Cushions & Cats

Other than biscuits and cushions- my other love in this world has got to be cats. This is my mum’s cat, Alfie, who decided to “help” during my photoshoot for my Nice Biscuit cushion.

Happy 2012 Everyone! Hope you all enjoyed the Hogmanay celebrations and had a relaxing first day of the year.
