Every year, we host the Sopley Garden Fete, which raises money for the village church. The summer was so wet that this year it was moved to September, which fortunately was a glorious day weatherwise. It was Inky's first outing after her re-fit, albeit, telephone number free!
A new committee has breathed new live into this annual event and this year it was a three day marathon, with hog roast and band and beer! I took the opportunity, with my friend Sue,who has a fantastic shop in Christchurch, Thomas and Lucia (check her out at http://www.thomasandlucia.com) to have a stand.

Sadly, I had to say goodbye to my gorgeous Joe that morning. Just a few days short of his 16th birthday. The last of my boys. The greatest gift we can give our pets, is to do for them what we are not able to do for ourselves.

It was really hard, but the right thing to do and he was Gentleman Joe to the very end. I miss you Joe.
