I thought I would take a break from card making today and share photographs of other stuff!
We have a new neighbour.....he moved in quietly without any fuss and has become very, very friendly...........
This is Muscovey........the Duck
This exotic creature arrived one evening, not very far from where I live, and he has taken up residence at a nearby watering hole that flows out into the sea. He comes from Mexico, so he is way off track, but he has been with us now for about 2 months and seems very happy, thank you very much. The SSPCA are watching that he is okay, and have said if he shows signs of distress they will remove him, but he seems very happy where he is............I wonder if it's because he lives across from the pub? He is huge, by the way..........I've never seen a duck that size before and in fact I thought he was some type of goose to begin with.
Here is our Jazz doing what comes naturally:
Hogging the fire and panting away, thank you very much. Try and get him to move and you'll never manage it....he loves his place in front of the fire.
To make sure she is not left out, here is one of Bess, on the beach............
It has been a very busy time lately for me, trying to make enough cards for my online shop and for a craft fair that's happening in Buckie in 5 weeks time. Hopefully I will get help to set up on the day.........my grandson is also having a table as he makes jewellery, and it's very good too, if I may say so. Well, I may say so as he is my grandson. Here he is celebrating his 13th Birthday:
What a cake that was!!! He has grown a lot taller since then.....all within one year. Doesn't time fly?
My husband is going to India for a long weekend later this month, and I wish I was going too, but for health reasons that's not possible at the moment. Hi is going to New Dehli and then getting onto a train to Jaipur and then coming back again!! He has always wanted to go on the indian trains and now he has taken the plunge. I know he is going to enjoy himself and that it will also mean that he will have achieved something he has always wanted to do.
He will never have to say his live was average after that trip:
While he is away, I have a friend coming to stay with me whom i have not spent much time with since I have moved back to Scotland, so we have a lot to catch up with. I am really looking forward to that. My friend Christine is also a card maker, so I think you know what we will be doing..........oh! yes! Making a crafty mess!!
A final word for today, and it comes very much from the heart. I know how difficult it is to hang on to things from the past, but moving forward into the unknown just has to be a better deal, even if it is a little bit scarey;
Many Blessings to you all. xx
