Fundraising Update – Doggy Hamper and Raffle

Silver’s Six Month Birthday

I debated whether to include this in part of my general sixteen week pregnancy update blog since it was obviously part of my week but this I feel warranted its own blog as it was rather a special occasion. After all, we can’t go to Newcastle for her one year birthday as originally planned with…
