Cast & Crew

Meet my people!  They frequently feature in blog posts, and are kind enough to lend a hand in the photography department.  I’ve been asked whether these are their real names: for the fuzzies, the answer is yes, but for the people, the answer is no.  One of the editorial decisions I make as a blogger is how much of my life to share with the universe, and I am not putting the no-holds-barred reality TV version out there (although it would be pretty awesome if one of those little title things popped up under each person as they appeared onscreen).

(There’s a very real possibility I will never get a picture for Mum)

In alphabetical order:

KITTENS ~ Eloise (named after the children’s book) and Malthus (named after the philosopher)

Yep, Stella knows when she has an audience.
