Mum and I did venture to a local pub for some lunch. Her first time out since being ill. Despite a roaring fire in the pub it was quite cold so we didn't hang about.
I didn't have an Easter egg this year but did find some mini eggs lurking in the cupboard. I did need a few treats between decluttering.
I managed some sewing today. March HipBee block for Rachel. I had a slight fabric quantity malfunction so I can only show you a WIP but hopefully Rachel will like how this is shaping up.
The block is called Puss in the Corner - which is quite topical today. This morning I went to put something in the boot of my car and this cat came bounding up to greet me. The neighbourhood cats are not very friendly. In fact some look half feral and I'd not want to go anywhere near anyway. Even when I used to feed my neighbours cats they would not come near me if they saw me outside the neighbours house.
This cat was super friendly...um too friendly as when I went back to the house it tried to get in. It then started scratching the door and mewing. I managed to get outside the house again (I tried to gently coax the cat out of the way with a nearby broom only it thought that was a fine game and I was playing.) to go to the shops but it apparently cried all the time I'd gone and when I came back again it ran out to greet me and then tried to get in the house and even worked out how to open the door handle - meaning we had to lock the door. The cat then proceeded to try all the windows and alternated between them and the back porch until it eventually got bored and went away.
She looks fairly young and she isn't a bit timid and looks well looked after and she is super cute. But as a bird watcher and gardener, with a mother and other half not keen on cats I dare not encourage her.
I hope you had a lovely Easter and it warms up soon. During the decluttering I saw all my lovely summer clothes. I so want to be wearing them!
