This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

Jan 20th

As predicted, we're having rain, which is icy cold, and it is already snowing a bit further East, in Wales and England.  

Earlier in the morning, Madame stepped into the back garden - and came straight back indoors, not happy with the weather. 
So I did not take her into Llandaff Fields: we only walked down the back lane and back again. She was so slow - it was all I wanted her to do - she does need exercise, even if its just an infinitesimal amount.

We did hear raven calls, earlier and far away, coming from Pontcanna Fields - and when we got back from our little walk, two ravens called from the rooftops as we walked along. 

I am not going out alone today to feed them, because I do not want to leave Madame on her own. 
Depending on how she does, and depending on the weather, we may venture out tomorrow, either together or me on my own.

The ravens might perhaps be more keen to come for their scraps when I miss feeding them for a day or so ...

Hi {Yma} - I think you were quite smart indeed to not take Madame out for a walk to feed the ravens - the weather there just doesn't seem conducive to walks!
I hope she's continuing to do well, as you said in your post for the 19th - do she and Bas ever have indoor "play dates" or is Bas too big and energetic for that sort of thing?
In any event, please take care of yourself and Madame first and foremost {Yma} -the ravens always find food - it's their job!!

Thank you both, so very much!

I need to remind myself all the time that tears prevent me from cherishing the days we still have got, Madame and me.

Yma, your blog was recommended to me by a mutual friend of ours, Realwest. It's absolutely lovely!

I'm so sorry to see that Madame isn't doing well, and I'll keep you in my prayers.
