We had such a great night! We (was a family effort) took this picture using the tripod and the remote shutter release thingy. Then later on Miss Mouse and I went out guising and she had a brilliant time. It was a lovely night weatherwise which helps a lot! And the Boy has said he might come out with us next year :-).

ding-dong the bells are gonna chime

Today we went to a family wedding. Here's the kids hugging a tree outside the church.

Afterwards we found this other completely autumnally bonkers tree round the other side - red leaves and yellow berries, that's taking autumn colour to a fantastic extreme!

And this is our table at the reception.

Miss Mouse was trying on her outfit for the wedding we're going to tomorrow and asked to have her picture taken (I suspect she was too lazy to go upstairs and look in the mirror). I'm not showing the full-length picture because you'll see all the clutter in the background she looks so cute in this picture.

Hester's normal pose of an evening - sprawled on my legs.

Can't even remember what she was huffy about now, it didn't last! I'd set out some different trousers for her but she decided that zebra-print leggings would be more the thing.

Treated myself to a bunch of flowers to brighten up the kitchen.

Well, not hugging exactly - that would be a bit forward when we haven't been introduced.

It was a gorgeous cold-but-sunny day so on the way up to get the Boy from the school I took some photos.

soaking cones

Thanks to my parents sending cones in the post the next dye experiment begins!

geometry: fair

Spelling: creative.

This followed an argument between the Boy and Miss Mouse about what a cylinder is like. Miss Mouse is adamant that it's not what the Boy drew.

Ridiculous sleep

Can she be comfortable like that? Apparently so! No idea which leg that spare paw belongs to.

coffee and cake

What could be nicer? I enjoyed making Miss Mouse's cake so much last week that I decided to make another. Nobody but me seems to want any. Oh dear *evil grin*.

cat on a cold fence

Cat-proofing next-door hasn't gone exactly as planned..

No, not her!

I intend to plant lots of these next year - I love the varations in colours and the weird foliage. Can you even call it foliage? All the odd spiky bits anyway!

More on this later in the other blog!

It's now just over a year since we got the cats - and we can't remember a time when we didn't make regular detours into the pet-food aisle at the supermarket in search of what now routinely appears on our shopping lists as 'Kitteh noms'!

cat and rabbit

Do I hear an 'awww' from the back? I don't? Weirdo.

Some highlights from a trip up north

As you can see we had beeeeoootiful weather..

.. and again..

.. and an early birthday for Miss Mouse..

.. and Mum and Dad's garden was looking gorgeous as ever. *sigh* didn't want to come home really.

We found some pretty autumn leaves outside and Miss Mouse decided to draw one and 'write notes' about it in her notebook - so proud of her methodology :-D. As you can see she only knows two letters so far!

Not well

Poor little Mouselet had the most awful sickness bug. Don't see her this quiet very often!
