Our 10th Blogoversary


Ten years ago today on July 20th 2006 we started our blog. We didn't for one minute think we would still be here today blogging.

When Eric had to leave us we very nearly stopped then, but we have made so many friends over the years and had so much support that we knew we couldn't leave.

You can read our first post here and our next post which is when we posted our first photos is here.
We weren't very good at getting the layout right back then, but mum said she was going to leave it as it originally posted rather than start altering things.

Here are just a few photos from over the years.

Baby boys when we first arrived in our new home.

Watching the world go by.

Mouse watch.

On patrol and checking holes in tree trunks.

Heading for home!


Thank you for our lovely blogoversary card, Sammy.

This post nearly didn't get done and it's not the one that was planned. We lost our internet at 8am on Friday and it didn't come back until 4pm on Saturday. It lasted 10 minutes and went again. When it came back mum was like a crazy woman trying to get something done before it went again.
We were due to change providers on Friday but it is now being done on Tuesday (yesterday) because they told mum we need a double appointment because we are a long way from the connection point.
She did tell them that at the time but they said it wouldn't make any difference. It proves that mums do know best!

We haven't been able to visit anybody but will whenever we have a connection. Don't worry if you don't hear from us before today, but we hope we will be around before this post gets published. Luckily my mum schedules our flashback and selfie posts.

  1. Happy 10th Blogoversary!!!!! I wish I had known about blogs back then because I would have followed you all along. I am thankful to have found you 2 years ago. Those are great photos, I will click back on your first post. I am enjoying your photos this week in the Cat Blogosphere calendqar- how appropriate they are in for this week. I am glad your internet is fixed now, that is so frustrating. XO
