Definitely not Aviemore...

Er, but Gail, I thought you said we were going to Inshriach House, near Aviemore in the Cairngorm Mountains this weekend?

I do believe you have taken a wrong turn. This is most definitely not the Cairngorm Mountains.

I see. There's been a change of plan?

I must say I did not think it should take eight hours to drive a distance of less than a hundred miles...

Oh dear, you say Human Granny is in hospital again and is very seriously ill, so we have come down to Nottingham?

Well Gail, I guess we're now in the right place then.

And at least I won't have to deal with hyperactive border collie Hemp!

Gail, would you feel better if I gave your face fond lick?

PS from Gail: Difficult times. The blog may be quiet for a bit.


  1. we send potp and hugs and lots of positive tjhoughts to your human granny...

  2. hugs kisses and prayers to Human granny....... Take care of both Gail and Human Granny , dear Bertie....... Thinking of you all

  3. We are so very sorry to hear that Human Granny is ill. We wish her a swift return to good health.
    You will all be in our thoughts, so take care.

    Lots of hugs and love,
    Inca, and her Human. xx

  4. We are sorry to hear about Human Granny, and holding paws crossed in prayer to hear good news. We do understand what you are going through, and though we know how trite it sounds to say that we are praying for all of you, we are sending it anyway. We spent a lot of time in airports and rental cars, with lots of ups and downs, and must say that the thing that made Aunt Marie happiest was to see Gus and Teka come through the door. Blogging drops by the wayside, as does proper eating and exercise. We will be here when you are ready to talk, vent, or find someone to cry with you.
