A best friend

As some of you may already know, life has been pretty sad of late. In late January, I had to say goodbye to a family member, and a best friend: our 15 and a half year old dachshund, Boz. His loss is still incredibly hard to bear, and while I have many photos and memories to look back on, it's still too early to sit down and feel happy looking at them. Hopefully I can share a few more with you as the months pass. I took this shot of us on his last day with us - we spent a lovely afternoon in the summer sun on our back verandah.

Perhaps this goes some way to explaining why I've lost a bit of zest for posting. I hope to catch up more with all of you in the coming weeks.

      I'm so very sorry. I know how painful this can be. Do talk about it as much as possible to absorb the grief.
