Before Mama and I went to go and see Max playing basketball, Max and Nicola got to spend a little time with Ellie. Continue reading “A day with Max and Nicola”
Christmas Day was spent amongst great company, eating too much food, playing lots of games and opening presents.
All in all, it was a really enjoyable day and Ellie was on top form, making the most of the family she had around her. Continue reading “Christmas 2014”
On Christmas Eve, Mama had made plans long in advance to visit Raystede Animal Sanctuary, in Ringmer, near Lewes.

Since we’re heading back to England for Christmas this year, we had lunch with a family friend (Karli) yesterday and opened a couple of presents while we are still in Florida.
There are moments when Ellie gets quite snuggly and we have to jump on them, because they’re few and far between.
