The reason for all this Ooohing and Arrrhing is..
This little Chap.
Some of you might remember that one of our cat's called Ginger died a few months back, and yes I did say I would never have another cat again!
But when Hannah asked me if she paid for a Ginger Kitten from a rescue home, could she have one? I said....Yes !
Of course being a soft Mummy and a big cat lover I didn't need too much convincing.
So here he is, Milo.
When he first came home to live with us we were all Ooohing and Arrhing at him, saying "oh Milo you're so cute". Now it's "Oh Milo you Little Monster!"
He is mad! He chases all the other cats round, that are nearly ten times bigger than him, picking play fights, he's fallen in the pond, he's running up and down all my curtains, scratching the chairs and eating the carpet? He has even climbed up my hubby's leg when the poor chap was wearing his short, Ouch !!!!
But saying all that we really love him. To tell the truth he suits our, some what, crazy family.
He loves the Garden and hides in the veggie patch waiting for Salem, the big cat, to walk by, then pounces on him.
Can you see in the background my Courgette plants? They are one of the best veggies I have had grow this year, as I don't think the garden's enjoyed this on and off weather very much.
Lots of my plants have struggled. Having had loads of Courgette's, I was beginning to wonder what to do with them, then I came across a recipe for Courgette Cupcakes that was in a book, which Vanessa from Coco Rose sent me called Eat Me.
I thought if it's Yucky then at least I have tried something different.
I made a large cake instead of cupcakes, Surprisingly it's really good, a little unusual maybe, but I am definitely making it again.
Talking of cakes, there was a lot of cake eating at the coffee morning I went too last Friday.
Here is a snap of us all.
Jenny from Winningbriggs organised it, and gave everyone a little gift each, a really sweet little tape measure which she had covered, each one was different and had a little flower and a button on it.
I love mine Jenny thank you x
That's me in the blue cardi (I hate having my photo taken), Jenny is sat next to me, there's Karen & Gill, and the other lady was Anjalee and her daughter. Anjalee has just started a blog called Yarn Lover, go and have a peek.
It was really nice meeting up with everyone.
Gill from Dosie Rosie & Karen from Tilly Rose.
I am leaving you with a photo I took from the Country Living Mag.
It was a piece they did about outdoor escapes and my favourite was this one.
The hideaway would be absolutely perfect in my garden, as all my fences are painted that colour.
I spend endless hours in my garden, so I would just love something like that to sit in, hey I could have a wood burning stove too, bliss.
Definitely something to look in to for next year.
Right I am off now, I am in the middle of painting a bed that my Hubby has made in to a Bench/Daybed. I shall show you once it's all finished.
Hope all is good with everyone, have a lovely weekend...Em xxx
