October catch up

October has passed by in flash it seems.  The shed has now been completed (see above) - and just needs the doors put on before the winter weather sets in.

We had a lovely holiday on a beach sailing club in Turkey - a first for us and enjoyed by the whole family.  Sadly, just before we left we discovered that one of our cats, Oscar, had been killed on the road outside our house.  He was only a year old and a fanatical hunter and unfortunately had spread his territory to the field on the other side of the road.  We still have his brother Spooky, but really miss him as he was a really affectionate wee chap.

The kids are now back at school and we are starting the headlong rush towards Christmas and New Year.  Our daughter is sitting prelim exams in November and our oldest son is getting ready to play his trumpet in a number of concert band events.

The horses are now coming in at night, for a bit of respite from the wet weather and also to 'save' our paddocks from turning into mud.  They seem happy with this, Zac (our oldest horse) especially!


  1. So sorry to hear about your kitty. :(

  2. thanks - he's the first cat we've lost like that, we all miss him lots :(
