Not much has changed since the last post. It has rained almost every day this summer, the forecast for the month of March is rain every day. The dogs will need to develop webbed feet.
In August Scarlet was diagnosed with a terminal illness. The vet basically sent her home to die. We panicked and went out and got another dog right away so Frank wouldn't be alone. Well, it is 6 months later and Scarlet is still plugging along, although the most recent development is that she is losing clumps of fur so she now has little bald patches on her chest and back.
The renovations progress slowly, as does the weight loss - have lost 16kgs so far. I did throw away the granny panties today - hurrah!
