Finally! My exams are over! It has been a very stressful week, and I haven’t had a weekend, evening or holiday for the last month – but I’m reasonably happy with how they all went, so that should work out ok:) So that is why I’ve disappeared, I must admit, I missed writing, and I’m glad it’s all over now! On a better note, the weather’s been lovely, we’ve had beautiful sun recently – but with a refreshing breeze. Lunch has turned into revision and a picnic outside, which is a big step up from shivering in a corner:)
Jim has been loving the hot weather and his evenings involve a roll in the sun then a tummy tickle – bliss! However, after about 10 minutes, he has to seek shelter in the shade as his silky, black coat seems to just soak up the heat. He was a bit sick earlier in the week, we think he might have had a bit too much grass after eating a bad shrew. He’s very clever and always seems to know what will make him feel better. There’s been research recently into animals self healing – choosing the right herbs and plants to sort out illnesses. There is a very interesting website from a researcher called Caroline Ingraham. I thought it was quite intriguing!
The flowers are coming up quickly, and my little leeks have been upgraded to the big plant garden. We’ve had a few frosts, so I’m a little worried, but it should be ok.
We recently bought a beanbag chair for the sitting room (sooo comfy), Rosie and Jim agree), but more importantly it came in a HUGE box, big enough for me to crawl into – so you can imagine Rosie’s excitement! Of course, she had to jump on top of it first.
It’s almost summer now, which is always a great time for photos, and nature is at it’s best. I’m hoping to spend some time capturing it a little later in the year, but for now my photography has been focused on cats:)
