Secret Keeper Summer from the secret keeper pattern by Magic Threads

She is going to reside in the kitchen. If you have seen pictures of my kitchen you will know why she will enjoy being there and fit right in.

Also say hello to

we finally gave up and bought a new one as we were having so much trouble with ink cartridges and other idiosyncrasies.

Tia has been up to her tricks this week. This is the wall paper by the backdoor. I keep telling her she is an indoor cat. However she keeps miaowing at the door and scratching

Needless to say it looks much worse in real life. In the evenings she loves to sit on laps but kneads at our legs so we have little holes. John turned his lap try upside down and this was the result:

Of course if we buy her a beanbag cushion of her own she will have nothing to do with it.
The hostas are really good this year. I think this is because it had been so dry and there wee no slugs or snails. so I thought I better photograph them before they were munched in this rainy spell we are having.

The winter pansies have come into their own

We have been fed up over the last week. When the bill for the allotment arrived we had been charged for the old one John left last year. So we have been uncertain about this one but hopefully it can be sorted out. We have already tasted radish and salad leaves

At the end of the week I join the ranks of those with a zero at the end of their age. I am not sure how I feel about this. Well I do, it's all very depressing. Biddle is far happier he is just thinking about the four c's: cake, chocolate, Chinese food and cricket.
I think I will join him
