Sunday afternoon, the weather is grey and dreary. There's only one thing to do- play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The ball is glass - very heavy and bought as a Christmas decoration years ago. I leave it out all year round though. I threw it onto the bed and Dante had to investigate. He was disappointed that it isn't soft and squishy - no chance of sinking his sizeable fangs into this.

As the dark evenings draw in I like to dip into the bookshelves, choose a book that I haven't read in a while and settle down. Immersed in another world I have the ability to ignore anything going on around me. I do like to read just before I go to sleep too in the more restful atmosphere of the bedroom.

When I was a child most people that I knew had one of these cabinets to house the best and more delicate pieces of china and glass. As with all things they eventually fell out of favour and 'storage units' replaced them. These units were usually made from some type of veneered wood and had absolutely no character whatsoever. My mum was no exception to this fashion fad and so the trusty old china cabinet was slung out. A few years ago I found one of these cabinets in an antique shop for a ridiculously low price and promptly bought it. I needed somewhere to house my ever growing collection of bits and pieces that would keep them all reasonably safe from the antics of two cats and a dog with a very large wafty tail.

My son turned twenty four today so naturally we had a celebration meal and I made him a cake.We all had a lovely time and here is the birthday boy about to blow out the candles. His lovely girlfriend reminded him not to forget to make a wish.

Outside our kitchen window is a magnificent Butterfly Bush.
Throughout the summer we have seen hundreds of winged visitors alighting onto the flowers and sipping the nectar but have been unable to capture any on camera.
But tonight I was rewarded with something very special. Oh what a privilege to have this beautiful creature fly in through the open window. This is my arm that it has settled daintily on. Where are the rest of the family when you need them to take a few pics? Nowhere around of course, so I took these myself.
