Wake up, play with kitten. Whip up some fruit scones and some wensleydale and cranberry scones Watch Joey gnawing on his treat stick Laugh at Phoebe’s look of disdain at the kitten Play with kitten some more.
Sirius is settling in really well. We’ve restricted his interaction with the other kitties. He saw Ophelia through a window and ran away from her. He is now sitting on top of a chair staring at her (or on second thoughts possibly staring at the hamster we are looking after at the moment). I thought [...]
We collected our little kitten today. He was a little cautious about leaving the cat carrier but he is getting more confident as time goes on. He’s shut off from the other cats now so he can just get used to the new sounds and smells but he is doing really well. He’s been snuggling [...]
Thank you ever so much for your kind words and comments about little Minerva yesterday – they have meant ever such a lot to us both. We really enjoy the 10 weeks we had with him just getting to play with him and watch him grow up was such a great pleasure. Merlin is back [...]

Thank you everyone for those kind words and healing thoughts. Those healing thoughts have definitely been felt here as the young man is on the mend. He’s back with his mummy now in isolation overnight and is doing very well. He’ll be coming home to us in just over a week with his brother Sirius [...]
I had a call from this morning to say Minerva didn’t seem too well and so we thought the best course of action was to get her to the vets. He (yes, it turns out Minerva is a boy) has pneumonia. If it turns out that his lungs aren’t fully developed then we will have [...]
Just before we went off to Paris, we visited the annual Eurofair very briefly. The apple van was very striking but not as amusing as this imagery These beetroots looked a bit tiny in comparison to mine at home I prefer chocolate shells to snail shells. The snails are from our village – I wish [...]
I was away two days last week staying at this grand old place learning about my leadership style and meeting some fun new people. It was an amazing experience and I am so glad I got the chance to go. I was glad to be able to take a few minutes after breakfast to enjoy [...]
