*furry?!!*

The prompt over at her space:my space today is 'furry' - find something furry in your space. Now, I'm not too sure my chosen subject fits the brief, being, as she is, hairy, rather than furry, strictly speaking. BUT, she is very photogenic, and I couldn't readily put my hands on anything that was properly furry, so I've allowed myself a little artistic licence today!! Anywhere, here she is, in all her confused glory:

On to other things, and Andrea made today's post over at It's A Creative World - a card-making class which promised to produce a beautiful card in roughly 20 minutes. I put this to the test this afternoon, and can highly recommend it if you need a fab card in a hurry - it was SO easy to do, thanks to Andrea's great instructions, and I'm really pleased with how mine turned out.

We had a slight trauma in the blossom trail household this afternoon - I had taken the girls to meet friends of ours for a pub tea (for the children) after their swimming lesson. There is a smashing pub a short car ride away with a fantastic wooden playground for the children, set in a 1/4 acre field. Just as we were preparing to leave, I asked F where her hearing aid was - not in her ear, it turned out. I then had the somewhat formidable task of combing the field trying to find something not much bigger than a child's little finger!! Anyway, after 25 frantic, yet methodical minutes' searching, I found it, underneath the monkey bars!! I can't tell you how elated I felt - we don't have a spare, and I know there would have been a wait for a replacement. It's amazing how much of a boost you can get from finding something you thought you'd lost.
