Hello from a stranger.......

 
Hello everyone. I have so missed my blog. I have not been to it or looked at blogs for so long. Not because I wanted to stay away but because I let some heartless trolls get to me a lot.
Last week Barrie and I went to visit our good friends Jackie and Ivor and the gorgeous Flynn. I spoke with Jackie and discussed what had been said and I decided that I was not going to let them win. I probably wont blog all the time but I will blog again. I do put photo's on FB and share things there but its not the same. I have met so many lovely friends through the blog and my gorgeous GJ. Many I have met in person and that is a highlight for me and special. several years ago I met Jackie and Ivor and they came here to stay, We knew then that we would be special friends. When we went to stay with them last week it was special and we so loved out time with them, every minute. We met and cuddled with Flynn and we were only sorry that we didn't get to meet Eric too but he went to the bridge the same year as GJ.
Here are a few pictures from our stay and I will share more soon.
 

                                                   Meeting one of the horses that live there too. 



         Many hugs and kisses from Flynn and sweet Eric watches over us.....
                  Flynn  in his pot. After seeing him in pictures on the blog it was lovely to see it in person..
                                We went on several walks with Flynn and loved it..







                                    We had the best time and we promise we will be back soon...

What a fun visit that must have been!!! We are so happy to see you again. Bah humbug on those trolls. You need to change your settings to not allow anonymous comments as we are suspecting that is where they came from.

This looks like such a wonderful visit! And Flynn's human is right - don't let the haters win.

Flynn said...

I am so glad you have blogged again. As I said to you at the time, you have many friends here and we have all missed your posts. Don't let some anonymous idiots get to you. You, your blog and of course dear GJ are loved by so many.
We really loved having you to stay and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

It is SO wonderful to see you blogging! Have missed you and your lovely sensible approach to life. Fabulous to see you cuddling a kitty and I'm sure Flynn appreciated the scritches. Don't be a stranger. We still love to hear about you, your family and what you're up to.

Lots of love,

Lizzie, Max, and Tuck

How lovely to hear from you, I was wondering what has happended.
I can relate to some useless folk who have and still is upsetting me.
I have just this year released another poetry b ook.
Your pictures are someone and I wish you every happiness now you are back in the fold.

It's so good to hear from you again! We remember GJ; he was always one of our favorites. We're extremely partial to oranges here, after all. We're very sorry people were mean to you. Pawhugs to you.

Marg said...

It is so good to see you back again. OK, it is time for a little kitten or maybe two of them. GJ would be thrilled if you got a kitten or two of them. Just think how lucky they would be to be able to live with you and Barrie..
So glad you got to meet Flynn and he sure looked like he enjoyed you all too. Keep up the blogging.l

Kari said...

Lovey to see all of the beautiful photos of your wonderful visit and even more wonderful to hear from you again. Flynnie seemed to love you and Barrie.
It must be such a treat to cuddle him.
Tell those trolls to take their you know what and put it in their you know where.

John Bellen said...

Hello! It's good to read from you again. I was following the visit over at Flynn's blog, and saw the link to come here. It looks like it was a fun visit. Did you meet Flynn's people through blogging? I have wondered that a while.

In any case, don't worry about idiots who just want to cause trouble. The only way they can thing themselves worth anything is by making people feel bad. The best way to get back at them is to treat them with the contempt they deserve. You have plenty of friends and well-wishers out here in the Blogosphere.

YAY! It's great to see you!!! We're jealous that you got to meet Flynn and his Mom and Dad. It looks like a super visit!!!

Sweet Purrfections said...

We've wondered where you've been. Don't let those trolls get to you. You are a special person and our only regret is that Mom Paula didn't get to meet the two of you when you were in Vegas two years ago!

Katie Isabella said...

What a joy that had to have been there too and met the 5 of you. Oh that would have made my YEAR to meet two couples I so enjoy.

Please...if you can, don;t let nasty trolls dictate what you do here. We love you and if we see anything bad we know well it was not you. xoxoxoxox

Oh meow my what fun! Flynn and Angel Eric's parents are wonderful people and are so right to ignore those who do not have love in their hearts. We love to hear from you and maybe will see some photos of GJ.
