RIP Alvin!

Sorry for not having posted over the
last few days.
It's turning a traumatic week.
The boys pet hamster Alvin had started to slow down,
old age we thought, but it turns out he was rather poorly.

He started to get noticably unwell on Tuesday.
He had not really been eating or drinking and was stuggling to get out of his cage.
Yesterday he got even worse
so we took him to the vets where we had an emtional farewell.

It turned out he had stomach cancer and there was nothing they
could do.

The boys were very upset, but we were able to take him and bury
him in a very special place.
We then printed pictures of Alvin for the boys to have in their room
by their beds.

I've finally found some time to craft
so pop back later and I'll show you what I've been up to.
