Merry Christmas to you all

Just a quick post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year. 

Christmas Eve will be spent with the husband's family, and Christmas Day with my family - how good is that!


Our Christmas Table
I didn't have enough of the one dinner set to complete 7 settings, so I mixed and matched ;-)

I love my Royal Albert, Old Country Roses

It works nicely with the Maxwell Williams White Gold

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ;-)

2 down, 2 to go

two kittens in the cage - they were so very quiet - now they are in the capable hands of the Animal Welfare League - they are beautiful, I am sure they will find a new home.

now there is just the black & white one and the mother left - will try to catch them tomorrow morning - it is too hot this afternoon to have them trapped in a cage.

Tuesday Treasures

Over HERE Melody is hosting Tuesday Treasures.

This week Melody has showcased a beautiful clock - such a pretty thing ;-)

My treasure is a Sarah Kay mirror picture given to me by my sister for my 16th Birthday in 1976.
It is in my craft room and I get to see it every day.
In January this year, I discoverd a range of Sarah Kay stamps.  I am hoping to increase my collection real soon ;-)

Kitten Watch

These photos were taken through the lounge window


I only got a glimpse of the other kittens on Sunday morning, but have not seen them since - I hope nothing has happened to them ;-(

The trap will be set tomorrow and hopefully, they will find new homes with the Animal Welfare League.

Be vewwy vewwy qwiet ....... we are hunting kittens


Mother Cat
 We have a stray cat in our yard - it has been hanging around for a few weeks.  Hubby first noticed the cat about 4 weeks ago.  I noticed it in the back yard about 3 weeks ago.  Two weeks ago I saw it 'pacing' and meowing along the back fence, so I went to investigate - saw nothing.  Then the next morning all was revealed - 3 kittens (2 black, 1 black & white)

Mother cat has since moved the kittens from the back yard to the front yard - we have no fence, so the fear of them getting run over by a car is great.



the smallest kitten - Kitten No. 3
  We have hired a cat trap in the the hope of catching mum & the kittens, so that we can take them to the Animal Welfare League.

The emotional side of me would like to keep one, but the sensible side of me says 'no'.  We had cats many years ago, and don't want to go through that again ;-(
