Well it has been about 3 months since the removal men came , packed up our belongings and moved us down to Doncaster. Yet it seems like much much longer, we have developed a routine, we are getting used to the accents, and Megan’s has changed sooo much , she sounds like she was born here, it is sooo funny at times, I hear the odd change in the boys and I don’t think my accent has changed at all, I wonder if I will say the same in 5 years time..watch this space.
Since then , the children have settled at their Schools, they are still in 3 different schools, we are managing the drop off and pick up between us, with Dylan helping out when needed. They have made friends, and are enjoying living here, it is HOME.
On a sad note our cat marmalade has gone missing, he just went out one Sunday about 6 weeks ago and has not returned 😦
Every time I go into the Larder in the kitchen I see His bowl, food, cat litter , poor Marmalade , I miss him so much.
We have had our first fire work display here and a very good one it was too, Karen , Ian , Rachael and Jack came to stay and I tweeted to see if anyone knew of a good display in our area and a guy came back and said yes at Spotborough , which is very close to us.
It was a brilliant firework display, when we got there we bought food, and went to see the fire being lit, it was a fantastic atmosphere and the fireworks were brilliant, well worth it. Well worth being on twitter 😉
Ian is well and truly into his job and loving it, he has something to do every day of the week , from Communions to Pastoral visits , to organising Baptisms to funerals, and he has also had some very other interesting things to do too.
But something was missing …every time I opened the cupboard in the kitchen I knew we needed another pet, a cat. So i went on line and found the addresses of a few rescue centres, and was eventually given the name and number of a very lovely lady called Sheila who runs her own Rescue centre.
2 weeks ago we visited her and we were chosen by a cat called Tabitha, out of the cats in the room with us she was the only one who came and sat on both of our laps, Ian and I looked at her , looked at each other and smiled…she was coming home with us.
She is beautiful , she came to us on the Saturday, but the poor thing developed cat flu, 1 week and 3 trips to the vets later , loaded with a syringe we continued the care at home , I managed to get water into her with the syringe and a couple of days later she started to eat, now she is showing her true colours and is delightful, even if she likes to have her daft half hour at 3 am , and lies on your pillow next to you, and loves cuddles and lots and lots of attention.
There is someone who will giver her lots of attention and that is Megan…..probably too much attention
