£$ Today

Am I really old enough to have a son of £$ years old?
Mentally, no!
As my birthday was only 2 weeks ago I was able to use my birthday present from my hubby to make this card for Adam. He has two cats, one black, the other grey tabby and white, hence some of the design choices for the card.

Is it a shape changer?

Yesterday my car looked like this.
Today it looks like this!

Poor old MGB, a well loved car. It made me sad to part with it. I have enjoyed buzzing around in it and it was easy to find in carparks. At 34 years old 'she' is no longer reliable, has to hibernate for the winter to save her paintwork and is worryingly unreliable.

Brother in law's Birthday Card

As we all know it is difficult to choose or make a card for a man, unless they have a hobby and you have the relevant stamps. Well for once I did and I made this card for my bro in law Bob's 65th birthday.
When we spoke to him on the day he was actually going to take one of his home tutored students on a fishing trip!
It's my birthday tomorrow and our youngest, Chris, has already given me this wonderful bunch of flowers. I guessed they were for my birthday, but no wishes came with them, so maybe not!
Chris himself was an early birthday present 29 years ago - his birthday is today!

A Female Hatches

Great news, A female moth had hatched this morning. She's even bigger than the male and a beautiful specimen.
Unfortunately, the male had died already! Perhaps the hot weather meant a shorter life.
Another caterpillar spun its cocoon the day after this female, So keep your fingers crossed that it is a mate for her.
