Weekends

 The boys worked on the Ford - the water hose shot itself the day of James getting his licence - thankfully it happened straight after his test when he got home aye. The boys brought all the parts during the week and got it back on the road on Sunday. James is going to be one handy car fixer like his dad.


We said farewell to Freya. I really hope this is the very last time I have to rehome a pet in my lifetime. So much so that I have stated I will never ever get another animal. - It just hurts to much to do this.
I had lots of people wanting Freya but they were all grilled on the phone and I said no to 10 people... The lady that got Freya is a widow, lost her last burmese 2 years ago and just had a little peek on Trade Me and fell in love with Freya. So Freya went to a a lovely lady who lives on her own, no other cats, dogs or children. They are going to be wonderful company for each other and the best bed buddies. Plus Freya is going to come back to us for holidays.
I was a bit low for most of the Sunday afternoon and I still don't feel like a joy germ- but I know it was for the best and totally amazing to see Cinders much more settled with Freya gone. Freya tormented poor old Cinders.
I packed in her bag her favourite toy, a blanket she has been sitting on so she has our smells, mince and cat food she likes, some Bach flower remedy - Walnut to help adjust to change and rescue remedy which has Star of Bethlehem to help with shock
.I wonder how her first night went?

Linking up to weekends at Pumpkin Sunrise.

  1. I think it would be sad to let a pet relocate, but sometimes that is just what needs to happen, sounds like you found a lovely new forever home where there is an abundance of love and attention.

  6. It had to be that way with Freya but it sounds like she'll have a lovely home with a wonderful lady. James doesn't resemble Mr Dean much in that photo!

    1. Yes I was very fussy of who could have Freya - was worth waiting for the right owner. LOL re Mr Dean you have NO idea the laughter you have caused in this family.
