~Life is Overwhelming at Times~

Just a quick visit and an apology for my absence.  Things are rather full on here lately.  My dad has been diagnosed with cancer and has now started chemotherapy.  I have been spending hours on the phones most days trying to get them the help they need in the home with cooking and cleaning as mum is blind and has always relied on dad to do the cooking and cleaning.  Dad is a fighter and he is keeping positive.  My brother and I are helping any way that we can but its not always easy when we have jobs and families and issues  of our own to deal with.  I think i have finally managed to get them a care package to help with some aspects of their home care in the shape of cooking and a little light cleaning, so that will aleviate a bit of the pressure.

On a lighter note we have a new addition to our furbaby family....little Rosie.  She is a chihuahua cross, pomerainian, cross mini foxterrier.  Bit of an allsort, and very much the rascal.  I bought her for hubby as we had to put his beloved Cooper down last year.    We then had to babysit a (disabled) clients new puppy after her owner fell ill an hour after getting her and ended up in hospital for 4 days.  Little Millie melted my heart and was a play pal for little Rosie (or should I say partner in crime)  The two were inseparable and handing her back was high on the list or hardest things I have ever had to do.  My only consolation was I would see her every Friday (today). 
I have come to the conclusion I am more of an animal person than a people person.   Love my furbabies.
Here are some piccies of my babies.
