Isabelle stayed home Friday as we both have ear infections at the moment and havent been feeling very well either. She enjoyed having the kitten to play with though and distracting her from her sicky feeling. Apart from having to clean up a few little accidents she has been quite good going to the kitty litter. She has quite a few fleas too which we are trying to get rid of with a daily douse of flea powder. I also discovered that Isabelle again has lice eggs and had to comb her hair thoroughly yesterday. I guess I will be doing that for the next 10 days to make sure no head lice appear. We had 6 months of this last year on and off and I was hoping to skip it this year. It drives me insane and hurts Isabelle too having the lice comb go through her hair so much, especially not feeling the best as well. So apart from the sicky germs and the nasty hair bugs everything else has been okay. The knitting has been slow going this week. I have been attempting to knit a cat pj bag for Isabelle and realised after knitting the head that I used the wrong sized needles so I need to reknit that part. I am hoping to get the rest done this week if nothing else pops up and Isabelle will be home tomorrow too so I should get a bit of knitting time to do it. The cabled bolero has the back done and half a front too. I really should start some more on this one too. I also have 5 babies to knit for in the coming months, around June to November so I have been looking through my books trying to knit NEW patterns that I havent tried before. Oh and if anyone has a copy of Alan Dart's gnome pattern I would really love a copy for Amanda. I bought that issue and do you think I can find the pattern, no of course I cant. I know I put it somewhere to knit it at a later date but after searching yesterday, well no luck! If you have a copy you can part with just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I would greatly appreciate it! Speak to you all later and have a wonderful weekend.

Tilly the Kitty
Here is what has been keeping our family busy for the last week. Tilly the kitty arrived via Lachlan's friend. His stepdad found this little munchkin wandering around the city centre on a busy road about to be run over by a car. Fortunately they already had a few cats and their friends wanted a boy kitten, so she came to live with us. Lachlan was excited to have another kitten in the family. Bella seems to like her too and trys to keep licking her face which I dont think Tilly really likes. It is so funny to see Tilly chasing Bella around the house and they both love playing hide and seek in the front room with the couch cushions. She is such a placid friendly kitten too and quite cute.
