We don't live the high life do we??

The heading is a little misleading because I did live the high life for just about an hour.  It was amazing, especially for a person who doesn't "do" planes.

Just as we were taking off

That's me in that shadow on the most beautiful day
How proud I was that I did it

In that little dinky toy down there is Richard and David chasing us
ready to pick us up.  It's just a shame they lost us !!!!
I have to say it was an incredible experience and I thank David and Eleanor very much, especially Eleanor as she is a fairly new pilot and she put me so much at ease I could only enjoy the flight.

The next photo is back to our cats again, well Sophie actually.  Why is it, when you put protective blankets on your bed so you don't get hair everywhere, they always want YOUR blanket.

Perhaps if I keep very still, mummy won't notice
We went to see our nephew and family last week and it's always a lot of fun there and you never know what you are going to see or who you are going to have a meal with.  You are always surrounded by dogs, cats and chickens, and these two, bless them, had decided to lay their eggs on the dresser in the outside eating area in a basket of walnuts!!  They didn't care at all that we were eating our meal beside them, (thank goodness it wasn't chicken) they just know they have to be there for days hatching their babies.  How cute are they and so very, very pretty.

Contented, happy bantams

Here are some they prepared earlier

Having fun knitting these hats

I wish I could wear hats, but not having much hair, I just
looked like a boiled egg with a cosy on!!!
I'm sure you must have seen enough by now so I will save the others for another day.  The weather is getting warmer now and hopefully we are going to be able to start our kitchen in a couple of weeks time.  We have to dig out the floor that is there and put down a base (it now has tiles laid on mud) and re-tile.  A horrid, very dirty job but we can't wait to get it done.  We have lost quite a lot of furniture and food due to damp and mildew so bring it on!!!

I will sign off now, take care all my family and friends and remember, spring is just around the corner, so close we can almost smell it.
