A slight obsession with books

Reading and Fibrecrafts



Frodo loves to come into my craft room so he can sit on the windowsill and watch the birds, visiting cats and anything else that moves. We’ve got a lot of bird feeders out there, including one attached to the window.

Frodo200216-01_bI was attempting to get a cat-free photo of some crochet but got sidetracked into taking a couple of photos of Frodo instead.

When I reviewed the photos later, I realised just how badly I need to get out in the garden to get it ready for the coming season. There isn’t as much to do as the last couple of years, but I need to finish emptying the raised beds, and finish moving the one that got halfway before I started my new job back in September. I also need to give the greenhouse a good clean, ready for some seed-sowing.

Now that I’m working full-time, I’m going to have to cut down on the amount of things that I grow as I just won’t have time to look after them. I’m thinking of installing some irrigation to save some time. I have all the bits in the shed from when it was set up a few years ago, so it should be doable.

Hopefully the next garden photos will look a bit less messy.

  1. cats just have to be part of everything we do, don’t they ^^


    • They certainly do. They have to inspect and sniff everything I handle. I just had to let Frodo sniff my boiled egg that I was doing for my supper. Luckily he didn’t feel the need to lick it LOL


  2. I guess it is the perfect place to hang out. He gets to watch the birds and keep an eye on you πŸ˜‰ Sounds like Spring is coming! Yay!


  3. Frodo is gorgeous! Is he a particular breed?
