All sorts

Those of you interested in samplers might find this link The Sampler Tearoom rather interesting. Thanks Karen!

The lovely Nicola is having a competition of funny sleeping positions for animals and humans! Here is my contribution.

About two years ago we found Meg asleep in the empty fruit bowl. She had never done it before, so we were very surprised.

Note to self - don't leave the fruit bowl empty in future

I think it was only a matter of weeks before we were even more surprised to find Giggsy (who is far bigger than Meg) also asleep in the fruit bowl! (He has always loved being in things - we have photos of him in the washing basket, in the bath, in boxes etc). What a gallah!

Now all the cats are doing it!!

We keep the fruit bowl full now :-) and they haven't shown any further interest in it since these photos were taken.

Tomorrow is our third wedding anniversary. My aim is to do something memorable on each anniversary - on our first anniversary we took some of the family to the beautiful White Swan hotel/restaurant in Greytown, on our second anniversary we had a few days away in Taupo and on our third anniversary we will be... going to Kapiti Island! You might remember in a recent post I said it was somewhere I wanted to go - and luckily I managed to get hold of two permits for the 21st (the permits are the way the conservation department control the flow of visitors to the island, to protect it). I'm so excited! Hopefully I'll get some good photos to share with you (the weather was gorgeous today and with any luck it will stick around for tomorrow).
