A couple of things i made..

I have been busy this week!!! I made a card yesterday for my hubby's mum's birthday, i thought this picture was so pretty. It's just some lace on the back of it and a couple of buttons and ribbon but it turned out really nicely.

The second things is just a twig sprayed silver with some glitter spray on it and some shop bought ornamental pine cones, it turned out so pretty also. I was worried the cats would dig in the pot as it has dirt in it, but so far they have left it alone!!! I can't have a single real plant in the house, they chew on leaves and dig in the pots so all i have are artificial ones!! I even bought an artificial spiky plant for the bathroom and thought it would be safe, oh no Hagar ( the evil one and naughtiest cat int he world) starts chewing on the ends of it, every day i would go in there and see little bits of chewed plant on the vanity unit, so we had to move it up to a shelf, i mean it was PLASTIC, but he chewed it anyway. I have a lucky bamboo plant in my bedroom, i have to keep it in there cos he chews on it!!!!!!!! If he sneaks in there whilst my back is turned or my arms are full of laundry i have to chase him out of the room as he Will get out from his hiding spot and go chew the plant. I am telling you the naughtiest cat in the world, this morning for instance I'm on the treadmill, now there is a wall right by it with a place he can sit on, so there i am working away on the treadmill and he decides he's going to jump on my back, SCARED THE PEA WADING CRAP OUT OF ME!!!!!!!! i screamed, i know i did cos i heard it over the ipod!!!!!!!!!!scared him too cos he jumped off and ran off!!!!!!! i thought for a moment it was my hubby playing a joke on me til i felt claws......... what on earth he thought he was going to do sitting on my shoulder whilst i ran i do not know, later on he tried it again only this time i saw him out of the corner of my eye....turkey!!!! i said to my hubby later that i could have been screaming for help and he wouldn't have heard a thing!!!!!!! Of course he stuck up for the "baby" ( hes 2 by the way, the cat not my hubby!!) he was trying to encourage me by riding on my shoulder was the excuse he came up with, lets just establish right here that Hagar can do NO wrong in my hubby's eyes!!!!!!!!!

Had a hawk in my garden today as well, he had what looked like a rat in his claws, sitting in one of my trees scoffing it, might have been a kestrel but i think he was too big for that, not sure if you have sparrowhawks over here, i will need to look that up unless someone can tell me? I just hope he wasn't after the birds in my yard, i don't want to have to chase him off as hawks need to eat too, but i don't want him picking my garden to use as his menu!!!!!!!!!!!!

That;s it I'm out of here for the weekends, got a busy busy time set up for this weekend.!!!!!
