Three Cheers!


British Summer Time has started- clocks moved forward at the weekend. An end to early, dark evenings. This is my favourite time of year....


Scooter turned 19 on Friday. He has a runny eye and a runny nose, but otherwise he seems ok. He climbs the stairs to get into bed with us, he caught a mousie the other week, and thes last few, sunny, days, he waits and meows for his blankies to be put outside so that he can sunbathe on the otherwise damp grass. Once the sun has left the back garden he trots through the house to lie on the front windowsill and soak up some more form there.


-and a cheer for double helpings of hot apple crumble and ice cream. The perfect British pudding- the contrast between tart apples and sweet crumble top, between the steaming hot pudding and the melting ice cream.... oh, and why double helpings?? Because my chest infection seems to have returned, and so has 'that time of the month' so I was feeling suitably 'sod the waistline I want comforting' and anyway, no one else wanted any more! LOL!

Awww, many congrats, Scooter (smile) - you sound like you've trained your mummy well (blankies on the damp grass, and all that)! Our Jess is 13, and has a wee touch of arthritis now, and I've recently taken to having her sleeping up in our room at night now ('cos she's been sleeping in the garage for the past nine years, in protest over us bringing Jake home).

Haaa - we had apple crumble and custard last week, curtesy of Sam, he made it at college - yum, yum. So sorry to hear your chest infection is back hon, that's not on, you've already paid your dues on that! Hope it clears up soon, x
