Chaos, Cosy Chairs and Cats!


Hope your week's going well so far...it's not too early to start counting down to the weekend yet is it?!

It's been a crazy first week back at work so far and today's antics included the plasterboard ceiling caving in on me and a group of students! Don't worry, no-one was injured and most importantly I saved my cup of tea (JOKE! Well kinda; the students were my priority but I'll confess the tea came a close second LOL!)

So in between ceilings falling down on me, washing plasterboard dust outta my hair and being in the middle of the exam season, I'm not having much time to find to get inky at the moment. It's a good job I'm still playing catch up from half term's creative time :D

Would you believe as much as I love my On My Couch set, this is the first time I've inked up that sweet little kitty?! Oh it looks so comfy on that chair - it definitely won't be the last time he gets stamped though I feel he'll always be a black cat because he reminds me so much of my old cat Jo-Jo who I grew up with *happy sigh*
