Has the summer been and gone ?

Well, in the past few months it's been a bit up and down here with a few health issues in the family. I'm not sure what to say about the weather we've been having, it was hot in March, then almost like winter again, and then a selection of seasons, sometimes four in one day (there's a song there somewhere !).  We are experiencing really heavy downpours at the moment, interspersed with bouts of intense sunshine, but it also feels autumnal in the morning and evening and I think tonight the temperature is expected to drop to an all time low.  Weird climate that's for sure.  I've been buying more craft stuff (naturally) and having a go as and when, and have been brave enough to send my cards in to a couple of blogs, namely Little Claire (who I love and am a club member) and Hobby Art, I love their stamps too and enjoy watching Jenny Mayes demoing, she makes it all look so easy !  Anyway, I'm pleased to say both sites have published my cards on their respective blogs, so that spurs me on no end.  I will at some point add the cards in question to this blog too.  All our 4 cats are doing ok, although one of the youngest, Minnie, injured her leg 3 weeks ago and has been on lots of anti-biotics and anti-inflammatory drugs, and it looks like she has got back to full health now, thank goodness.  She is just over one year old, as is Marmite our little black kittie, she's a real sweetie.  Our other two are Chile and PepC, who now look a bit different to the cover photo as they are both just coming up to two years old.  Chile is my "baby boy", a gorgeous cuddly cat, and PepC is a real loon, she's goes scatty all the time, and is often called Loopy-Lou !  They are all lovely though and I will add some up to date pictures of them soon.  I would love to be able to sit here all day doing nothing but this and making cards, but then nothing else would get done, hence the big gaps in communication !  It's nice to come back and leave a few notes though, and on that happy note I will take my leave for now, but hopefully will be back sooner than I was last time (if that makes sense !).
