So the hunt began for a new cattery.
Of course lots are booked up, but I did go to have a look at one which is quite close to us. Oh my goodness, what a depressing place it was, I felt so guilty at the thought that I may have to leave them in such a place. But there was another cattery to visit, the bad thing about this one is that it's about 20 minutes away which would make for a very unpleasant journey with 3 howling cats in the back of the car. But I was so relieved when I saw the place, it's just fabulous, I want to go to stay there myself. I suppose it's the equivalent of a 5* boutique hotel, with gourmet menu, extremely friendly owners, gorgeous views and I can even check the cats on web cam.
So now I can go on holiday without worrying about my lovely cats.

Christopher Kane's dress still looks fabulous despite a few loose threads hanging from the hem.

Bucks New University has won the award for best stand with a fabulous display of students work that blends together so well. Do make sure you check out the textiles there by Lois Norman, they're just to die for, so much lovelier in the flesh than a photo can do justice to.
I was also drawn to the work of Jade Marczynski who won a Selvedge award for excellence in textiles. She is great to chat to and had been inspired in her work by talking to people who had war time memories. This doesn't mean her work was dark or solemn but instead consisted of wonderful embroidered imagery and quotes in beautiful fresh colours which had a fashionably vintage feel to them. She even let me take her photo.
