And This Little Pig said I've Been MIA

Yes I've been Missing In Action. I had to make a dash home last Thursday, and only returned home this morning.

My Mum took ill last week, she is going to be alright, it was a combination of a lot of things, working too hard, dehydration, a touch of heat stroke and stress. But it was enough to get her to go to the doctors for the first time in 11 years. So to add to this combination the Doctor informs her that she has high blood pressure. And yes it was high 200/100!

No he didn't put her on medication, cause he knows how worked up she can get, and it is coming down. She asked me to come home, and I have spent the last five days basically following her around the farm, telling her to calm down don't stress, and stay off the internet and stop self-diagnosing... ahhhhh!!!

Really she is going to be fine, it's just that at 67 she has to finally realise she has to slow down a little, and she has never ever really been sick, except for the broken ankle 7 years ago, and she was a bad patient then :D

So I thought some calming photos would help do the trick. I took a lot of farm photos and will post them over the next couple of days, but for now some dawn and later afternoon landscape photos, taken from the back yard out to the east.

Oh the puppies are doing fine 4 weeks old now, and starting to get really mobile, playing, fighting and biting with their lovely sharp little teeth, although they are not eating much Evie is just too good a mother, but they are really starting to pull her done, no mater how much she eats. Photos tomorrow, promise.
