The Ickle Pickles

If you had asked me a couple of years ago if I was a cat or dog person, I would most definitely have said dog. However that all changed thanks to a cat called Fudge.
Fudge started to visit us in the summer of 2008. We knew he wasn't a stray, but was visiting us because his owners has a new kitten and he felt left out, and we obliged him by giving him abit of attention and fuss. Fudge made us think that having a cat wouldn't be a bad idea and to the delight of my friend who volunteers at the local Cats Protection League we decided to get a cat. Our friend recommended to us, that as we work all day, it may be a good idea to get two cats so that they would keep each other company, so hence we decided to get two cats.

When we visited the Cat shelter, a little black and white cat who the shelter called Molly who we decided we were going to call Kiwi came and greeted us and instantly we fell in love with her. She had a little 3 month old kitten who the shelter called Diddy who we decided to name Willow ( Molly had been abandoned by someone who left her on the road with a can opener and a tin of food along with her kittens, but when she was picked up, only one kitten was left), and as we agreed not to seperate them, we adopted them from the shelter.

We absolutely adore our two little cats. Generally they are well behaved and each melts our hearts everytime we see them.
Now if you ask me if I'm a cat person I'd definitely say I'm a cat person.

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.

Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.

However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
