Kitten Joy!!!

This weekend has been a weekend of kittens, and kitten-related items. My friend Nicole has a million billion (ten) cats at the moment, because one of her 5 existing cats, has had kittens! Because ten cats is a lot of cats, her family is looking for homes for the kittens, and as we've been thinking of getting a cat for a very long time now, we thought that now was a good time to start our family!

Despite the country being declared 'Officially In Drought', it's been raining all week, and apparently it is going to rain next week too. The only positive thing about this torrential downpour is that I get to use my gorgeous umbrella. I call it my Brolly-wood, because the combination of vibrant turquoise, with the rich pink pom-pom edging gives it a very opulent Indian feeling to me, and I can't resist a good pun!

This outfit is quite similar to one I wore a little while back, but I do love those woolen shorts, and I think you'll be seeing a lot more of that tweed jacket this spring!


  

I don't look very excited in this photo, but inside I am bursting with the anticipation of kittens, and the joy at having hair that is exactly the right amount of curly! I wish my hair would be like this without me having to spend an hour curling it. The curls had pretty much fallen out by the time we got to Nicole's house!

At Nicole's we met the adorable kittens and their mummy, but eventually chose this beautiful ginger kitten! We will bring him home in a month, and I am so excited, as is the Dan. We have been discussing names, but haven't come up with anything that's stuck yet. I suppose we've still got a month, but I am so eager to give him a name! He's more adorable than anything, isn't he!? I can't wait to watch him grow up into a big cat and become a feature of our family!!

Rather Dapper.

Why hello there...

A couple of days ago, I put together an outfit entirely comprised of clothes that are at least four years old. Unfortunately, it was rather cold so I had to put on my jacket, but then that looks pretty old too, so I don't think the effect was ruined too much.

I've been really enjoying wearing clothes that I wouldn't be able to wear to work, during the school holidays. I don't really own many 'smart' work outfits, and being a mere trainee, I can't afford to buy beautiful new clothes at the moment, but I do try... Anyway, during the holidays, I relish wearing clothes that are work-inappropriate.
I wore this outfit to check out the new Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford and to purchase some bits and bobs we needed for out home (mundane stuff such as those clips to close food bags... oh my Rock 'n' Roll life...).


I am lucky that Dan will take pictures of me in our garden, and indeed that we have a garden in which we can take pictures! Our next weekend-project is to clear out the weeds and get rid of the broken garden furniture that came with the flat, so that we can spruce the garden up for summer. I would love to be able to eat dinner in the garden, and have people over for barbeques. It is time that I got out of my antisocial rut!
This was the view from our back door. I had to snap this one quickly, before we shut the door and came back inside. We live in a densely populated area and so the garden is kind of cosy, and those clouds just looked so incredibly fluffy!

I hope you are having a lovely spring, and enjoying your weekend!
