I agree the photo of your cat is so cute. Please enter me into your giveaway that cottage is beautiful. Lucky you living in Cornwall, it's my dream to move down there one day too. My family is cornish and I miss them so much, my parents moved to Lancashire when I was young and I've spent most of my adult life trying to work out a way to move back down there. Hey ho, one can dream.

Thanks!

Noelle - Congratulations on your 150th Post! And thanks so much for having your blog, and sharing your life. It's one of the blogs that I read every morning before work.

By the way, children in the UK have a much shorter summer vacation than children in the US, although, there's been some discussion of shortening the summer vacation time in the US.

I love your Rose Cottage, so please enter me in your giveaway. It is adorable! And I can't believe you were able to make something so small (well actually, knowing your work, I do believe it). I've never been to Carmel-by-the-sea, but I've seen photos of the town's story book cottages. and I think your Rose Cottage accurately reflects their beauty.

Yeah!!! The 9th - The day I start my new job!! read on..... the 16th, even better, 2 days before I turn 37!! 37!! Where has time gone? I can remember turning 18 like it was yesterday. It's the bit inbetween that has me puzzled!!

Daft day to go back to school. Were on Monday (I think) in Dorset. Maybe I ought to check......

I used to have a grey cat when I was younger. He was the so affectionate. I have such a soft spot for grey cats. It sounds like you have made the most of your time off.
Lovely giveaway, please count me in!
