It’s like I was away!

I spent a majority of the weekend away from home which was largely unplanned. Friday evening had a friend of mine cook for me which involved first walking to his. All 3.7 miles. It got so late I stayed over, but didn’t get much sleep due to us talking most of the time. And then […]

And #soulcat is mine!

It’s been up and down for weeks with Arthur imminent return back to his owners and two weeks ago it looked certain I was about to lose him. However, thanks to my awesome skills in convincing people and him genuinely being happier at mine, they made the decision on Monday to leave him at mine […]

Knitting: Pretty little scarf

A few weeks ago I couldn’t resist the temptation and ended up buying some fairly expensive, at least for my standards, wool from John Lewis. It was in a clearance bin after all! The wool is spectacular and different from any wool I’ve ever knitted with. It’s layered and contains three very different repeating patterns […]

Photo library

Sorting out all the photos I have taken has been an ongoing project of mine for close to two years and I’ve blogged about it several times before. And, as of a few days ago, I’ve actually finished it! All of my photos are stored on my laptop in Dropbox folders which is one overall […]


This week I spent a couple of days in Sheffield which was more of a neccessity rather than a trip for the sake of going on a trip. Still, no one can say I didn’t do a bit of sightseeing whilst there!

The week ahead

Unsurprisingly I’ve sort of caught the travelling bug and, coupled with the excuse of never having explored the UK much plus some amazing National Express offers, I can’t wait to travel to places. And so I am doing this week with a brief visit to Sheffield to visit a friend and whilst I’m both excited […]

There can never be too many cats

Having watched quite a bit of TV lately, mostly as an excuse to do some knitting, I’ve also had the ‘fortune’ to watch a lot of adverts. Surprisingly some are actually quite good, like the one with Bobo, but nothing beats this excellent and supercute IKEA advert: Arthur, or rather soulcat as @Jhomerston dubbed him, […]

Cat(s) rule(s)

In my continued efforts at procrastination instead of sorting pictures [yes, I know that post is from April and I haven’t done much since then, shush!] I’ve decided to tackle the much smaller amount of documents, letters, pdf’s and random notepad notes instead. Only a few hundred uncategorised ones there! Among random started blogposts, some […]

So then this cat appeared.

As I’ve already mentioned on Twitter I was expecting a new houseguest in the form of cat Arthur this weekend. After my housemate and the dog moved out at the beginning of April, I didn’t intend to have any pets move in for a long time and this wasn’t planned more than a couple of […]

Thoughts of the day

I’ve still not watched Jurrassic Park. I have sooo much to do before Christmas.. I have to ask someone to look after house/cats for a couple days, but I’m not sure I trust that person, yet I don’t have an alternative.. I want to visit Las Vegas. “Never use a pointy stick to check if […]

8 1/2 months later…

It’s been a while since I last talked about my cats and it’s about time to update some of the pictures and show just how much they’ve grown. They were born on the 17th of March 2007 and whilst I originally planned giving most of them away, it didn’t quite work out and they are […]

Republish your first post!

It’s that first post, writing it, proof reading it and publishing it that starts it all off. The first post on the first blog that is the beginning of the end as you only then realise just how much time you spend blogging! Often you’re not sure what you want the blog to be about. […]

Goodbye Suki

I’ve not been on here or online much in the last few days and life’s generally been a bit shitty. As I don’t do much during the day I have been looking after Andrew and Ian’s dogs: Suki and Bella. This has been going on since the end of December and it’s only me, the […]

They are fighting now….

They are now just over a month old and are really having a lot of energy now. They always seem to fight or try to clean themselves. When I say ‘try’ I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so adorable than watching a kitten try to lick it’s back paw just to discover that it […]

Happy Easter!

It’s Easter! We’ve got beautiful weather, our neighbours are having a barbecue which smells delicious, the dogs are running around, my cat is sleeping next to me and it’s just a great day. Hope all of you have a great day, too. :) Cat EDIT: Just found a great Easter related post and image over […]

Alex can sit!

The latest from the kittens: Alex can sit! It’s now 2 weeks and 2 days that the kittens were born and they are making some real progress. Billie absolutely loves to be stroked on the belly, Danny is really energetic and Alex, well, he sat up properly earlier. It only lasted ten seconds, but it […]

Say hello to Sam

Picked up one of the little ones yesterday, I just couldn’t resist. They are so incredibly light and just so gorgeous. Take a look at Sam. :D Cat

Kitten update

The kittens are now one week old, they have names and the countdown to them opening their eyes has started. I am very impressed in the way Phoebe allows me to get close to them. I mean I have only touched them once, but she leaves the room when I’m in here and has no […]
