But how good does the shop look . Oh by the bye Neil said we had to tidy our desks and we have they look soooooo bare!!!!!
Well the fishes are all settled in their new habitat - living plants not plastic and we had no tragedies even Gordon the most elusive fish in the world was found and transferred and has found himself a home under the log. Oh we have lost one assassin snail so have to go and buy another one.
So now life can go back to normal and I can get on with the serious business of cooking and quilting. Oh this morning I had to do the ironing but that is the first time for a year as Rob normally does all of that for me. The only time i touch the iron is to press seams on quilts!!!!!!

Angela was trimming the top of her Friendship Braid quilt which has made extra large so there was no alternative but to sit on the table! Thank goodness for all the space we have at Art & Stitch.
This is our aquarium at home and the poor unsuspecting inhabitants are about to be relocated to the creme de la creme of new aquariums - I might move in with them! They are having every kind of added extra you can buy, what more than water and food do fish need,but no they are having special water; co2 gas cylinder to oxygenate the water, daylight bulbs oh and more still it will look great I am sure and they had better enjoy it - but the food is now being stored inthe freezer and I have to remember not to cook bloodworm when preparing our meals!!!!!

Then Sunday we went to Kew Gardens, and again the weather was fantastic - we went on the treetop walk, round the Palm House and the Lily Pond House and we had our own picnic under the trees
The picture above is the oldest pot plant known it came to Kew Gardens in the 1700's and is still going strong.
