Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining...

Hi folks...the weather's been awful for the past 2 days...not a smidgen of blue sky in sight...nothing but dark ominous clouds and lots of rain but every cloud has a silver lining as they say. Being marooned in the cubbyhole has meant I've been cracking on with the crafty list and am looking forward to the next project...a 3 Page Simply Homemade magazine commission for Fiskars using the new Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabrics...a chance for Mr Fuse and Mr Janome to get together and create some magic...well that's the plan...

And after yet another day of 3 soggy doggy strolls yesterday I'm looking forward to handing that honour over to hubby today and heading off to The Papeterie for a fun "Christmas With Tim Holtz" day at Kath's Klub...unfortunately the man himself won't be making an appearance...those lovely crafty folks will just have to settle for ME and a day indoors playing with lots of Tim's fabulous products.
I know you are waiting with bated breath for the results of the Furry Boy's first Weigh-In at Weight Watchers Club yesterday...crikey I could hardly eyes were tightly closed as he stepped on to the scales...I was willing those numbers to be less than a week ago and woohooo fabulous news...he's managed to lose 0.6KG (1.23 lbs) in a 11.54% of his target weight loss...well done Buddy...
There was much hooping and a-hollering from the receptionist...the vet nurse and this proud Momma...the Furry Boy didn't seem to share our excitement...until he heard the magic words "well Buddy I think that deserves a special treat"...resulting in a lightning bolt dash to launch himself at the vet nurse...thankfully she still has all her fingers intact and I swear it never touched the sides. It looks like we're right on track with the diet...I'm looking forward to next Friday's hot date with the scales and no doubt The Furry Boy will be listening out for those magic words again.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
