Hello Holly, Sounds like your birthday was absolutely wonderful. Those cakes certainly sound delicious, and to share them with your friends says a lot about your generosity and kindness. And another fruity flapjack the day before, how perfect is that. You have your dad all week. That must make you really happy. Do you really think i am brave having a crate? I am still trying to understand why i took exception to it when i was younger. It doesn't stop me being with mum and dad because much of the time i am awake the door is kept open so i can play with them or snuggle next to them whenever i want. But when i have a snooze, or if i am really restless and it is stopping them from relaxing, then the door is closed for a while. But i really don't mind as there is no time where i feel restricted. My main bed is upstairs which is where i curl up for the night. And i have an outside bed in the gazebo which gets put on the grass in the warmer months so i can soak up the sun (i love the sunshine.) Great to hear from you Holly. Catch up with you again soon. Keep well. Your friend Bud.
