Working Holiday

well, Tony's on holiday this week so as usual it means a holiday working at home doing all the jobs that he never has time for during the year, thank goodness that he's so good at DIY.

For the last two months we have been building a pond and now it's almost finished apart from getting the water to clear which has been looking like something out of a horror movie.

This morning, I found Chester our cat looking with a glint in his eye at the fish that are almost visible once more. Having checked them out he decided that they were no threat to him, he's a bit of a coward, and promptly settled down to treating the pond as his own personal watering hole.

So far he's not fallen in but I don't believe for one minute that it's not going to happen. There's loads to do in the garden, we're fencing off the top part near to the house so that we can let Rachel's cats outside. She came back to live with us in February with three cats in tow and they have never been outside. As ours is a busy road, we're trying to make sure that when they do go out they are completely safe, just seems a big job at the moment.

Apart from a little knitting and making a card or two, that's all to report for now.
