A Shadow Theme For My Blog Birthday

HAPPY (second) BIRTHDAY to Tikkie of the Bushveld’s Blog

Happy (second) Birthday to Tikkie of the Bushveld’s Blog!

I’m so happy it’s my Blog’s (second) Birthday

Happy (second) Birthday to My Blog!

Mum has been sick for a long time with a very sore back. This has made her tired and she hasn’t wanted to do much fun stuff until only a few weeks ago, so I haven’t been able to get onto her computer to talk to you all for ages.

She also hasn’t taken me for a nice long walk for too long, and I think I was happier than she was when she told me last week that her back is so much better that she feels like a stroll.

I wanted to show you our shadows. but it was drizzling a tiny bit and she didn’t take her camera with her. So I found this old photo of me on a walk with one of my Silly Sisters.


So many fun (and also not so fun) things have happened since I last wrote to you all and the event that has changed my life the most was the arrival of a new baby sister for me. Her name is Symmi, because the markings on her face are almost symmetrical.


Symmi. Picture credit: Helen

We have a sort of love-hate friendship. Sometimes I think she is a lot of fun. And sometimes I hate her.

Here are some fun pictures of us playing in the late afternoon shadows when we first met.


Cheeky so-and-so, sitting on me like that!


She thinks she has the upper hand.


But I’ll show her who’s boss in this house!


There, I Fixed it. More than a year later, but I fixed it.

    Tikkie, it is so good to see and hear from you again! I saw you (or your Mom) starting to comment on posts, and began wondering where you’ve been. Your new baby sister is no baby anymore. Good thing you finally got straight who is boss. 🙂 Have a Happy Valentine’s Day. ❤ Amy

      Oh Amy, I am so sorry I missed your Happy Valentines message! I only got it now.
      My poor Mum has been under the weather for a while but now seems to be fully recovered, so *hopefully* things are back on track again. Like WALKS!
