We also lost our sweet old friend Nala, at 15 she was ready to head over the rainbow bridge, and we are all a little lost without her. Nala was around long before any of my children, my loyal friend and first class food vaccuum, AKA pig dog - I have no idea how I would have weaned 4 kids AND kept my sanity without her, Pip is too much of a fussy eater to take her place, and it is somewhat disconcerting to find myself sweeping up rice and various other spilled foods from under our dining table at meal times. Oh Nala, you will be missed, and not just for your expert food clearing abilities.
On that note, I am taking a wee blog break, just for a short while. I am still around and sneak peaking at your lovely blogs, and will comments when I can of course.
Take care sweet friends and see you again very soon :)
