If we took a holiday

We have just returned from a fortnight in the sun and I could do with a week off, it's exhausting doing nothing.

Before we went I should have spent the day before I left packing but I took a couple of hours out to make a travel wallet for our holiday documents.

  During my time away whilst hubby and the boys lived in the water, I spent lots of time sitting still and relaxing mainly reading

 and crochet, my holiday activity.  

This is going to be a scarf; it is the pattern Gigi by Amanda Perkins from Ravelry.

Well back to reality with a bump, but I do love this next season best of all and there is a lot to look forward to. 
My most exciting bit of news is we are getting a new member of the household, he is my 40th Birthday present (which is coming up in December) meet Oskar.

He is a Silver Tabby Siberian Kitten and I am in love.
We spent an couple of hours with Oskar and his mummy just before our holidays he will be ready to come live with us sometime in September after his last set of jabs and I am so excited.

I am a cat lover and have one already but I am quite allergic to them.  This breed is known to be somewhat hypo-allergenic which is what attracted me to the breed to start with and after a couple of hours with Oskar and his mum I was overjoyed to have no reaction whatsoever (I usually flare up within minutes).
By the time I met him, allergy or not I was already smitten, how could I not be?

Back Soon

I love silver tabbies and Oskar is just perfect. I hope he settles in and look forward to hearing all about his adventures.

Love your holiday pouch too, very pretty.
