What goes “Yowl, eek, yowl eek?”

Another live “present” from Arnie. I think my cat is having a mid-life crisis and is busy proving himself at the moment. Nothing beats seeing your dog chase the cat who is chasing a mouse around your living room at nine o’ clock in the evening…

It’s nearly Halloween time and Evie’s narrowed it down to three costumes…

Story time.

This is a tricky business these days as everyone wants a go at reading the story!
story bedtime


Evie and Gruff have been making their own spooky stuff this afternoon. They made a coffin out of a toilet roll for a wine cork Dracula. Frankenstein was “created” out of an old tampon box and an army of multicoloured wool pom pom spiders have made Arnie’s day.
Now to find the dog and cat under all this …

Doctor cat.

Gruff’s had an unsettled night with growing pains again.
In the midst of crying, we hear a little meow from the door and in prowls Dr cat.
Up he leaps, settles by Gruff’s side, and starts his purring lullaby.
Five minutes later, both are asleep.
Thanks Dr cat.

Evie’s made a little red cape out of paper and now her toy cat possesses awesome super-powers…

I’m not tired.

You so are Gruff…

Hair worm.

My vacuum cleaner had one, enormous and two foot long. Forensic reports source its DNA to a cat/dog/human hybrid kind of creature…

Worming your cat.

…is everywhere at the moment, literally.
Gruff has brought home half of our Sunday woodland walk with him, there are acorns in our washing machine, there is a chewed up branch in Bonnie’s crate and Arnie is busy swiping at a giant maple leaf on the floor…

Happy Birthday.

Evie is eight today. She has a new collection of wild cats and dinosaur books, There is a humongous chocolate cake waiting to be eaten when she gets home from school too.
Happy birthday pipsqueak.

Heating’s on.

I caved, it’s always better to turn the heating on before you see your own breath…

Arnie loves to watch the toilet being flushed. I’m relieved that someone other than me can actually flush the toilet in our house…

Books can give you ideas.

Gruff has taken that one literally…
books are useful

I ‘aint got nobody.

no one will play with me


…lots of them, towers of bread. I sliced through eight rounds tonight in one go, living dangerously…

Roller skating.

Ow, ow, ow!

Wet cat.

Here he comes, expecting a lap to dry out on…
wet wet wet


I absolutely agree Evie!

War Dance.

The Rugby World Cup is on at the moment and Wales are currently doing very well for themselves. I felt quite inspired by the New Zealand Haka and the Fiji War Dance.
I thought I’d try a little one myself, great for getting things done around the house…
