Warning !!!!

Michelle WILL be going to the allotment this weekend ... and she means business !

I'm appalled to say that I've not yet sown my broadbean, sweetpeas etc ... or potted up my lovely blueberry Christmas present ... or potted up my new fruit trees (or should that be twigs). Basically, I've done nothing, nada, nowt for ages.

I have a new camera - went for the G10 in the end. I'm struggling to get to grips with the dratted thing - it has far too many knobs for such an impatient bunny like me, but I will endeavour to get something in focus over the weekend.

Snow Cat !!

well its more or less been snowing non-stop since Sunday - gorgeous, fluffy, virginal white snow - proper snow ... not that miserable slushy stuff that we usually get. I'm lucky that I've been able to spend most of the week working from home as the roads have been treacherous and there have been several crashes on my usual work route.

The kitten has been mesmerised by the falling snow ... he has been trying to catch the flakes through the window - even Ianto has had a little go. We took them both out ... Ianto's feet had barely touched the snow before he was clawing down the door desperate to reattach himself to the radiator. Loki though looked very at home and happily trotted about sniffing and prancing. His coat is ideal for this weather - he is one year old later this month.
