We've been waiting for some building work to be done in the house for a few weeks and this morning the builder called to say that they could start the work tomorrow........Without a moment of hesitation, my husband agreed, wanting the work to go ahead when an opportunity arose. I had a small nervous breakdown when I heard! However we set to work clearing the lounge and the very large cupboard under the stair and got Rosie booked into the cattery.
An emergency blip, now backblipped as I couldn't find what I had done with the laptop in the chaos of the house. It is one of a pair of tea towels we were given on our recent visit to Vancouver. The Thunderbird is a legendary creature of the Kwakitutl peoples' history and culture, the indigenous people of British Columbia and Vancouver Island.
Our cousin who gave us these tea towels had a heart valve replacement and pacemaker at age 86. She's home from hospital already. She's marvellous.
