Mother love....

Hard to believe it has been three weeks... a large chunk of the family returns from America on Sunday morning... two more sleeps. Sounds like they are worn out after all the travelling, but have had a good time. The other two continue to report back on Bangladesh.... including photos and also a video on the view from a rickshaw. There are other tales of pet lizards, the attack of the insects and so on - read all on their blog ...

I braved going to "Marley and Me" the other night. Luckily I had my partner's shoulder and a paper napkin with me... but it was a lovely movie and I am glad we went. Life with pets is never dull, but I am sure mine have never rated on the same scale as Marley for behaviour.

Had some wonderful pictures sent to me lately.
