3rd July 2007 ~ 24th April 2011
On Easter Sunday, after a brief but very aggressive battle with kidney failure and despite the best efforts of her wonderful vet, we had to say goodbye to our darling Gabbi. She was our youngest at only three years old. Our hearts are broken.
Her ashes will be scattered at Duffus Castle, her favourite place and our daily walk.
I had always hoped to come back to blogging someday, but my heart just isn't in it, especially now....it wouldn't feel right to continue without Gabbi, so sadly this will be our last post, though the blog will remain, I could never delete it. Thankfully, we can keep up with many of our blogging buddies on the dreaded......Facebook!
"Although my tail, it's last has waved,
From pain and suffering i've been saved."
Goodnight sweetheart....until we meet again xx
We'd just like to say also....thanks so much to all who followed our antics over the past few years....we have had SO much fun with this blog, as well as following everyone else's......all the adventures, the memes, the romances, the globetrotting, the contests, the pay it forwards etc......we have a collection of things that we'll always treasure.....we've made some life-long friends (even got to meet some!) and have lots of very precious memories xx

Our Dad came with us and threw sticks.
It was even nice enough to go into the water!
On the way home we stopped off at Burghead, Mum wanted some photos of the harbour, but look what was following the little boats..........a large pod of dolphins. These were the few pics Mum got of them, she had the camera set to rapid burst but you still need to get the timing right.....we have around 400 or so photos of just sea! How cool to see these though :o)
Then we were treated to a gorgeous light show. These are all taken from our back garden and straight from the camera, no editing (apart from cropping), the colours were amazing!
As we said........today was perfect.
Here are some random photos......our new local walk, the liney, just out the back of our house.
In the garden.
Some birds, one dead...oops!
Some passing boats...and rigs.
These are the colourful beach huts at Hopeman.

Hello furries and peeps! We've been away from Blogland for so long, but after visiting only a few blogs today we realise that there's alot of heartache going on and it's mostly been caused by ticks.
There's Digby who has had a very bad reaction to a tick bite........and Petey's HHI friend Lulubelle who has Rocky Mountain Tick Fever. Paws crossed they both make a full recovery, and soon.
Our Mum has a friend who has suspected Lyme disease and she's really suffering with it. This awful disease is caused by being bitten by an infected tick. It is easily treated in it's early stages with antibiotics but in later stages can attack the nervous system and cause all sorts of terrible symptoms.....and all due to a long-forgotten bite from a tiny bloodsucking critter!
Lecture over.....we're off to do more visiting....it's great to have decent service at last!

Well, we know it looks like our Mum has abandoned her blog and everyone else's in favour of Facebook....and to a certain extent, she has....but when your internet connection is like this most of the time........
....it's the only convenient way to get our photos online and keep in touch with some of our friends! Since moving house, we are around 9 miles from the nearest library.........we thought it would be better during and just after the move to carry on using the mobile broadband....however, just recently we've had a few comments on FB which made us realise how long it's been since we had proper service, one that lets us visit all our bloggie friends.
So, we thought we'd try and visit some of them, starting with Rosie's long neglected hubby Petey , here's how it went....
When that didn't work, we thought we'd try and do a blog post....
The upside of this is that it gave our Mum a much needed kick up the bum to get a real internet service ordered and throw the stupid dongle into the harbour, so as of 10th May (yes, everything takes an age here!) we will be back online....but this time we're not making any promises, we'll just wait and see how it goes.......one thing's for certain though......there'll be photos galore.........and hopefully no more moaning about crappy internet!

It's my dear hubby's birthday! I'm feeling very guilty for neglecting him over the past few months so I baked him a big tennis ball cake and plonked my sorry self on top.

At last..........we have found our way back to our blog......
Tuesday, 29 December 2009
Anyway, nuff moaning........today we have a few reasons to blog......firstly, wanna see some snow? (think you can enlarge them)
These two pictures of Ben Wyvis were both taken on Christmas day. The above one was taken from our kitchen window in the morning....the big chimney is the Benromach distillery....and the one below was taken from our Nanny's back garden in the afternoon....you can just see the rigs at the mouth of the Cromarty Firth.
We've had alot of snow in the past 24hrs, on the news last night it said that skiers in the Cairngorms are enjoying the best season since the 1960's! (We saw 5 RAF mountain rescue units heading out there last night, hope everyone's staying safe!) The photo above was taken on the way home from picking big sis up from work....this is, believe it or not, the main road between Aberdeen and Inverness and it's even worse today, Mum couldn't even take the girl to work, had to ask a friend with a 4x4!
Special hugs to Petey and his Mom today xx
