Just in case my sudden silence hadn’t made it obvious, Doug is home from New Zea­land with a pro­vi­sional res­ident visa firmly lodged in his pass­port. He brought back a cold from the plane and then gave it to me (bad Doug!) but we’re get­ting better now. He’s much calmer and we’ve been snuggled up doing couple things for most of the long weekend. It’s been divine.

Thank you to Tracey & Craig for looking after him! And espe­cially for returning him safe and sound. Well, as sound as he was, anyway… *smirk*
