A little bit of This and That to share...
I've been back at work a week and 2 days now and the holidays are just a sweet memory away. I am missing my little Nikita terribly... I cannot wait to get home in the evenings to shower her with kisses and cuddles. She does get irritated with me during this show of extreme affection and squirms and squeals her way through all the love I pour on her, but I really don't care ;) She's her Mommy's little baby and that's what you get for being such a cute little kitty hey ! LOL
I must share a slight disastrous affair over the weekend. I was helping Kendall colour her hair on Sunday evening and after living without a pet for so long, we just forgot how inquisitive a little kitty can be. Colouring one's hair can be a darn messy affair and as I was squeezing some of the mixture out of the tube, a blob flew into the air and landed on Nikita's WHITE fur, just beneath her eye.
Hell's bells... I was like a madwoman.. I furiously began washing my hands, trying to grab her before she ran off to hide under the bed, hoping and praying that I had got all the mixture OFF my hands, as most of her body is cover in WHITE FUR!!! Forgive me Lord, but my language at that moment was a teeny bit colourful...lol Unfortunately, the damage had already been done! When I wiped under her eye, so the dye sat and stared at me. A tiny blob, but I could have cried !!! Here's a pic to show you what I am referring to. She was not charmed at having her pic taken !
If any of my kitty owner friends out there have any tips on how to remove this dye, please let me know. I somehow think we'll have to wait for it to GROW out.
Perhaps my dear friends on Pinterest may have got a hint, after viewing all my Repins of late...lol). I am soooooo excited to share the news that in October last year we decided to look for a house in a secure complex, as we are feeling a bit cramped in the flat. I long to sit in the sunshine and potter around in a little garden. My dear Mom can also not manage the stairs anymore, so her visits are few and far between which saddens us a great deal, as we love having her around and spoiling her. Well... yesterday I went to sign the papers for the transfer of our new house into my name. It is still in the process of being built and we hope to move in around March/April. Just to give you an idea of what it'll look like, here is a pic of our neighbour's house. In the right hand corner you can see part of our property.
As you can imagine, with all this going on, there has not been much time to blog hop hence my absence of late. I hope my blog friends will forgive me for this ;)
I am trying to make amends and managed to pop around earlier this morning to visit a cute little blog I follow. It is filled with lots of home crafts ideas, caravan and other make-overs and photographs of our beautiful scenery here in the Cape. If you haven't been to visit Bonnie at Living Life Creatively, then you must pop around soon. Pour yourself a cuppa tea and settle down for a leisurely visit. You will not be disappointed. I've just noticed you've joined my blog, thanks so much Bonnie and a very warm welcome to you.
Before I go, I'd like to ask a question that has been on my mind for a while now. As this is essentially a craft blog where I share my handmade creations, is it acceptable (I can't think of another word) to place pics/news of other things going on in one's life, like this post for example or do you think one should create a separate blog for this purpose ? Perhaps one should change the name of one's blog ? That's 3 questions if my math is correct...lol I'd love to hear your thoughts and hopefully this'll help me decide whether I should keep Sharon's Kardz Korner purely for my handmade creations and create a new blog where I share just about anything.
Shew... if you're still here, thank you for sticking with me. This post turned out to be a LOT longer than I had anticipated.
Thanks for popping around today, hugs Sharon x
