you wiggled them, until she made herself giddy. She lays next to Lily in the garden and shares Lily's garden light. I'm sure Lily wouldn't mind one bit.

Long absent hugs, Sarah x

My sister recently lost her cat of 18 and was also heartbroken. But twelve years old isn't much of an age and I feel for you.
