What shall I give you first? OK, the unexpected visitor - Pauline its one for you!
Rachel and I went for our early morning walk as usual, when we got back we were talking and she moved nearer to the lounge area, "Mum the cat has pooped on the carpet". Lovely I thought, when we looked it wasn't just one bit but lots all along the skirting. On closer inspection I knew at once it wasn't cat but hedgehog poop!! She went, I cleared up and Peter and I had a quick look round the lounge and couldn't see anything. He went to work whilst I washed the kitchen and scullery floor, it had been in there too, I also found a few spines confirming yes it was a hedgehog. I then did a closer look round the lounge and found this fella curled up fast asleep behind a fire screen which I keep in the corner
I panicked, how do I deal with this, I couldn't bring myself to pick it up so I called Peter and made him come back home to remove it. Luckily he only works 2 miles from home and had gone on the Harley so he popped back and removed it to the garden.
Here it is all curled up in a ball. I left it for 5 minutes and when I went back it had gone. I can only assume that it wandered in last evening for the cats food, we do get them in the garden. Just wished it had been a little better house trained
Now the WIP - its a little dress for a colleague of Rachel, they have a baby daughter due at some point this year. I am using some unknown 4ply that I got from the charity shop a while back. The pattern is Little Sister Dress by Tora Froseth. The ten stitch blanket is awaiting Rachel's new car so I can see how big to finish it, as she wants it for the front passenger seat - to keep off the sticky fingers etc of all the kids she carts around. So thats it for today. Off to get my hair done.
