Mrs Percy

Couldn't resist snatching a few moments to photograph Mrs. Percy, my new poppy! Isn't she pretty?! I thought she was going to be pink, but I'll forgive her that.

So busy at the moment. I'm doing some graphic design work at the moment, producing some large display panels for an exhibition at my local museum. I'm having some very long, tiring days. I washed my hair in the shower a few days ago and had to have a long think as to whether, I'd washed my body! I will be pleased when normal service resumes and I can get all my plants planted out and some DIY done on the house. If all goes to plan today, I can chill out tomorrow!

Before I whizz off, a heartfelt thanks to those that left a comment on my post about the loss of our Ellie. I briefly forgot she was no longer with us yesterday and the realisation she wasn't stung a bit. I'm so grateful for our other five cats, that I can still have fluffy cuddles.

Hugs, Sarah x

Still here

I can't believe I've been absent from blogging for over a month, or I can believe it. The jury's out on that one. My blogging came to a halt when our much loved Ellie died (pictured above) at the age of 12. I think my blogging stopped because I felt I needed to mention it, but it hurt too much to even begin to write a post about it. My wounds are healing but it still makes me so sad when I think of her. Ellie was the one we thought we would have for many more years. She was a wonderful cat and never any trouble. She would now and again give you an impromptu face wash when you picked her up. She would chase sticks, leaves etc, round and round in the garden as you wiggled them, until she made herself giddy. She lays next to Lily in the garden and shares Lily's garden light. I'm sure Lily wouldn't mind one bit.

Long absent hugs, Sarah x
