Summer already !

Here we are, July 2nd, and it's been a while since I was here (again !). I am going to try harder and keep this blog of mine updated ! Since I was last here we have acquired two young kitties, a grey and white male who we called Chile, as we got him when they were rescuing the Chilean miners, and a midnight tortie who we called PepC (a play on words a bit there !). They are good friends and lovely, coming up to 10 months old now. Sadly, very sadly, we lost our last two elderly cats, Chloe and Billy, both 18, who died in February and June 2011 respectively...still getting over the loss of Billy who was a very special cat...you can see their pics on the right hand side of this blog. I will add a pic or two of the youngsters soon :o) I have managed to alter the background of this blog, and deleted a few old bits and pieces, in the hope that I will be able to add some new things, I have been trying to get into stamping more, and have bought some distress inks which I hope to play with soon. I have lots of ideas and good intentions but actually getting to put them into practice is another matter. I think if I stayed up all night I would get more done than I do during the day..don't know exactly why that is, but I seem to function much better at night ! Anyway, I have decided to have a stall in our village fete on July 8th, so must get cracking...I'm beginning to wonder if I have made the right decision....
