This morning I lost Saba, one of my Guinea Pigs. She had obviously passed away in the night, as I found her curled up in her little house with her friend Bridie standing guard. She was about four and a half, but I think she had a problem with her heart. That was due to be checked out by the vet this afternoon, but maybe it was just her time to go.
She was a timid little thing, and always tiny - I think she was a bit of a runt! Runty she may have been, but she was pretty and a little unusual - a dainty little face, sticky-up ears and odd eyes, one was blue, the other brown. She also had her little crest on her forehead, as you can see.
She's modelling one of Jane at Snapdragons Garden's embroidered badges in this picture.
Sleep tight, little one x

I haven't given up blogging completely - I just haven't felt much like posting recently.
Although we had a lovely holiday in Yorkshire last month, life hasn't been terribly good to us recently - neither the crafting or Partylite is bringing in any money (both seem to just be costing money instead). I've had virtually no work since May, so no money coming coming in but still with bills to pay. However, I now have some work again, so that will at least ease some of the money worries for now.
There are many, many things that I need to say, the kind of things you only really share in heart-to-heart talks with your closest friend, but an open blog isn't the best place to air these thoughts.
When you don't have anyone but yourself to talk to, it's very easy to end up being overwhelmed with the negative thoughts and feelings that build-up.
One day I will beat this wretched gremlin that moves in whenever I feel down x
