Well if the sound of the rain hammering onto the conservatory roof is anything to go by. One of the kitties wanted to go out.... at the third time of trying he finally went for it.... ran 3 yards to get under the car! Silly boy, he'll no doubt be in soon soaking wet. Oh and don't tell anyone but I've had the heating on!

Well thanks to you all who played last week, beautiful as always. I've cranked up the RPT and he's picked Fabiola email me your details with the challenge number and I'll sort you out your prize.

So if that's the case I have good news because we go on holiday in May! Which is fantastic news.... however looking at the paper it clearly says it isn't. I've got my fingers crossed though that the weather perks up a bit soon. I've got some lovely new shorts I'd like to wear! And on that scary thought I'll stop ;))
