Jazz is progressing well - he does, however, keep chewing and trying to pull his stitches out!
Some sad news about Shadow; when my neighbour took him to the vets to check if the splint had helped to keep the plate and pins in place, it was found it hadn't. Because his leg bones are very thin and fragile, no further surgery/pinning could be attempted and the decision was made to amputate his leg. This was carried out on Monday afternoon and by the evening he was back home. Animals are very adaptable and by yesterday evening, he was able to stand, sit down and walk. He is lovely and it really is a great shame that this happened to such a young cat.
Richard has a few days off this week, so more gardening and socialising. Had dinner with friends last night - nice to sit back in the week and catch up with each other. We started off the evening with some fizz in the garden - so warm (the weather that is, not the fizz) it really was just like a summer's evening.
I had some lovely news yesterday. I have been 'drawn from the hat' by Cory of Coryographies and have won one of her beautiful bookcase necklaces and a pair of teapot earrings. I thought they were both lovely when I entered the draw and to have been picked a winner is brilliant. Thank you Cory. The post hasn't arrived yet, but I will put a pic of them on my next blog post. Do have a look at Cory's work - is is really lovely.
A mini-ish post today - thank you everyone who posted on my Handmade Monday blog for your comments and pussy-cat good wishes. Don't forget to come back and read a fellow-crafting blogger's post on Friday. It's a good one and of interest to all of us in business. I am off to finish the guest post I am writing and I will add a link to that as soon as I have posted it and it is published - thank you Lesley, it will be with you very soon.
Enjoy the sun everyone
