Mini Holiday Photos....at last

Here are some photos from my little holiday at Merle's place...


...this is me getting some lovely cat cuddles......

...and doggy 'hellos' from the handsome Angus....

....even the pigeon let me pat him..... the Beer Fairy is holding him.....

....this is one of Merle's cats asleep in the sun.....

....and another one pretending to be a tiger in the jungle........you have to look closely to find her...






I'll post again very soon....
I'm so pleased my computer seems to be publishing again...i have no idea what the problem was...

Have a good day...Hugs and Blessings

  1. Hello dear Barb...So glad you had a holiday with Merle. How wonderful. You definitely deserved it.

    Barb, you have a LOT on your plate right now. It's okay to feel bummed and sad. Anyone would.

    Caretaking is difficult and wears on the nerves at times. I know because I have been there.

    You need to take breaks. You honestly do. So I'm glad you did!

    Take care. I hope your week is good. Hugs. Susan

  2. Thank you so much for your kind and understanding words, Susan.......

    I worry that I don't spend enough one on one time with my Mum because I see her sitting just looking at nothing ..but she tells me she's fine......I feel I don't stimulate her enough and I don't want her to fade away mentally.......
    I'm told by my family that I'm not to feel guilty because no one could do this... I have to relax and leave Mum some alone time.....

    Thanks again Susan.....
    Hugs and Blessings...

  3. It's hard not to worry when someone just sits, but perhaps she is remembering and happy in the memories.
    I love your photos, especially the kitty being a tiger in the jungle and Angus's happy face.

  4. It is so good of you to look after your mom. Try not to be too hard on yourself. Caretaking is a very demanding job and you need to look after yourself. Hugs, xx

  5. They are great pics Barb!
    Glad to hear you had a nice relaxing break with Merle.
    Looking at Kidney's photo I can hear Dad's voice in the background saying, "Take a leaf out of the cat's book and go and lay down in the sun." hehe!
    Alone time is something we ALL need...
    big hugs and kisses to you and Mum xoxox Trish
