I wrote my last post in March. MARCH!!! Honestly, I just don’t know where the time is going. Days blur into each other and I’m clearly struggling to keep up, and finding time to blog just hasn’t seemed like a high priority; at the same time, it’s a really important way for me to keep in touch with my online friends, and to promote my sewing (when I have things other than curtains and blinds to show) so I shall be making a firm and proper effort to get back into the rhythm.
Both the boys have had Birthdays. It doesn’t seem very long ago that they were so little. F is now so tall I have to buy him clothes for a 13-14 year old (and they only just fit) and they are both becoming very ‘grown up’ which I kind of like, as they are great company.F is just about to finish his time at Primary School and in a fitting tribute, his ‘Monster Letter‘ has finally died.I don’t feel very sentimental about it all, really, he’s ready to go and I think Secondary will suit him better anyway, so onwards and upwards on that one.
In the ever on-running saga of our luck with animals, Elvis(eena) the shoulder riding chicken died 😦 Which was sad, especially as it was whilst F was away on a school trip, and she was his chicken.
(I have been MUCH better at blogging on my other blog, if you’re interested, although it’s mostly about chickens at the moment: Rock Cottage Year)
And Tuppence was killed on the lane, which I was absolutely gutted about. She was bringing home a mouse, and was knocked a good two meters through the air after being hit and then left, before someone walking down the road found her body and came and kindly knocked on my door.We still have two guinea pigs, a load of chickens (as I allowed two to hatch out some eggs) and Birdie, the fur ball cat (Tuppence’s sister). I keep making jokes that animals will run in terror when we try to buy/adopt them in future, but the joke becomes less funny each time we lose another beloved pet.
On a plus, I’ve finally started using my Instagram account ( @thelinencat )and can see already that it’ll likely be more active than my blog. I’m a bit crap at the moment, but I’m getting into the swing of it.And there is lots of sewing going on, just not so much photographing and listing….yet.Let’s hope this is the turning of a new leaf and I can keep it up. As above, onwards and upwards 🙂
