Once again I must make my excuses – I never finished blogging for Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, I haven’t shown you any finished objects or WIPs, and I’m afraid we must say goodbye to our daily photos of Archie.
I’ve taken a stall at our local May Fair Market this year, and am currently frantically sewing to make wares for it. I’m also in the process of setting up a new website! After a lot of consideration, I have decided to keep Plutonium Muffins as a personal knitting and spinning blog – so the new website will not detract from our content, and things here will stay pretty much the same! I’ll let you know when the other one launches, if you’re interested.
I am fairly devastated to have to tell you all that Archie passed away a couple of days ago. We don’t really know what happened – JS arrived in Devon for a visit lasting a few days, and one of the first things we did was wander down to the garden to see bunny. He had been ‘refusing’ to come out of his hidey-hole all day, so I extracted him with some difficulty to let JS see him…and realised immediately that something was very wrong. He was very lethargic and unresponsive, and couldn’t move around on his hind legs.
We put him in his box with loads of bedding, fresh water and food. He drank some water, and I thought that he would be OK till morning, so we left him for the night. First thing the next day I went down to check on him, and make arrangements for going to the vet. At some point in the night, the furry little floppy creature had left us.
Archie has been around for longer than Plutonium Muffins has, and he’s going to leave a big hole in our lives. I am so pleased that in the last month of his life he got to experience the open wide garden, and generally be happier than I have seen him in the years we have been together. I hope he’s joined Norman in bunny and piggy heaven, and the two of them are running riot up there.
Normal service at Plutonium Muffins will resume! You can look forward to a WIP tomorrow – I leave you with some of my favourite photos and videos of my dear little friend.
