I feel so sorry for my hubby. Yesterday he washed both of the cars and they looked fab. In fairness it wouldn't have been hard to make mine look fab - it was filthy dirty ... possibly the worst it has ever been. I had clearly parked it under a tree full of sick birds!
However, he washed them and they shone. He even hoovered the inside.
Today I went out and it rained and rained and I was on muddy country lanes and gravel paths and it looks filthy again. Poor Nigel. I even made a mess inside with a dripping brolly and muddy shoes. Ah well, there are worse things.
And one of them is a poorly cat.
Kira was sick this morning. Nothing unusual really. She goes through spates of eating her breakfast and bringing it up 10 minutes later. The vet has seen her and she seems healthy. No signs of tumours or infections, kidney and liver function fine and she stopped losing weight. So as she was hungry we waited half an hour then gave her new breakfast. That usually does the trick. She bought that back up too.
We didn't give either of them their lunchtime snack (a small cap full of crunchies - and fed her half a meal at tea time and she wasn't even a little hungry. She seems perky and is - as ever - very vocal - but not eating. I am hoping it is just a little bug. though as they don't go outside that is unlikely. I do worry about them - they are my babies.
I have been to Kingston Lacy today - behind the scenes - helping to sew costumes and seeing areas not open to the public. It was great fun and good to meet the rest of the team too.
I have also finished my frames - but not photographed them yet.
I do have new scrapping to share though. It was made with a new collection by Fanette Designs called Deep in the Forest
The page is another for the digital album that is filling up quite nicely
The photo is from Shasta Dam on our first day on holiday. It was magical moment, early int he morning and so quiet - we were the only visitors there.
Today I am thankful for
- new opportunities
- my cats - I just hate it when they are poorly ... they cannot tell you what is wrong.
and I share these - someone sent this to me in an e mail. It was an article from the Mail
King of the camera: Photographer spends ten years capturing incredible sepia portraits of big cats
- Photographer Goran Anastasovski captured the astonishing series of sepia snapshots of the big cats over 10 years
- The 46-year-old documented the behaviour of animals such as lions, tigers and leopards at Skopje Zoo, Macedonia
- He insisted that the photographs show that big cats have a lot of the traits humans value - such as love and bravery
