Tilly May and her letter to Santa.

This is Tilly May our granddaughter with her quilt that has driven me mad at times over the last year. A whole year !!!!
It's not as if I'm a great quilter I'm not. 
I'm pleased she liked it. As for her hair, well, she had just got up and was supposed to be getting ready for school.

This is Tilly May's letter to Santa.

Dear Santa
Have your reindeer been good this year? I hope they've been good.
Please can i have a new scooter and please may you make my nan (Great Grandmother) and my mum get better thank you. 
Last year and this year I hope everyone has been good this year.
I hope I'm on the good year (on the good list).
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Love from Tilly.

How can Santa ignore that.

See you all soon :-) XXX

The Soggibottom Fox

This little guy isn't the only Soggibottom fox around the cottage.

The other one spends half her life covered in sand,

 on the beach with her head down a sand hole. 

At least this little fox will keep his whiskers sand free.

See you all soon guys :-) X X X

Palm oil alert on South West England Beaches

A deadly menace washed up by the savage storms we've had recently is poisoning dogs at a rate of one a day.
Several animals have died after licking or nibbling on boulder-sized chunks of palm oil which have been found littering beaches in Devon and Cornwall.

Hundreds more have been left writhing in agony with their owners facing huge vets bills for emergency treatment.
The strange blobs emit a stench of diesel and were thought to be firelighters. but the source of the pollution has yet to be found. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency identified it as solidified palm oil, a substance used in food, soaps, shampoos and biofuels.

It is harmless to humans but can kill dogs unless they get swift treatment which involves being fed charcoal to soak up the oil and induce vomiting.
The first reported casualty came when a three-year-old miniature schnauzer was killed after ingesting a single, tiny lump.

Freya for the time being is limiting her walks to the lake and woods.

She doesn't seem to mind missing her jaunts to the beach, there's always the added bonus of duck and swan watching beside the lake.

Squirrel and bird watching.

Meeting and greeting other walkers, we even met Rudolph.

Some walkers have such amazing smiles.

Freya as usual can be found over at the CAT FLAP CAVALIER.

Keep those paws safe guys.
