Trying.

I'm trying new things. After seeing Jane's blog this week with its beautiful big pictures, I thought I'd have a go at growing my images. Like many things it is not as easy as it looks. I'll practise a bit and who knows what wonders will appear. Or not.  Don't panic if the blog changes a couple of times, I'm not the most technical of souls and it might take a while for things to work.


                         
I found this knitting pattern last time I was in the shop. With all the chatter in the UK about Royal Weddings it might be time to bring this one back out. I love the note at the bottom which says adaptable to your own romance. You can adapt romance? What an odd thought.




 In other news, this weekend is the annual RSPB Birdwatch where volunteers sit for an hour watching their gardens and counting how many visitors fly in. I found myself at the kitchen window with a cup of coffee and a small friend for company. So I took a picture, which it got me thinking - imagine what would happen if Amazon sold birds and Magnus got to make a wishlist.......

I like the new look of your blog especially the large photos. You have a lot of different birds to watch for. I do my bird watching whilst on the exercise cycle, and lately even the sparrows are few and far between.

Oh my, that sweater. Words fail me.

On the other hand, the Mr. Magnus paw on the bird list gives me a big smile. (As do the socks).

Oh I love Magnus having an Amazon Wishlist. Lehnen would.. She often trys very hard to "talk" to birds out our window. We always say she is inviting them in! Love the pics!

LOVE the new look - but if you want to play with it more, I wouldn't mind seeing that too!

I got a kick out of that sweater pattern...I am wondering if there are modern ones coming out for William and Kate?

Your cat is hilarious - reminds me of my moggy (RIP) and her antics - she wasn't much into bringing dead birds or mice home - she would find us bits of wild string and burst ballons and old marigold gloves [she had a thing for rubber]!
