Packing Up

My sister and I spent the morning doing the administration stuff that needs to be done in times like these.  All very sad but necessary.

Then I packed and sorted in the afternoon.  Ted has his travelling crate ready and I have all his toys to come with him.  During the trip north, the crate will be covered and the vet has given Ted anti-anxiety drugs as he is not the best traveller (think, whinge every mile).

This evening I popped out onto the golfcourse, after leaving the foxes their absolute positively last meal from me – one stayed behind to watch me afterwards. It was rather nice – he was saying thank you or probably more like is there any more?  And yes, there may be some butter tomorrow that can go out!

And these photos are from this morning’s walk. The golfcourse is a good place to think. I’ve been doing a lot of that recently.

Wish me and Ted luck for the next few days. We leave first thing for Cumbria tomorrow.

    Having done the administration paperwork several times – you and your sister have my sympathies.
    Keeping fingers crossed Ted travels fairly well. You are kind to the foxes while being practical.
    The trees on the golf course are lovely. Safe travels back home.

    Safe travels to both you and Ted. Think of the happy, loving welcome you both will receive once you are home.

    (I’ve been where you are; it’s a shock to the system, no matter the circumstances. Take good care of yourself…)

    Have a safe trip. Try to keep your mind from All you need to do. Stay focused . It will happen all in good time. Sending warm hugs and the best wishes to all.
    Not to add to your “stuff” but will the empty house be safe while you are away?

    Safe travels home to your loved ones both human and four legged. It will be bittersweet to leave the house and its beautiful surrounds behind. I have walked in your shoes and it is not an easy journey. God knows your every need Frances and he will help you. I continue to pray for you and your family.
    Love from Robyn xx

    I’m wishing you and Ted the safest of travels, Frances. So glad you are heading back home. God bless you and keep you safe on your way.

    What lovely photos. The trees are so sturdy and magnificent, especially against that sky. But Just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz said, “There’s no place like home”. Safe travels.

    Safe travels for you and Ted. Hope that Ted will be OK on the journey (and of course you). Shetland awaits!!
