This is them discovering some of our vast Playmobil collection. It was hastily tidied off the floor onto the fireside surround when the kittens arrived, but as we discovered, this was a waste of time.....
This particular train wreck was once a fine collection of vintage and modern Playmobil caravans and camper vans.
The Vacation House proved particularly popular, though clearly the wrong size. Missy, as usual, takes pole position and Theo has to leave his bum outside.
But it`s good to share a cuddle....
Finally, a picture of the kittens with their mum, two brothers and other sister, taken when they were about six weeks old. Have you ever seen a grown cat eaten alive? Poor Shimano (that`s mum...she lives in a cycling family) is one very, very thin cat under there. But as you can tell, she makes fabulous fat, sassy kittens.
In the meanwhile, I`m off to the allotment today. Knitting? Spinning? What`s them? All I have to report is one sock completed and half of a giant mohair square I`m knitting for a throw. Well, one third perhaps. I don`t have time to knit, what with kittens, camping, kids off school, working on the allotment and processing the allotment produce for the freezer. I can feel a massive jam making session creeping up as well. (Jelly, for you American types.) And we go to Wales in two and a half weeks time. Summer holiday? Hardest working time of the year for me. I was podding broad beans for the freezer at 11pm last night!
But I will try to work up a very belated post on Woolfest soon. That WAS my summer holiday time this year, folks....most relaxing time I`ve had in ages.
