and here goes :)
Poor owl I disturbed him/her last night so am now awake early morning listening to the "payback"!
I am loving that my little black cat has returned after three weeks away (she disappeared whilst we were on holiday and the cats were being looked after by my lovely neighbour as both children away in Europe this summer and therefore not around to help out with cat-sitting duties). I had put up notices, contacted vets, posted on national sites for missing pets and was thinking the worst that a car had knocked her down somewhere. During the last fortnight, I have had so many lovely people come forward with information about cats they have seen, found, sniffer dogs to help search so I have known that there were a lot of eyes out there looking for her. However, yesterday I came downstairs early morning in the dark (it was pouring with rain outside) to see a cat shape sitting at the bottom of the stairs! This was totally out of the ordinary as my cats do not have access to the main house - their room is accessed by a cat flap and the door to the main house is closed at night. At first I thought it was my dark, stripey tabby but then there was a cry and I knew it was her!! She had come in via the cellar vent and had popped the cellar door open somehow to get into the house! I could not quite believe my eyes but I said a big thank you to God and scooped her up in my arms where she just purred and purred. She was amazingly not wet, had obviously been eating well and her coat was lovely and glossy so wherever she has been she has had access to food and shelter. But I am so thankful she is home :)
I am thinking that I cannot quite believe that school children go back to school this week - I do feel for them because quite frankly we have had another rotten 6 weeks of weather here in the UK!! I am keeping my fingers crossed that we have more sunny days in September because August was a wash out!
I am wanting days with more hours in them - there just hasn't been enough time to get everything done and I keep going to bed with a long list that has not diminished enough for my liking!
Now that summer is on the way out I need to get back to blogging again - I've missed all my blogging chums and I just haven't even had time to see what they've been up to so I will be reconnecting and visiting over the next few weeks. I'm really looking forward to it :)
My three goals for September will be:
1) to finish and post a new autumn maths pack on TpT
2) to get back into running/jogging and sign up for a 5k race
3) to finish at least one of my knitting projects currently on the go!
Now I'm off to visit others on the CURRENTLY trail - take care and let me know what you've been up to and your goals for September :)
