The bottom piece.
and a sideways view.
Thanks for looking.

Oh and on Sunday, my cat bit me on my leg and left a couple of puncture wounds.it did feel ok but last night when I  had a bath it was quite sore and now it is hurting a little so I think I am  going to have to ring the doctors this morning and see if I need some antibiotics.

Also you may have noticed my commenting has been a little lacking recently.
I have something happening in my personal life which is exciting but scary too.
We had a phonecall which we have been awaiting for nearly 2 months yesterday and hopefully within the next 4 weeks or so things should be finalised and I can reveal why I have been missing so much with needing to attend meetings etc.
I can say though, I am not pregnant, I am not getting divorced or emigrating and it is nothing to do with crafting, oh and we are not buying a house.
It has been a decision that has not been entered into lightly and has been discussed with close family and I am not doing this thing alone , it is going to be exciting but a big step too.
So keep your eyes peeled and once all the T`s have been crossed and all the I`s dotted I will be able to share my (or I should say our) news.
Until then....
Lotsa Hugs
