Because It's Worth It

Hi there and Happy Wednesday from me and The Big Blonde :)
It's been a busy few days - here's what we've been up to today...
Harley's just had a thorough eye cleaning session and, as you can see, is totally exhausted...

The same, of course, could be said of me... This cleaning-of-the-cat-face involved me getting him in an arm lock, with his backside wedged up against my stomach so he couldn't reverse out of hold, while I applied the "damp-tissuette-of-DOOM" as gently as possible to both eyes.
Well.
What a palaver.
You'd have thought I was trying to do open-eye-surgery or something... He kept squiggling around and stuffing his face under my armpit so I couldn't get to his eyes. This manoeuvre, whilst not resulting in him avoiding the eye cleaning, did managed to cover me in Springtime-Cat-Moult-Fluff which required a change of top afterwards...  
Harls is, without doubt, the biggest wuss-puss ever... but I Love him to bits and, as they say, he's worth it...

It was a little while later at lunchtime when, with the sun all shining in and Lillycat all lying around in it relaxing on the kitchen table, I decided it would be a nice thing to give her a wee bit of a brush...

Half an hour and several HUGE brush loads of Tummy-Fluff-Fur later I had a kitchen table cloth that looked like it was growing some sort of Penicillin culture, another top covered in cat fluff and a pair of contact lenses in that were definitely not as happy as they were first thing this morning...
And Lilly?
Oh, well, she was one Happy-Purry-Cat! And what's more she gave me a very rare and gorgeous "I'll-sit-and-pose-for-you-no-worries" picture. I might look in need of yet another makeover right now but I Love her to bits and, as they say, she's worth it...

Apart from 'Cat Spring Cleaning' days, there's other times that I end up in need of a bit of renovation....Like at Christmas time when there's door wreaths and garlands to be made... sticky / messy stuff Nordic Spruce...just look at these hands!! And don't forget I'd have brushed the odd strand of hair off my face during the day and, maybe, rubbed my cheek...well, you get the picture I'm sure ha! #chimneysweep

But, of course, it's worth it because you end up with lots of things like this!

Another thing I do is design and create Tribute Flowers which, to me, is such a very important service I offer as a Florist. People come and see me quietly here in the studio and talk to me about what it is they'd like. 
And I put everything I have into creating it for them.
Because it's important.
Because it's worth everything and means everything.

Some designs are hand drawn from scratch..
