Thanks to you all for your condolences. Archie was a very vocal moggie and the house is deathly quiet without him. I've had lots of cards and some flowers and it helps to know how much you all understand the pain and loss.
The Mad Hatter's fund-raising tea party for Target Ovarian Cancer was a great success. Friends baked the most marvellous cakes and those left I asked people to sell. One friend has a bible study group every week and bought 12 pieces but gave me £20, another attends a day class and bought 10 at £1 a slice and so on. Some very generous friends donated as much as £20, even tho' they couldn't attend and so far we have raised over £260!! We all wore silly hats and anyone on a diet is now wishing they hadn't overindulged!"
