Well as you know things have been very busy here at the mouse house recently and hopefully now have calmed down so that some semblance of normality resumes .... ok I am not that normal with a name like mouse hahahahah ;)

I have to report to the chickens loyal fan club that the girls (Barbara and Margaret) have gone to their posh new home last Sunday (photos later)..... I spent a lot of time trying to convince them to smile for you all .... I had them sat on my knees and at the side of me and I hope you like what I managed to take ..lol ... just wish I had a cushion as the derrière went numb hahahaha .
Mr Postie was good to me this week as well, as I received a chart from a fellow blogger Jenny from http://onestitchcloser.blogspot.com/ sent me Autumn Pumpkins Welcome from the Sweetheart Tree complete with special little nibbles from her parrot :) a lovely long letter from DJ too and I also received my secret pen pal note *waving small paw at you .. thanks for the tea and the kind offer too ... may just take you up on that ..lol ;) mine was sent off as well and I hope she may have got it by now ..... Parsley organised this and has done a lovely job :) I just love getting proper mail :0
Niina my lovely friend has been very naughty and enabled me into buying some more stash hhahahh ... she sent me a link...http://www.wasatchneedlecraft.com/ to a lovely shop with a sale on and also another 20% off on top .... sooo DD1 saw a chart she would like me to stitch and it went from there ..lol ... when i converted the dollars to pounds I found I was extremely good .. darn it hahahaha ....
