Hello everyone

Another beautiful sunny day - how lucky we are to have them at this time of year.  Hope the Easter weekend is good as we have family with us on one day and spending the day with friends on another.  Around this we will be putting up a new shed and planting, planting, planting.

I have done very little work this week, apart from a million and one emails and spreadsheet work.  I want someone to tell me how we existed before emails and if our internet connection goes down, which sometimes it does, I worry because I am out of communication with the rest of the world?  The telephone almost seems defunct because of emails and text messages.  Letters?  Good grief, what are they?  Isn't it odd how something that seems rather unusual when first introduced becomes something we cannot exist without?

Many years ago I remember thinking that 5.25" floppy discs would never, ever be replaced by its 3.5" relative.  Now?  Who knows what the next type of computer storage will be.  Look how small and light computers themselves have become.  If someone had told me when I first began using them (and they took up a whole room for storage and the equipment then) that one day I would use a computer that would easily fit into my handbag, I do think I would have thought they had escaped from somewhere.

This coming week means back to working on future events, makes for those events and catching up on everything else that got left behind last week.  No photographs of makes this week, but I am sure you will love the following two pics of my current foster kittens: Nancy the long-haired kitten (she has a tiny black spot under her chin which you can just about see in the photograph) and Nellie the short-haired one.  They will be nine-weeks-old on Tuesday and are absolutely gorgeous.  I hope they get a new home soon, although it is always hard to part with the kittens I foster.

Have a great week everyone and I hope you have a lovely Easter too.  Don't forget to drop in on the Handmade Monday bloggers to see what they have been doing this week.



  1. Only 20 years' ago who'd have thought we'd all be 'talking' to so many like minded people and swapping pictures and patterns and things without leaving home! No chatting over the garden fence needed now!

  2. It's amazing how much technology has changed in such a short space of time. Your little kitties are adorable. A huge thank you for the detailed comment you've left on my blog, I really appreciate it *hugs*

  3. My children think it's hilarious when I tell them that we had 1 very basic computer in the whole school when I was their age!

  4. It really is amazing how much technology has moved on, when I got my first computer I had a the whole set of "The Encyclopaedia Britannica" on a set of 'floppy' discs, I thought they were the bee's knees :) now we have the internet and google :)
    Have a great week and good luck with the re homing.

  5. Your little foster kittens are so cute. How will you ever be able to give them up?

    When I was doing computer studies at school in the middle 80's, we had a class visit to the local council office to look at their computers. They were each the size of a large wardrobe and their data was on large reals of tape.

    I remember when the CD first came out. We all thought nothing could improve that - twenty or so years later and they're practically obsolete having been replaced by mp3's...

    I feel so old !!!!!!! xx

  6. Awwww I love your kittens. I would love to foster kittens but I would never be able to give them up. xx

  7. I loved the story about the computer. But I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful pictures of your foster kitties. They are so cute!


Thank you for your comment - it is always lovely to have feedback and I hope you enjoyed my post.
