Last day of November ... has turned pretty cold here.   it was -3 C this morning and it reached the dizzy warmth of 2C. However two years ago we had plenty of snow by now.

Last Saturday I went to the Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate. I haven't been for a bout 5 years mainly due to lack of frittering money. But as I got a tax rebate a while back I decided I could use a bit of it and splash out on things I don't need.

I bought several pieces of fabric, some yarn,  a Shepherd's Bush x stitch chart and the buttons and fabric which is 18 count so I should be able to stitch it without  squinting too often. It was a good day out and the exhibition  of artists' work was great.

Tia has had a parcel from Soggibottom it was sent before their last flooding. She was going to keep it for Christmas but after a chat to Michele on Monday it was decided that she could open it.  The mouse  is a bit too real looking for my liking :)

 I don't know what the postman thought when  answered the door.
 Tia being careful. She fell off the bed in her excitement last year.

She loves the cheese flavoured biscuits. I haven't managed to get a good photo of her with the mouse yet.  I never have the camera ready at the right time.

Tia is the luckiest cat to receive pressies before Christmas. No wonder she fell off her perch with surprise.
