Saturday stuff

Planning for bunny commences today. Well acutally I should say Bunnies! We are going to get two coz little bunnies like to have company! We are going to look at hutches and runs today - I've found alot on the internet - there are a lot of companies that make them! It works out cheaper than making them ourselves and you have to have special wood treatment so as not to harm the little things! There is more to think about than I thought to look after a little bunny wabbit! Im researching and learning coz I want mine to have the best home ever!!

I fell over the other day - silly me! I really hurt myself - hurt my shoulder and my leg - does not do my back very good!! It was also embarrassing as all my friends were waiting for me at the bottom of the hill! They were lovely to me though - then I burst into tears!  It was just before my English exam too! But I think I did well in that! Just had to talk to the examiner for half an hour - he was really nice.

I spoke to my Aunty last night - my Aunty Pat - she is 78 years young. She is now thinking of her future - where will she live when she cant cope with her house. She lives in the house that my Mum was brought up in and was my Nanny's house. My Aunty Pat never left home and when her husband died she and my Nan lived together til my Nan died. My Aunty Pat looked after my Nan. When I was little I used to stay with my Nan and Aunty Pat alot whilst my Mum and Dad were working. My Nan was like a second Mum to me - I was very close to her. Also my Aunty Pat has no children of her own and has always thought of me and Phil very fondly. She is a good Aunty Pat! Anyway, I told her that she should never worry - I would never let her go into a home. We are thinking of building an extension so she can come live with us. But it means her moving away from Portslade and moving to Hastings. She said she wont mind that - she can make friends at any of the churches here in Hastings. I told her that there is a church right behind our house - so as long as she has her Church she said she would feel great. Also she would have me to look after her.  I want to be able to do that.  The other option is to sell both houses and buy one already with a Granny annexe. Lots to think about! I just don't want my Aunty Pat to go in a home when she is unable toget around and I also dont want my Mum and Dad to have that worry either!

Right Im off bunny shopping.

That is mighty nice of you to want to take care of your aunt, I realize you feel close to her on account of her helping with your raising up. Still it is good of you to do that. Happy Bunny hunting. I hope you will be ok after the fall you took. Have a nice weekend. Helen

Hiya - Just make sure them bunnies are not likely to produce lots more bunnies otherwise you will have more than you bargained for and will need a skyscraper of a hutch for them!!!! You look after yourself after that fall.......just be careful and no rushing round (bet that was what you were doing!!!), don't worry you are in good company, my Angela rushed down the stairs on Thursday, did not turn in time and bashed her knee on the door frame!!!! Ouch!!

I'm sure your Aunty Pat will enjoy living in Hastings although Portslade is very nice too. We're lucky here on the south coast that there are lots of nice places to live. Let's hope your aunt will have a few more years of independence yet. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/
