In my last blog entry I wrote about the little kitten we'd adopted. We eventually named her Cobweb. Midsummer NIght's Dream is one of my favourite plays and Cobweb is one of Titania's fairy servants.
Our Cobweb is getting quite big now, and certainly isn't anyone's servant - if anything, we're her servants!
Other news - I was in Altinkum, Turkey at the start of this month for a holiday and this lovely good natured street dog camped herself outside our accommodation, Mutlu Apart Otel. Several of the guests, including me and my friends, were feeding her. After a few days we realised we couldn't leave her behind to starve on the streets after we'd gone home. So my friend Dawn agreed to adopt her.
She named the dog Mutlu (in Turkish it means Happy) and set things in motion. Before we flew home, Dawn had taken her to the vet to be microchipped, wormed, be fitted with a flea and tick collar, have a rabies shot and have blood tests. She was given the all clear health-wise, so is now in a boarding kennel in Altinkum, where she will stay for her quarantine, and at the end of the year she will be transported to the UK.
This all costs money, so to help out I'm raffling one of my doggy soap dishes. If you'd like to buy a £1 ticket, please contact me for information via the Contact page.
Yesterday I was at my usual stint at Beccles Farmers' Market. Since Christmas sales have been a bit quiet, so I was delighted this time that things seem to be back to normal.
After the market, a couple came to pick up a jug and goblets set they'd ordered from me back in January (see picture). They actually had 6 goblets but I didn't want the picture to look crowded!
Then I had to deliver two cat soap dishes and a doggy soap dish to a lady in Great Yarmouth. She'd bought a cat dish last week at a craft fair there and had belatedly decided she wanted more!
Then my daughter-in-law, Diane, (up for a visit with my son) said she'd like a doggy soap dish for her grandmother, and bought the last one I had in stock.
So, with those four things, I had quite a good day yesterday.
Then this morning whilst checking my emails, I found that I'd won £10 on the Lottery. As my luck seemed to be in, I bought an online instant win ticket and won another £2!
I could do with more days like that!
