UK pictures

Stimpy-tiger in one of his favorite spots.

This is not knitting related, but I really wanted to share a couple of photos from our trip back home. One of the big things was seeing our cat, Stimpy, who now lives with my parents and is loving it. He decided to move in with us when we lived in Derby, UK, I don't think his previous owners were very nice to him. We would kick him out of the house all the time since the sisters weren't too keen on him, we even tried to get him to live with friends, but he just kept coming back. We gave up in the end and he stayed. Now that was eight years ago, since then we moved to the States and he moved in with my folks. He settled in immediately and gets more and more affectionate every time we see him. Isn't he adorable?

Up above the trees and houses...

We also had a lovely little rainbow on one of the days. They're actually pretty common in the UK thanks to the super-changable weather, there is frequently 2-4 seasons in one day!
