Good afternoon peeps, here I am blogging and it's so miserable and wet out there it's enough to persuade me to hibernate!  I'm having lots of trouble trying to make cards or even get onto the 'puter just lately.  Apart from the system playing up - I've recently lost both printers off the laptop (thank goodness for the maestro 'cos he put it right for me!), I've just lost another follower (because of blogger) so I'm lookin' a right Billie No Mates!  If anyone thinks I've 'unfollowed' them, it's not true - please contact me to let me know and I'll re-follow just like I did for Mrs A.  Oh and Biscuit has decided to be a 'mummy's boy', he insists on lying across my desk - or across my chest if I let him.  He also likes sitting draped over my shoulders - and his favourite place to play with his toys is ... wait for it ...  in the bath (empty of course) - boy have we been adopted by one weird cat this time!
