Tea for Two

These cats I found having a really good natter and enjoying tea for two on one of these sunny Autumn days. I could not help over hearing a Little of there conversation, ones Kittens had been being very naughty and messing about with her knitting. The other cat had much sympathy and was very glad her Kittens had left home and told great tales of far flung places she gets letters and postcards telling her about great tasting mice from all corners of the world.
Little Mr Robin who has been flitting around the garden with Mrs Robin enjoying all my digging for my raised beds, is really hoping to for a little crumb of the wonderful cupcakes. I do hope the cats just share a little with him and give a piece with pink icing on to take back for Mrs Robin. Especially as I have not been doing any digging as I have been feeling a little poorly.

Captain Rupert has been looking after me very well, while I have not been very well, this last week. I need to catch up on blogs and I know there are a few thank yous in order

Hi Joanna,
The Gallery was fascinating.
There is a Potter Trail to follow.
Hill Top is a must too.
The John Ruskin Centre was also very interesting.

Hi, I love the new picture, it's so sweet, and I always enjoy the little story with your pictures.xx

Joanna said...

Thank you for saying you enjoy the story with the pictures, it gives me lots of encouragement for more. I was not sure if it was a good thing or not but I always have little stories going on and ideas in my head.

K did wonder what an earth I was talking about asking him what type of mice dishes do you think cats eat around the world.

Hello Joanna!

You should cover yourself in pink icing and stay in bed. It's the best! Get well soon! :-)*

Hi Joanna, I really do love your pictures, this one especially. You have captured many of my favourite things (a robin, the sweetest bird ever, cats, stripy cornishware, spotty plates, very sickly cupcakes and jammie dodgers!). It is lovely to pen the little stories with the pictures, you definitely must keep doing this. I hope you are feeling better now, I thought you had been quiet of late. Louise x
