Moments taken to remember our family cat, Poppy, who passed away this week. Tears shed reading a very timely and poignant article about such matters in the latest WI magazine*. For some, a cat is just a cat, a dog is just a dog. For those who have spent time, long or short, with something that you have to care for and love, the void that is left can be unbearable. I think it is right to allow yourself time to grieve. To adjust to a period without that little presence, however furry.
To quote Jenny Rogers - "Grief is the price we pay for love and we have to go through it, not under or around it."
Have a lovely weekend folks. The forecast is looking good - Glastonbury may indeed be mud free. Not too sure about tomorrow, but we will be taking an early morning bike ride on Sunday before the sports extravaganza begins and Mr M's brain explodes from sport commentary and multi media overload.
* I know. WI eh? I kept that quiet didn't I!
