I have been inspired to post again by Boo's fabulous photos and daring feats in France.
Here are some pictures of our Halloween pumpkin carving party - complete with spotty George who has Chicken pox. Most of the invited kids (2 out 0f 3) were scared off by the chicken pox - so it was a relatively small party, but with a lot of pumpkins.
I baked pumpkin pie and pumpkin apple bread - with pretty good success (the bread more than the pie) - but the mulled wine went over really well! Next stop - Barcelona - when finally many of you will get to meet our kids. Can't wait - see you there (probably with a spotty Oscar....).

Hello all,

I think we are on the blog now, but as we don't have a computer up and running yet, we cannot send any pictures. May post some from our cruising days before we start posting from Spain. See some of you soon, and looking forward to it. Lots of spare floor space......

Poor old Saffy

So Carl took Saffy for a walk yesterday evening and in her usual style she bombed off across the field in search of squirrels and other interesting things. To Carl's alarm she didn't come when she was called. Upon further investigation he found that she'd managed to rip her ear on some barbed wire - blood spurting out in all directions.

She was duly rushed off to the vets and this, poor thing, is the hilarious but heart breaking result :(

She's had to have her ear glued and bandaged down. The minute we take that cone thingy off her head she's scratching like mad so she has to keep it on. Unfortunately she keeps bumping into everything making Carl and I fall about laughing and pointing at her whilst she wears a very wounded expression. Poor sod.

Hope all of you are keeping well. Love Kate xxxx
