Walking The Cat

Salut!
How are you liking the new blog design? It's still a work in progress, but I think it's going to be super pretty when it's done!
Today, Dan and I decided to kill two birds with one stone and take some photos for the blog whilst we were taking Hemingway for a walk in the garden. He's grown so much! Remember when we brought him home for the first time? I know, I am a crazy cat-lady!
The light outside had that perfect moody-but-gentle Autumnal quality. Yes, I know, it's pretty weird to walk your cat, but I've seen far weirder animals on leashes. (Ferret on a leash, goat on a leash, teacup pig on a leash, anyone?) We live in London, and after reading that the life expectancy of an outdoor cat in London is 2 years, we decided that taking the cat out on a harness was our best bet. At least for now.

Hemingway doesn't mind being on the leash at all. He doesn't exactly enjoy it when he is in the house, but once we're outside, he is too busy sniffing things and exploring to mind. This is our very overgrown garden!

Over the summer, we didn't use the garden as much as we anticipated, and when we looked out of the window one day, the whole patio had been overrun with ivy and creepers. The tiny little bush in the middle had turned into an enormous tree, and the garden was like a jungle. I'd love to sort the garden out so that next spring and summer we can have some little barbecues and parties. Maybe that should be our next project!
My hair is finally growing, and people have been noticing how long it is getting. I can put it in a bun now, for the first time since I was about 17, I think! Exciting stuff. It may sound mundane, but as someone who has had short hair for roughly five years, it's lovely to be able to swish my hair again! I'm sure that before long, I'll crave my neat little bob again. Such is life!
Owl Brooch Regarding accessories, I've hit a bit of a wall recently! I almost always wear a necklace, and it's usually a fairly dainty one. Much as I love my necklaces, I think it is time to branch out. Or to 'brooch out'. Ohoho. This little owl brooch is from Cath Kidston. I got it in a lovely set from one of my ex-colleagues, last Christmas. It came with a gnome and a toadstool. I'm sure they'll make an appearance at some point, if I keep trying out this whole brooch thing.

Hemingway saw a little insect that needed to be chased! He goes quite well with my green tights, doesn't he? Who needs accessories with a cat as majestic as this?
Have you ever seen someone walking a strange animal on a leash? Do you think I'm weird for walking my cat?
