I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Hello again!

Sorry, November hasn't been the best of blogging/posting months for me.... I have no idea where the month has gone!  Besides being extremely busy at work and quite busy at home, I have also been busy stitching, which all comes down to very little time for blogging!  I do so wish there were more hours in the day and more days in the week sometimes... but only if those hours and days are for my leisure time - ie more stitching, more blogging, more spending time with hubby and the four-legged babies.  If wishes were $$ we would all be very rich people!

So what is a good excuse for a post... giveaways!  While catching up on my blogging today I have come across some more giveaways.

Fabulous Frogger - Lesli is holding a giveaway that closes on 3rd December 2011.  She started off small and now the giveaway is growing... for every 10 new followers she is adding another item to prize loot!  So far there are charts, threads, charms and thread organizers.  Click on the link below to have a look and sign up for Lesli's giveaway.

That is all the gievaways that I have found so far...  I apologise if I have missed your giveaway.  Even though I have spent almost the whole day reading blogs, I still haven't caught up!

Before I go I thought I'd share something cute with you....

We had the pest control man here today spraying for all those nasty creepy crawlies that come out in an Australian summer and like to spend the hot days inside my house... you know the ones I mean - black ants, cockroaches and spiders!  Now because my two boys are both inside cats and nervous of strangers I put them in our bedroom for safekeeping while the guy was here.  When I went back in to let them out of the bedroom Felix was asleep in the corner of the walk-in robe, and Oscar had buried himself in amongst the bedclothes.  He climbed in between the comforter and the blanket - nice and cosy, or at least he must have thought so as he stayed there for another couple of hours after the door was opened!  Cheeky little fellow :o)

Today is TUSAL day... so I am about to go and find a nice spot for ORT's jar to have it's photo taken in.

See you soon!

Too cute Noni. You've just gotta love your cat!!! Glad to see you posting (not that I had noticed you weren't as I've hardly read blogs lately!). Can't wait to see your TUSAL!
