    I got G/N to paint up a couple of those brown plastic plant pots that Tesco are doing for £4 each. It was only using up some left over paint that was lurking in the shed. Then I gave him some red acrylic I had in my paint box and said now paint some hearts on them and job will be a good one. He is quite proud of then what do you think ?

    During a visit to Jay earlier in the year, He had found me a couple of nice interesting logs that I had asked him to look out for. G/N made up the tops for me and Mallory helped me make the bees and ladybird game pieces. Yes its a noughts and crosses game !!!

    The second log became a solitaire table. These were such a hit in our garden this year and they didnt cost any thing to make which was an extra bonus xxx

    awe so glad they are liked I made my guys one exactly the same, same amount of cat nip in it and every thing but they turned their noses up at it. So I thought your guys might like to have a few to test. They make a nice change from mice I thought and are a brill way to use up all the oddments.

    So glad Tuppence was happy with her gift, you just got to hope she dont bat it under the fridge freezer with her other mouse !!!! I told mine they were valued by other cats so Sootz did decide to bat his about a little bit. Would love to send you some Diane but postage is such a pain. I got to make a couple for the Norwegian cats so will get pictures of them. Tim can take them back with him. He will be over again in just over a weeks time

    CC is an expert at mailing things to the US. Although, we wouldn't want NN arrested for pot smuggling...

    Those are adorable NN. Pictures are good. Pictures make me happy (in case you can't already tell that from my facebook activity) ;)

    KATE! More kitty photos. They are so cute. How old are they?

    NN, what is the tale regarding the cool deer etchings?

    I dont want to spend loads on posting and then they are confiscated. It would just be my luck. I sent several home made items to America one Christmas and non of it ever got delivered and it was almost £30 postage, so I was really disappointed.
    Thank you Diane re the pictures It is a big part of my life. I got so many albums on face book I dont know if you got around to looking at them Diane but you are more than welcome to do so. If I havent got my camera with me its cos I dont feel to good and can not be bothered to carry it because I ache to much. I so agree more pictures from Kate would be good.
    I used the board to dull the light from the kitchen window, You know me so well yes there is a little story to it. When G/N renewed my Kitchen work tops There was quite a bit over and it was oak so we stuck it in shed for anything else we could think of using it for. When G/N retired I bought him several little bits and bobs to see if I could tempt him into new hobbies. One of the things was a wood burning kit. So he made me a hot pan stand with a piece of the left over wood put some little felt pads on the bottom corners. and burned a deer and its baby into the top. I love it so much but did get him to put another baby deer the opposite side to balance it up. He has made several for friends and family with different designs but out of them all this first one he made I love the best
