Meet Lilly

As mentioned in my last post we have not had her for long, actually not even 24 hours yet. A friend of mine saw an advert for her on our version of Ebay on facebook. They got her three weeks ago but within days my friend went into labour and gave birth to a very cute little baby boy called Austin. The situation was not very ideal for Lilly and it soon became evident that their house was not right for Lilly. So at the weekend Dan said that we would give her a home but my friends husband said that he wanted to keep her. However, yesterday my friend turned up and said that she knew the situation was wrong, Lilly was suffering so asked for us to take her. Well now I have a very tiny bundle fast asleep purring away on my chest. The boys love her but she is not too sure of them yet so they are being kept apart and gradually introduced.

Dan is happy because he has a little bundle that follows him everywhere and cries if he doesn't pay her any attention.

So please welcome Lilly Marshall to the family :-D

8 things about me ...

My Aunty recently passed on an award to me, thank you Aunty T! Well here goes 8 things to tell you about myself:

1) I live in Germany and I am right next to the border to Holland. I have to admit that ich liebe (I love) Holland a lot more than Germany.

2) As of yesterday Dan and I have 3 pets in Germany which are my amazingly cute dogs (not biased at all) Jack and Russell and now a very tiny little 7 month old kitten called Lilly. I was not intending on getting any more animals but the circumstances around Lilly meant that we couldn't say no. I shall upload photos in a moment to show her off.

3) I now have a paid job as a Youth Worker at the local Youth Centre. I teach Arts and Crafts to the children and also have got a few people into card making, scrapping and all kinds of home made delights.

4) I am a voluntary worker at the Thrift Shop on camp. It is basically like our version of a charity shop but we sell the items and a large percentage of the money goes back to the original owner of the items.

5) I have a few nicknames since coming to Germany. The latest is Aunty Yoda because my friend said that I am always right and know the answer to everything. Sam has also taught her daughter to wave her index finger when she says 'do the Yoda!'

6) I have finally overcome my oversion to smelly nappies and have changed a few now without gagging! I am rather proud of myself for that lol

7) I love taking photos and for my Birthday Dan bought me a new camera because my old camera couldn''t keep up with me hehe

8) The most important one .... I miss my family lots and lots but hopefully I will be able to see them all soon.
