Hello everyone

Yes, I know I am as bad as Jill in that I haven't blogged for a while, but sometimes I need her help with certain words and she has been rather busy lately, but, here I am, back at last.

I have been busy too - looking after kittens, well perhaps that is not quite what I do, but I do look at them.  We have four at the moment and Jill has named them: Sage, Basil, Angelica and Sorrel.  She calls them The Herb Gang.  Lillie, re-named Lola, went to her new home on Saturday and it was Jill's first 'on her own' homing event and I am sure it went well.

I had to go to our vet's on Monday because I have something wrong with my eye - the lady vet told me it was Keratitis, an inflammation of my eye which may happen again in the future.  I had to have an injection!  Not my favourite thing and eye-drops twice a day.  Apparently I am very well behaved when these are being put into my eyes - that's what they think, wait until tomorrow!

My pale Badger Boo had to go to the vet's yesterday for an operation.  Hope you are feeling much better today BB.

Now, what else have I been doing - well, lots of wildlife stuff and things like that which I best not write about.

That's me more or less up-to-date, so its off to the garden and Jill is off to the Chelsea Flower Show.

Have a good week everyone

Hi everyone

I can't believe that it is nearly three weeks since my last blog post - well I can because I have just checked the date of the last one which talks about getting back to normal with blog posting.  Rather embarrassing.

The last few weeks have whizzed by and although I seem to have been non-stop busy, looking back not too sure what I have actually achieved.  What's even more embarrassing I had to check my diary to see what I have been up to.

Looking back through my diary I see the last three weeks has been a mix of card order completing, flyer designing, event promotion, stallholder recruitment, celebrating friends' birthdays, pottery sessions, kitten fostering, kitten homing.  These activities have been sprinkled with trips to the dentist!  Certainly not my favourite activity.

I carried out my first solo kitten-homing on Saturday - it may not sound a big deal but it is a big responsibility to ensure everything that the new owner needs to be aware of has been discussed, forms completed and the kitten settled in.  It went well and I am happy to say Lola has settled in really well and I will be able to see her as she grows up because she has moved less than five-minutes walk from where I live.

I managed to get Facebook agreement to merge the Godalming Independent Market with the new Godalming Bazaar page; very pleased about this as it took just over 500 of the existing 'likes' with it.  I have designed/had delivered t-shirts for the supporters to wear on the day of the event; new banners have been produced and advertising is now in local magazines and online.  I have designed a new logo for the Godalming Bazaar and that is now attached to all Facebook postings, all tweets and other documentation.  However, I completely forgot to include it in the t-shirts and on the new banners!

I use two rooms in the Godalming Borough Hall for the events, and had decided a while ago that I would use the smaller of the two as a Food court.  This will accommodate the refreshments people (trying to sort this out for the next event and it seems to be taking a long time) and I have invited lots of local food/drink growers/producers to have a stall - I am disappointed at the lack of responses, even to say now would be nice.  Is it too much to ask for a return phone call or email?  I will keep on trying to get local foodies to take part and so far have two - not a lot, but a good start.  However, if there are any local growers/producers out there in Blog-land who would like to take part in the Godalming Bazaar on 7 June, please get in touch.

Hopefully I am back into the swing of blogging and promise my next post will not be after a gap of 3 weeks and I must visit the other Handmade Monday bloggers - another embarrassing moment as I haven't been to see them recently.

Have a great week everyone - I hope you are all able to enjoy this fabulous weather.
