Denim Days and Losing A Beloved Pet…

October 21, 2020

Another Sad Time during 2020

Our precious Odin passed away unexpectedly on the 10th October, 2020 … so loved and so missed

Sad Times

There are no words to describe how sad we are to lose this little darling – completely out of the blue, maybe an error of judgement by the vet, maybe meant to be, but either way a devastating loss to no longer have our precious Odi in our lives.

His passing has been one of the worst times of my life and it’s just awful to experience such grief and also to see the grief of his little twin, Loki.

Little Loki has become so clingy and sleepy without his brother to get up to all sorts of shenanigans…

For the last six years I would no sooner sit down than this little mate and his brother would be in my lap. It’s heart breaking to watch sweet little Loki trying to find his brother and constant companion.

He is buried in our lovely, peaceful zen garden in Eden with the beautiful parrots and doves cooing and squawking above him …

I’m done with 2020.

I have barely left the house of late

Getting It Together In A Denim Skirt

I sourced this A-line, washed out denim skirt from a little boutique in Eden but the weather has reflected our mood of late and it’s actually been cold and wet, which is most unusual.

I was visiting the surgeon for a follow up on the operation I had a couple of months ago so just stuck with a button down blouse.

We’re in no hurry to return to the farm after the events surrounding Odin’s death so we will probably stay up here and catch up with some people, giving ourselves some time and space.

Interesting Skirt Shape and Animal Print

Love the uneven skirt hem and diagonal stitching and zip
I like looping my belt to add some interest to my waist because my waist is my best feature

It was nice to have a bit of warmth and to be able to wear my cute animal print sandals and sunnies with some gold jewellery and a little brown leather cross-body bag.

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web and I’d love to hear from you in the comments below or like or follow,

      Gosh! That was quick, Tamara!! it’s just a horrendous time. We did everything we could but it keeps running over and over in our minds and the crappy weather doesn’t help. We know he’s around in spirit … I get a bit tired of life’s struggles, which I know we all have, and that it will pass … thank you for your support, Tamara!! 🧚🏻‍♀️❤️🐝

        I’m here for you, anytime, Donna. Yes, the struggles can become overwhelming. “Pours when it rains” as they say. I know this all too well. You are not alone! xxxooo

    Oh, I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear Odin. It is a life-changing event to lose a beloved pet. And poor Loki who can’t even understand an explanation for the loss of his kitty partner!

    My thoughts are with you.

    I’m so sorry you’ve gone through this Donna. A lot of people don’t understand what it’s like when we loose our fur babies. I do. I really feel for you xx

      Oh thank you dear Laurie – I knew you would understand it.. it’s been a very hard time. We just feel so sad and confused that he’s been taken from us and of course we feel guilty that we didn’t do enough ..
      Thank you again for your support at this difficult time!

    My heart is embracing yours with the force of a million twinkling stars, dearest Donna. Please know that I am sorry beyond measure for the loss of your cherished cat. Having experienced numerous animals cross the rainbow bridge in my life (including our beloved cat, Stella, who tragically perished in the arson fire we experienced four years ago), I know that there are likely no words that could soothe even the slightest bit of the raw, intense, heart crushing grief/pain you’re feeling right now.

    So I will instead send endless support and understanding, love, serenity, and the promise that I am always, always just an email away if you need/want to talk about absolutely anything that you’re going through.

      We thank you immensely for your kind words and support at this sad and difficult time. Your understanding means the world to us as we try to leave the questioning behind of what we would’ve, should’ve and could’ve done and try to embrace our special pet’s precious memory. John is finding it particularly difficult and thanks you for your support. It’s like we see his face and mannerisms in his twin brother and that does bring us some peace and joy.
      Thank you again my wise and beautiful friend!

    I found it hard to like this post, so the like is for your outfit. I am so sorry for your loss Donna. Losing a family member, and our pets are our family, is never easy.

      It continues to be a difficult time, Diane, but we are just going on, as you do. We are still so upset and shocked – going over what we should’ve done and so on and his twin is so lonely and clingy. What a year, hey!?
      Enjoy your weekend, Diane – it’s good it’s warmed up a bit here!
