  9. Looks like you had a lovely day out. I just don't like it when it's so hot good job it never lasts too long in the UK. Lovely cat, animals seem to do really well when they can't see. We had a dog that had gone blind and it was some time before we knew for sure. Have a great woyww, Angela x 19

  18. Love your card and your desk with a view of the outdoors and a relaxing space!!

  19. Happy Belated WOYWW. It is cooler now, so I feel free to spend time in my craft room rather than outside. Lovely photos from your day out - and the cat is gorgeous (I love all cats!). I promised myself that I would start making Xmas cards this month - and I will get at least one done this weekend. It always feels weird to get my Xmas stash out of the spare room when it is summer - but every year I wish I had started earlier. Ali x #30

  20. Look at your beautifully arranged and stored paintbrushes, that's clever! Glad that you're able to make the best of the warm, even if it did get too hot! Lovely pics.

  21. What a fun and sparkley snowman! Very cute!
