I think I'll take a break from consistent blogging until September 4th. I have my brother's wedding coming up next weekend and so have to be ready to fly across the country next Thursday. Also, a neighbour died yesterday and I'm trying to help by looking after a child that came with one of the relatives (who will be here for several weeks) so including my two, my neice and nephew and random neighbourhood kids I'll likely be averaging about 5 or 6 kids in the house.
Not that I absolutely won't post but for the next week but it's most likely that I won't. Between August 30th and September 4th it's a certainty.
And just in case anyone was wondering, Calico didn't make it. The poor guy finally died yesterday morning and is now buried under a bed of Nasturtiums that will bloom in all the beautiful colours of a calico fantail.
