Rambling On… 25 October 2019


In the last newsletter I told you all how I’ve been struggling and I’m glad to say I feel much better even though I’m a bit sad and upset that Toby passed away on Monday.

We all knew it was inevitable but that doesn’t make the loss of a family member any easier. He was with us for just over 15 years and wasn’t just a pet. As I’ve already said, he was part of our family.

Even though it was a difficult decision to make to have him put down, we know it was for the best. He was in constant pain and struggling with his dementia. A lot of the time he had no idea where he was or what he was doing. He was having more and more “toilet accidents” in the house but when he had one in his bed and he didn’t even wake up, we knew it was time.

He is back with his sister now and I know that he and Tasha are watching over us all from above.

For the last for days I’ve been constantly looking for him and I’ve nearly even gone to feed him once or twice.

The other day I swear I heard him tap his nails on the glass for me to let him outside. #Sigh. Sniff#

It’s going to take us all a bit of time to stop looking for him, but he’ll be forever in our memories and in our hearts just like his sister is.

RIP Toby.

I’d like to thank Janice W. from Canada and Carol C. for your thoughts and support and letting me know that you’re both there for me while I was ill and if I needed someone to talk to.

Although I haven’t replied to you via email, I wasn’t ignoring you, I was just struggling day to day on my own. I really appreciate you both reaching out to me and will never forget your kindness.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. xxoo

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Stay safe, happy and healthy.

Love Becca Van xxoo

What Have I Been Reading?


I’ve just finished reading Elle James’ The Billionaire Husband Test (Billionaire Online Dating Book 1) and The Billionaire Cinderella Test (Billionaire Online Dating Book 2).

I enjoyed both these books and would recommend them to anyone to purchase and read.

I’m now reading Dale Mayer’s Ethan (The K9 Files Book 1). So far so good. I’m really liking the story.

I will leave it there for now.
Enjoy your week ahead, until next week.
