Saga of a woman old enough to know better who lets her life be governed by the ridiculous hobby of breeding and showing dogs, musing on life, the twenty first century, Cameron and his mini-me, and the occasional sheep.

Well, that`s the last time I make jokes about the Winter Vomiting Virus! It hit me a week ago, and I still feel I am crawling out from under. Not at all Christmassy, that, and no, I will not be describing it here. Suffice it to say that the Paps, always very sympathetic to illness, were reduced to giving each other those knowing looks which say "Well, who`s going to feed us when she kicks the bucket?"

Wobbly or not, I some how got Daisy to her proposed husband, braving the horrrors of pre-Christmas trains...this is the time of year when rail timetables slide inexorably into anarchy, and train heating fails, and overcrowding rules. I was lucky and only had two delays of an hour each, and one was in heated premises. The other, alas was in Waverly, reminiscent of January in Novosibirsk, as any Scottish traveller knows. Home, to bed and ill again.

Meanwhile, all the girls have come out of season. Great sigh of relief. But not from Shelby. Somehow he had decided that this was HIS time. And although Ella is no longer receptive, he is courting her desperately with all manner of Chin noises, and being bitten (delicately, as she does everything), and treated to Ella`s Big Growl, which has been described as the sound of a very angry wet wasp.

Somehow I am going to get it all together for Christmas.......stuck together with duct tape and glue at this rate.
Ah, shame. You have been having a really bad time one way or another. I hope 2012 will turn the corner for you and bring you success in the ring and a return to good health (and no snow!!!).
I'm glad you are feeling better and I hope you are able to stay well for a long long time.
Best wishes - Hester
Hope that you recover quickly and are able to appreciate all the Christmas feasting. Looking forward to following Daisy's news.
Regards Ann and Plato
Shelby does have ideas ... I hope that you are feeling better.
Thank you, all of you, for your good wishes - may you all have a great New Year.
