…….. she has become a mother (again) ……. having taken the mahooooooosively momentous decision to adopt a poor, abandoned neglected and unloved mite ………..
…….. but not of the human variety, she’s adopted a donkey, to wit William D, he is sooooooo cute, let’s just say our hearts melted as soon as we saw his picture….. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!
We have sort of likened it to our taking Hugh to our collective bosom, although we prefer to think of it as fostering, rather than a full blown adoption (well, hopefully), and Hugh, of course, has two legs instead of four and lacks a swishy tail!
Sadly, Jan the Fan can’t actually take William D home with her, which, although she might miss the cuddles, she won’t need to purchase a humungous amount of carrots from Tesco Online each week AND neither will she have to shovel a “certain something” off her patio or decking!I could see that Darrell was filling up and getting that soppy look that frequently makes his eyes cross …….. but I have told him, in no uncertain terms that under no circumstances are we considering adding a donkey to our entourage, especially not when we presently have both Hugh and Nigel under our roof!!!!
