Animal Farm...

I just don't know where the time is flying to..
I blink.. another week has gone by.. is it a sign of old age??
Geoff is working everyday,but we had a bit of a scare last week when he came home feeling rough.. as he has 8 or 9 people in the Land Rover 7 days a week, it's inevitable that he worries about contracting some nasty bug.
So, Thursday night, Geoff exploded from both ends all night.. nasty nasty nasty!, He looked awful and had to cancel the Friday's drive.
I nursed him all day, he didn't want for anything!! Such a saint, I hear you whisper!!
Saturday he was still not 100% but went off to work..
Saturday night, I felt rather weird..guess what!! All hell let loose, I didn't leave the bathroom all night...
Of course, morning comes and I'm left, home alone...
Today, my headache has gone and I've eaten toast but don't make me laugh, feel like I've broken all my ribs( from all that retching!!)
Enough!!! I hear you cry!!
Ok,so, above, photos are latest of kittens. Yes, they do leave the cage but I can't photograph them then as they run faster than me!!

These are some donkeys that live at a Donkey Farm above Ierapetra. It's a charity run by an English couple.
We go there to dig up the donkey poo for the kypos.

And lastly, look at Dewi..hasn't he grown!!
He's fine, loves to go on long walks, but can be a stubborn little (not so much little anymore) cuss!
We've only one angel fish now!
I'm on nights for a week now, then a plane trip to Wales, can't remember why though....
AAAAaaaaaaaggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!
I'm SO excited!!!

Good job I didn't publish my post on Sunday then Jude.... you might have been the first house in Crete to be pebble dashed on the interior!!! And now its my turn for ribs that hurt....

Hope you are much better. X

Cheryl said...

Love the kitties! They're soooo cute!
And bravo to you...digging up your own donkey poo! haha, I can't imagine.
I hope you feel better, especially for your trip to Wales. It's all coming so quickly!
Have a better day:)

Aww, look at them. Look at Dewi. You must be bursting with excitement for the trip. yes, feel better, rest and get your energy up again for the trip. Can't help but be excited for you too. It'll be grand, I just know it. :)

Ms B. Thrift said...

Judith said...

katie jane said...

Oh, you poor, poor souls! I feel so badly for you. I do hope you recover in record time. That has to be a real concern for you two, being in such close contact with so many people from everywhere.

The kitties are adorable, but WOW - that Dewi is very much bigger! And what a cute face, too. He turned out to be a rather handsome dog.

I've been watching your fires on our nightly news reports and I'm wondering how close they are to where you live? They look so awful and have cause so much damage.

Hope you are feeling better now.

Frances said...

Hello Jude,

Hoping that you and yours are feeling much, much better. Ribs all healed, etc.

Dewi is so beautiful! Cats are all right, but I remain a dog fan.

Have a grand time in Wales ...hoping that you'll blog about the trip.

bindu said...

Sounds bad! Hope you feel better. Dewi has really gorn - it seems like just now that you posted puppy pictures. Take care.

Pondside said...

Jude you'd better do some serious self-care if you're to make that trip to Wales in top shape. So sorry to hear about the wretched retching (couldn't resist that!)but glad to hear that it wasn't long-lived.
Who will care for all the critters when you're gon?

Lynn said...

So sorry you both had the flu it seems. Oy. Awful that. Do hope you are both fully recovered now.

The animals are all delightful to see.

What is kyros? And why does it need donkey poo? LOL

Lynn said...

Have a wonderful time in Wales too!!!

Artist Unplugged said...

How cute the kittens are and Dewi is so adorable and so BIG! Is it wedding time??? Been thinking of you, hearing of fires over there, any where near you...I hope not.

Chris said...

Dewi looks so grown up! Hope you're feeling much better now Jude, especially with the wedding coming up! Best wishes. Lesley

Clare W said...

Hope you feel much better soon. My daughter has it whilst we are here in Cornwall - but thankfully not as bad as you. Keep your chin up!

cupcakes.gr said...

Those kind of bugs are awful and leave you so drained! Not long until the wedding! I hope you have a wonderful time!

Jackie said...

Well you were complaining about not losing weight fast enough!
I hope you have a great time at the wedding.

Kitty said...

Gosh, that bug sounds awful. I hope you're both feeling better now. The animals are all gorgeous. Have a lovely time in Wales. x

Mim said...

Hope you're feeling better

periwinkle said...

Ivy said...

I suppose you must be in Wales by now. Hope you have a great time and look forward to hearing all about the wedding. The kittens are sooooo cute.

Hi Jude, have opened up a replacement blog, (still called by the same name) and I would love you to continue to follow. Think you might have to click on this link to reinstate yourself as follower (only if you want to, though). Thanks for supportive comments. Hope wedding was wonderful.x

St Ives Birds & Photo Journal said...

Jude, Dewi is beautiful but you probably got the squits from having all those bloody cats round. I hope you're fully recovered anyway. X

ChrisH said...

Oh berlimey, you must be about here somewhere by now. Pity the weather's been so rubbish... although the sun is out today.

Flowers said...

It was nice going through your cattitude. Keep it up the good work. Cheers :)

Hi thx for visiting my Blog...Mitilene, Lesbos to answer you. Heavenly. I can't bare thinking of those kitties - we lived in Spain ( boaty people too ) I can't understand the attitude. I had my kitten nutered yesterday - no unwanted babies around here... though the teens would love a litter !

Artist Unplugged said...

Miss you Jude!

blackbird said...

I'm coming late to this but I'm loving the catchup on your life. I have few photos of Jack as a puppy unless you count a tail or paw. At three, he's calmed down a bit but is too curious about the camera so now I get a nose.

St Ives Birds & Photo Journal said...

Dewi's gorgeous Jude. I haven't looked on here for a while but neither have you posted anything it seems. You're as bad as me ;-))
