Rupert perched on the window ledge making sure he's seen as it's nearly time for the last supper.
Try watching tv with this staring at you. lol

And another pair of socks finished, these are the one's made with the car boot sock wool at the cost of just £1.00.
Also, I'm so pleased to announce that my Grandson who visited briefly on Friday saw the socks and said that he would love some for padding around indoors.  Whoopeee, at last someone likes my socks.
I've offered to make them for other members of the family but they have all politely declined so I'm over the moon that he likes them.

It's not easy playing scrabble when you can't get to the keyboard.....

I thought some of my followers, particularly those not from u.k. would like to see the place where I live.
I count myself very lucky to have been born and lived in such a beautiful place all of my life and visited all of those shown here.

The last couple of days have been miserable and wet and so all of the moggies are a tad fed up.

So, lets make them some tents.

One each end of the sofa, that will keep them happy, good ambush places...
Never mind if we need the throws, we'll put on extra jumpers. lol
On the knitting front, I have just completed a pair of socks for Tom

Bit multi coloured but he doesn't mind.
I found the yarn below at the car boot the other week, 2 skeins for £2.00.
These 2 skeins will make a 2 pairs of socks.

When I got home and looked it up the retail price for this yarn is  £15.00 per 100gms
Knock me down with a feather, I would never pay this much for 100 gms of yarn.
I thought it looked so pretty but as I'm knitting it up it's not looking so nice.

It will do though for the winter, keep my ice lolly feet warm.

Finally here's Rupert showing off his £1.00 car boot bargain.
The cat's are supposed to rub themselves on it but he's the only one whose shown interest and that's only as a picture frame...

We recieve a monthly magazine through the door and inside there are usually some interesting articles.
I thought this was very interesting and Mr.Ratty looks so cute in his harness.

Our little car is not new by any means but it gets us from A to B.
The front seats were past their best and needed some new covers.
Luckily last week we found what we were looking for and they cost just £1.00, yes honestly, new,still in the nice plastic zip bag (this was as good as the covers, I'm sure there's a use for this lovely bag somewhere. lol)

Ta Da.... not everyones choice and I'm sure the neighbours think we've finally tipped over but we love them and they serve the purpose.

Sun's out, and it looks like it will be good again tomorrow, roll on the car boot, let's see what the next quirky thing is I can find, ha ha.

3 holer, some 1 holers + lilac frilly one.

some more bits for the coral reef, these little bobbles are going to be clustered together and in my mind I have the idea of a padded bit to represent a rock that I shall arrange them on.

After looking coral reef up on google I noticed that some of the bobbles have more than one hole, so voila, I am now making a 3 holer.

 This ruffly bit is going to get some pearls on it, I can't resist pearls on everything.

Even wearing some today, looks a bit posh but have got to the stage where I don't care.

And then there's this to contend with, spread out all along the desk where I am working, she's even got the cheek to burp every time I brush her fur.
Mmmmmm, maybe I ought to find somewhere else to work, she'd like that. lol
