Then I had that silly fall which has really knocked me for 6 (and there was me thinking I had LOTS of padding on my backside!!)
And then yesterday was a real bad day - last October whilst out walking we came across a little cat in the hedge. It followed us over a mile back to our house which surpised us as we're used to ferral cats living in the fields around us and over the year have fed lots of them and with the exception of one, none have been trusting. It had no collar and we thought someone had just dumped it on the country lane. We rang the local paper and kept a look out in the village to see if anyone had lost a cat but nothing.
It's been a house guest coming and going as it pleases ever since. Was an affectionate little thing and beloved husband loved it to bits. It used to jump up on his tummy and nuzzle into his chin!
On Thursday we bought a carrier and made an appointment to take it to the vet as we thought it was likely to stay with us now and we wanted to get 'her' checked out. At the vets it was discovered it was in fact a 'Him' and it was chipped. The vet contacted the owner and left a message. Cat came home.
At 6pm last night my husband was treated to a telephone call tirade of verbal abuse from the cat owner (who incidentally lives across the fields) who ranted on about why we didn't take it to a vet sooner etc etc etc.
The more he tried to explain the worse this lunatic woman got. Eventually he got her address from her and he drove (our) little loving cat back to it's awful owner. He was so upset last night and we're both really sad today cos we'd become really attached to her (him) waking us up howling outside the windown at 6.15am cos she (he) wanted feeding and we've really missed her (him) today whilst we've been here in the office. Friday 13th indeed.
Now I've poured out all my news I have a card to share - have made a few clean and simple cards the last few days (mainly because I can't get comfy after the fall!) - and here's one that I have left without a sentiment until I decide wedding? or anniversary? or thank you? etc etc!
I used white pearlised card and the stamp is a Viva Decor one which I embossed with Ultra Fine WOW pale gold embossing powder.
The metal button is from my Mum's button box - and it came from a short very tailored jacket (similar to the shrugs that are about today) that was a wedding outfit - I remember her wearing the dress and jacket - would have been in the mid sixties - she looked so chic and stylish complete with her stilletos, matching handbag and leather gloves- and of course her 24"waist!
I threaded some broad white satin ribbon through the shank at the back (with some difficulty!!LOL)
