The door of the new year has now been opened and we are getting on with life in 2011.
The Christmas decorations have been taken down and things are slowly getting back to normal.
My daughter is now back home on the east coast and the house seems very quiet.
She rang to say that Rick, who is autistic, was moaning to her that he was homesick.
"What do you mean?" She said, "You are home."
"I miss everyone in Bristol." He replied.
Once they all got over their illnesses, the cousins played very well together in the attic and only emerged when they got hungry.
This morning, I was rather taken back when I saw what they had done up there. The whole room had been rearranged with bedding spread all over the place and they'd made it into little dens.
Oh well...... they did enjoy it.
Its back to school tomorrow for Amber and Millie, in fact Rick and Dean went back today. Its After School Club for me too.
Lily, the rabbit has made a remarkable recovery. I have had to dismantle the small part of the pen she was cooped up in. I thought she might try to injure herself in her quest to jump out. So even though I was advised not to put the two rabbits together, I decided to go with my instincts and my knowledge of my rabbits personalities, and leave them together permanently.
Well, Ash so far, hasn't pulled out her stitches and they seemed so pleased to snuggle together again. It is a joy to watch them.
In fact Lily has been bouncing about in sheer delight. I am sure she has recovered far more quickly because she was part of a bonded pair.
Lets hope the vet was just playing on the side of caution and that I won't live to regret it because the stitches are not due to come out until next week.
