Thank you so much to everyone for your comments and suggestions on my last post. There must be something wrong with my eyesight, I think! The name of the print on the pyjama bottoms (I can't believe I've just written that!) is, of course, Fantastic Mr Fox! A special well done to Morwenna at Bluebells & Butterflies who got the actual name right in her comment!
Most people thought the same, too - I thought that Kary from My Farmhouse Kitchen was going to give me back some credibility for a moment....but no, in the end, she too saw Mr Foxy!
I, on the other hand, was quite convinced that it was an Eagle Owl, especially as they're nocturnal birds & associated with sleep! What others (ie. everyone!) sees as the tail, looping behind his back, I saw as two wings, one tucked behind his back & the other gesturing. Oh well, I shall admit defeat & book an appointment at the optician!
China update: I'm falling in love with this girl, she is the dearest dog! Sweet, gentle & calm. Even Alice is learning good manners from her and learning to share her Mum & Dad! She's still our best girl, of course - we've only borrowed China after all, but I will be sorry to see her go! I won't think about that yet , as Natalie has only just landed in Australia!
I have to take a chocolate cake out of the oven now...the smell is just amazing! Luckily it's an order & not for us, or I would be getting ready to dig in - in the manner of Frank Barone from Everybody Loves Raymond !
The bookworm's dream library - I took this picture in Cardiff Castle, among the many I took there. In fact, this was the place where I took most pictures during our holidays. Many of it...
