Grandparents

We are now proud grandparents! Tobias was born on March 23, 2015 at 9.15AM, 4.080 kg and 52 cm tall! Obviously we have not seen much of him yet but we have both held him while he and his mother were still in hospital and we also saw him sleeping in his little cot earlier this week. We are wishing...

Two and a half kilos of tantrum

02/08/2014 09:29
She weighs only 2.5 kg but she knows exactly what she wants and what she does not want. We have had her now for five months and we love her. She is about  two and a half years old but still has a lot to learn. The first two years of her life she lived with an elderly lady in Leeds and we...

Early morning walks

This was the coldest morning since we are back in the Alsace. I should have worn some gloves on our early morning walk but I do not like wearing them and also, I wanted to take some pictures because it was gloriously sunny although the north eastern wind was very cold. In the shade there were still...

When Aischa died she left a great gap in our life which we wanted to fill. Not to replace Aischa, which would not be possible because she was such a great little thing and gave us so much love and pleasure, but to fill the empty space she left behind. I suppose just like the empty nest syndrome...

Aischa

Aischa, our great, couragious little Yorkshire terrier left us on February 27. I went to France for only a week and when I left on the Wednesday she still looked okay. However, thinking back her deterioration started already on the way from Ireland to Scotland and probably even before that. When...

2013 in review

31/12/2013 14:56
Casting my mind back to what all happened in 2013 I must admit that there were some very sad moments. First of all my mother died in February. Not unexpectedly, she was nearly 95, but it still comes as a shock. However, I was happy that I managed to be there with her.  Than, in April, Krümmel,...

The bliss of having a secondary home or holiday cottage.

05/12/2013 17:32
Have you ever dreamt of having a holiday place of your own? Be careful what you wish for – you may get it! No, it is not as bad as that. There are times when it really is bliss. You can go there whenever you feel like it and you can do in it what you want because it is yours. However, this is only...

I am NOT going to be dictated to ...

  ... by a less than 3 kg heavy creature! But, of course, we do, at least, most of the time. However, I draw the line at going to bed at 9 PM! When Aischa tells us at about 9 PM that she wants to go out for a wee, I take her outside so that she can do her business. And she does, at least when...

Chance encounters

Yesterday we had to go to Galashiels and on the way back, we stopped in Selkirk. Somebody had told me about the Borders Scrapstore, which is a charity shop. This shop collects, sorts and redistributes surplus materials from industry, which are safe to use creatively for art, craft and play....

I know, I have not been writing much on this website and seem to be doing more on my blog: http://pagehirst.blogspot.co.uk/. I have not even had much time to read all my emails except for the very personal ones. I have been using my time on trying to find out the best way to promote and market...
