LONG TIME NO SEE.....


Hello there! I know it's been a while, but that's because here at chez Snoopydog we have been having to get used to getting on with life without our dear, beloved 'leader of the pack' Mr Snoops; dearly loved husband and soulmate, Dad, Grandpa and Gramps! He passed away very suddenly in the early hours of  February 28th from acute bacterial meningitis, after nothing more than feeling a little under the weather for the previous two days.  He was only 62! Needless to say it came as a massive shock for something so sudden and unexpected to have happened. We are missing him very, very much, but in true family Snoops fashion we have surrounded ourselves with family love and supported each other through the last almost five weeks. My pal Josiekitten (Helen) has been a huge support at what is still a very sad time for her also. 

Gradually, each of my elder two children and their families have resumed their jobs and family life and today, the younger Miss Snoops has returned to her flat and job in London. We are a close family and are usually in  daily contact, even though we live in different parts of the country, so it still feels as though everyone is nearby!



Very little woolliness happened for two or three weeks, but little by little my beautiful Advent Calendar cushion has slowly been completed. It is bright and cheery and makes me smile. I love it so, so much! 

Everyone is coming home again for the Easter weekend and I have some sewing planned with Josiekitten and a couple of theatre visits during the Easter holidays, so life is gradually picking up on it's new pathway. 

Normal Sunday postings have hopefully just been resumed!

So sorry to hear your sad news.I was wondering where you were.I thought you might be bogged down with school work.Losing a pet is so hard.My brother and wife lost their King Charles Spaniel in September and a few weeks ago got another one (born on Xmas Day so called Holly).Although they are loving the new puppy they are finding it hard work!!!Will you get another dog?You are probably too raw at the moment to even think about it.
have a good Easter break and keep busy.
