Three subjects that are totally unrelated, but these are some recent photos on my SD card, so I’m grouping everything together in the same post – strange as it may seem.
First mail . . .
And Christmas is in the air with a surprise parcel from Avis
Avis knows I’d been having a hard time finding some nice xmasy fabric for my traditional tree decoration making. So she did some secret shopping and sent me these two gorgeous pieces of fabric and ribbon. 5m of red and 5m of green with snowflakes on . . . 50cm by bolt width of the small vignettes, and 33 larger vignettes on the other piece (a Makower fabric). What a lovely surprise that was ^^
That’s for the mail . . . now for the melon
This is one of our juicey home-grown melons that we enjoyed last night. Had to cut out a piece first because some garden creature had started enjoying it before us, but that’s understandable – it was yummy!
And kittens . . . are growing so fast! When we first got them, at the age of 10 weeks, they liked sleeping together in this washing-up bowl
In August, they still just about managed to fit in together (photo courtesy of Titia)
Now, aged 4 months . . . the kittens have grown so much, but the bowl hasn’t. Sadly Ducky now has to curl up alone
and Abby gets to sleep in the cat tree
I know her eyes are open, but I assure you, she’s asleep ^^ When I say they’re growing, they’re also putting on weight at an incredible speed – at least Ducky is. Aged 4 months Abby weighs in at 2.3 kilos but Ducky . . . well he tips the scales at 3 kilos !!! Yup, I find it hard to believe and I weighed him several times because I thought my scales must be wrong.
So that’s it: mail, melon and kittens ^^
