And the fun part - it is about 2 quid more expensive to send it to Bristol than it is to ROI. :doh:

As said our mail is crap at the moment. I've packages with collectable books taking an average of two weeks from the UK and its starting to get on my wick. Not sure which side of the water the issue is on.

Chilli, hope Karen gets her own car back soon and you can put this behind you.

Bouncy, losing something in the mail is upsetting, sorry!

I feel exhausted. Stayed up waaayy past my bedtime. Both girls were gone for sleepovers, so we went out to dinner and went to a movie. Cat howled all night and the only reason she's still in the house this morning is that I was too tired to get up and toss her out the door last night. Now I'm remembering why I originally wanted family to come out this afternoon instead of this morning. Great date night though!

And chris, never doubt that you did the right thing for Troy. You absolutely did. You got to say goodbye to him before he got too bad to realise it.

Oh Chris. I'm so sorry to hear about Troy. I was only wondering the other day how he was.

Hugs to you both.

Totally agree. Troy was blessed to have you and Rosanna as his guardians. Image

Feel for you both Chris - but you definitely did the right thing to stop Troy suffering any more Image
