This has been a turbulent year since my last post in January. In February I started with a health problem which was put down to an irregular heartbeat. I was permanently breathless & going upstairs necessitated a stop halfway to catch my breath. The doctor told me that I wasn't allowed to bowl & that I should have a gentle walk each day as my only exercise. For once I followed his instructions.
At the end of March Sooty, my beloved cat had to be put to sleep as his liver had ceased to function. He was just 6 days short of his 17th birthday. To say that we were all devastated is an understatement. Lisa my dog kept wandering around the house looking for him & would cry when she couldn't find him. After all he had been there for here from the day I brought her home. We were all the same, the slightest thing & we were in tears.
Because he was bottle fed he loves human contact wanting snuggles two or three times a day. But if he gets the chance his favourite place is wherever Lisa is.
Since July Allen has one health problem after another and is only just starting to get better. He has managed 3 games of bowls since August but has won all three. As someone said "he hasn't lost it".
We are hoping that 2015 will bring better health for us both & hopefully a much quieter year.
