Goodbye Jakey

Some sad news for this post I'm afraid, Jake my beloved cat passed away after a long battle with kidney disease. As you may have seen in previous posts, he loved to sit and watch me work and was always getting up to mischief, knocking my buttons on the floor and burying himself under piles of fabric.

I'll miss him watching me work and cheekily dipping his paws in my tea. Things will be very quiet from now on.
It was supposed to be a surprise but he was going to be a character throughout my book, with illustrations by Gemma Correll of him getting up to all sorts of mischief throughout. I've decided he will still be a character and the book will be dedicated to him. This way he will live forever.

Goodbye Jakey, my little ray of sunshine.
