    Sleep Tight Archie!

    So I went up to give the boys their evening veggies and found my poor baby Archie had passed away in his house! I cried like a baby whilst poor Artie sat in the corner watching me (or so it looked like). I’m so upset, even more upset that I don’t know why? He was always tiny and had one day...
