WOW ! What a great day.

We went to the Kite Festival in Margate yesterday - it was fantastic, quite magical. The sun was shining, the beach was extremely clean, their was just the right amount of wind and everybody was chilled and enjoying themselves - not what you expect from Margate at all.

This kite was made up of 60 kites at 3m intervals and including the lead kite was 200m long amazing! We got to make a free kite which we took up to the cliffs at Palm Bay to fly and it actually flew really well. The was also a lot of people trying out the kites that they bought at the festival. I can't wait until next year!

As you can see Jasper is getting a lot bigger. He is allowed out in the garden now, so he spends much of it running at full speed around and around eventually trying to climb the tree quite unsuccessfully luckily!
The weather is nice at the moment but I just cannot get warm I don't know what that is all about maybe I'm coming down with something - hope not, as it is the kite festival in Margate at the weekend which I am looking forward to going to see.

Feeling colouful

This is a photo of a little area I have found for myself in my house. I have set up a table for my sewing machine and various other crafts. It is quite nice to have everything in one place.
I have started rummaging through charity shops for bits and pieces. I got a large jar of buttons for £1.00 the other day which I separated into different colours they look quite decorative on my window sill. I also paid 20p for some knitting needles and £1.00 for a bag of wool not sure what to knit yet but it gives me something to ponder on.

This is our new cat Jasper we got him from the RSPCA for £70 this includes all his jabs, neutering and microchipping. He didn't have a very good start, they thought he was dead when he was bought in but he has survived very well, he still has a poorly eye but hopefully that will get better with time. He is very affectionate and soppy. My five year old loves him and spends most of his time playing cars with him. Its quite nice having a young cat in the house again as our other cat is nine and prefers to spend most of her time snoring.

Anyway if anybody is interested the Time and Space shop in Broadstairs is having Storm Troopers and Bob Afet (think i spelt that wrong) visiting on Saturday morning, my little-un is counting down the days, I will post the pictures next week.
