End of an Era.....

Sadly on Saturday, we lost our last beloved cat , Sapphire (a.k.a Woo).
She was 17 years old and had lived with us since we homed her from Bury Stray Cat Fund at just 6 months old. Sapphire was most definitely a pampered lap cat and our home and lives seem very empty without her today.
Take care little Woo, we miss you x x x x

Stupid architect

Whoever designed this spectator area at Stow Leisure Centre should be struck off. Between the spectator area and the main pool is a HUGE decorative wall meaning you cannot spectate your children in their lessons.

We came by bus today bringing with us 'Olivia' from Rainbows. Luckily I didn't have to pay for her too!

It grew!

Remember the strange escaping bulb that was trying to escape from it's pot at the end of last year? Well........

It grew into a beautiful if slightly short hyacinth!
It smells gorgeous and reminds me of my first class at primary school all those years ago!

Remember ??

....the 50 plus toilet and kitchen roll tubes that Pickle was frantically collecting? Well her first masterpiece has been created!

Can you tell what it is yet? No?

It's a shaker. With tin foil. Tissue paper....and flowers!

Only another 49 to go.....and still collecting!

Merry Christmas....

Wishing everyone in Blog Land a very Happy Christmas.

We had a different Christmas to the one we hoped for as we have had a poorly Pickle for the last couple of days which meant Picklesgrandma and Picklesgrandad could not come to stay and had to do a very last minute shop for food on Christmas Eve.
But despite another 4am change of bedcovers on Pickle's bed we did have a very nice day. Especially Picklesdad who got to build a pyramid and me who got a new iPhone toy!

Happy Christmas from Picklessister too!

This is normal.....

isn't it?

Surely every Mother, if they were to investigate the bottom of their 6 year old daughter's wardrobe would find a plastic box, containing over 50 empty toilet roll tubes?

This doesn't make Pickle 'unusual' in anyway does it?

Remember back in August when we had the mystery plant growning in the garden and we thought it may be a marrow or a courgette? Then we picked it because we thought it was a funny shaped marrow?
Well THIS is what it was, A PUMPKIN and it made it all the way to Halloween to become this beauty!
