My family very rarely play board games – it’s usually reserved for Christmas and if the power goes out. However, given we’re (mostly) all massive cat fans, I feel this board game might just change that.


Isn’t this just the best? You move your cat-themed token around the board, buying cat breeds instead of the traditional London Streets. But, if you’re unlucky you land straight in the water as other prowl past you. I might have to buy this just so we can have a game night before I move away this autumn (although I can imagine the fights if I can’t buy the Ragdoll square!)

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Fabric

Most people who know me see me as quite crafty, but my response to that (at least in my head) is ‘Yeh, but I can’t sew.’ I touch a sewing machine and it breaks. The only thing I’ve ever made is a pocket belt thing, and that was only because it was required of me for the wardrobe module of my degree. But this week’s wishlist item really, really tempts me to dig out the sewing machine and give it another go.

Catepillar Fabric

As I’m sure most of you are aware, this fabric is inspired by ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. I fell in love with it on sight, and started designing my dream dress. Maybe one day soon I’ll make that dream a reality!
