Morning Chris :)
Lovely kittens. I hope they will have nice homes ...

I thought it was only us men who didn't read instructions lol. I never do - until I get stuck and then I have to succumb lol

Ena Harkness reminds me of my Gran. She had one in her garden and always told people about it. I think it was a new variety in those days.

Victor Meldrew with a look of contentment, now thats something you don`t see.
I can`t be doing with written instructions, they always confuse me too much, hubby downloaded the ones that came with my Canon and printed them out for me, honestly theres hundreds of darn pages and I`m backwards and forwards like a flipping yoyo, by the time I finish looking I `ve usually forgotten what I started at so I gave up and use the trial and error way..
Lovely little kittens, some fun days ahead when they are moving about.....

Cracking pics...I recently bought my first Rose - a rambler. It seems to be doing well - I can wait til it blooms. Kittens are cutsie! I have 3 x 7 month old kittens who have only recently been allowed out to play. Instructions.....what are they? Better with trial and error is my motto!! or the other one...practise makes perfect!!

I am also an early getter upper...much to the annoyance of my OH....on weekdays I get up around 4 am, have a coffee, look here and then go down to the garden around 5.30 am before I toddle off to work at 6 am, and at the weekends it´s not much later...because I always think in a few years time I will be asleep forever....sleeping is such a waste of time.
