Phoebe Friday and a blast from the past….

Today I am visiting Josie and the wonderfully naughty and loveable Phoebe the Jack Russell.



Now at the grand age of  91, Josie was at the South London Women’s Hospital on the day I was born.

She has always lived in her grandmother’s house in London which is crammed to the gills with animal memorabilia along with numerous clocks – none of which tell the correct time.

Last time I visited she had found a photograph of me taken in the garden of the house when I was seventeen months old in 1947.

Here it is – a blast from the past…..


For the weekend a magical hummingbird drinking from the sweet nectar of life, and for my friends in the United States – have a lovely Labour Day weekend….the last of the summer.

A visit with Phoebe and Henrietta

Today I get to visit my favourite Jack Russell, Phoebe.    

Phoebe lives with Josie, who was a childhood friend of my Mothers.    Like me, Josie is an animal lover….which is evident as you enter her home.     Every surface and wall is covered with animal memorabilia, from cats and dogs, horses, elephants, donkeys, you name it.     There are also numerous clocks, none of which tell the correct time.   It’s a little like walking through the looking glass…..


Phoebe is always so excited to see me….and immediately tries to get into my bag where she knows I will have Welsh Cakes…which she loves:)

This is the look she gives me when she wants more…..how can I possibly resist…


Phoebe has a friend, named Henrietta…

Henrietta is a budgerigar…..not quite a hummingbird but very beautiful in her own way.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.  

May you float free of time with the Magical Hummingbirds.
