'Ya Scalliwag!'

Before I get onto my card for today, I just wanted to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR & all the best for 2014.
I decided this year not to make any new years resolutions, because I only break them & feel guilty lol!
I also wanted to say I am really suffering at the moment with my M.E sleeping at least 15 hours a day! Which is madness, so if I don't comment on your blog as often as I usually do, I am really sorry. Hopefully things will start to improve soon. 
One fantastic thing that happened over the hols was....me & Nige went to Gentleshaw when it was closed to help feed all the animals, which meant lots of furry snuggles! We fed the rabbits which are mahoosive can't remember what breed they are tho...I had meerkat snuggles while Nige fed them, which was great Basil is a funny little man, really cuddly. We also fed Saxon the wolf & had lots of snuggles & his friend Quaver (who has only been there about a month) he is a Australian singing dog & sooooo sweet! The best furry encounter was we fed the Kinkajous these little furbabies are nocturnal so we have never seen them in all the years we have been going!!! But not only did we see them I fed one some grapes & oh my they are so sweet & gentle & fluffy & cute....Nige did take some fotos, will snag them off him & post asap!
Had a fab few hours feeding all the furbabies!
