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.
OK, I know it's still only Halloween - but Yuletide will be here before we know it, so I've launched my Festive Raffle. The prize is this fantastic Fairy Castle. It took me two weeks to make and was priced at £185. But for just 50p it could be yours!
I'll be selling tickets at my stall from now until the week before Christmas, at 50p per ticket or £2 for five tickets. So stop by and have a look at the castle in real life, and picture in your mind just how good it would look on your windowsill.
Also on my stall at the moment are lots of other lovely items just waiting for a new owner (you can also see them on my shop page). Some seasonal items are also now available.
