with an hour to spend...

Snoopervising in the garden.
How else is a self respecting feline to spend some of the weekend....?

... lounging on a rug in the garden cannot be turned down...

... breathing in that fresh Spring air a tonic....

 ... remembering to keep hydrated ...

.. check out my elastic tongue ...

... a spot of 'claw care'
... how did you spend yours?

cat on hot tin roof (not quite)

"Do one thing every day that scares you" ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Bingley watched by Darcy

I agree with Eleanor and think it is impawtant to go out of ones comfort zone.

I take pride in personally helping Mrs H to experience this too.

I think I succeeded with the roof walk because I heard her make a small scream when she looked out and saw me.
... I can't understand why she hasn't thought to come out here herself?!

... not really scary at all!

brother bashing

Bingley has a favourite cupboard.

... and do you know why?

... because it provides him with the perfect brother bashing opportunity!

... winner takes it all!

a bit of 'us' and 'them'

We wanted to share our Cornish trip with you, or at least a little bit of it - fluff and all...

brothers together - a loving moment (but unsustainable)


top desk

box supervision

Belfast sink ...... monitoring


top tower

... walk about.....


need we say more..?


mowing, digging, clearing...

... burning...

..more burning..
.. even more burning ..

...and then amongst this all.. some hidden treasures.. gems - and a complete cessation of burning or clearing!

Instead - stop, stare and enjoy!

follow the leader

What weather we had over Easter - glorious.
We all went to Cornwall to visit Auntie in her care home.
Then we stayed for a holiday down there and did some work on her garden.
Because it was so lovely we wanted to join the Havens outside!
After much debate we were let out under supervision but were over taken by the sounds and smells and bolted (Mrs H freaked out).
This led to us being rugby tackled to the ground!
Despite this, we wanted to go outside even more!
We glued ourselves to the windows and doors each time we were in and they were out...
Finally Mrs H got the message and bought us both harnesses!

 We deliberately defied the odds and walked happily in our harnesses immediately.
We like surprising Mrs H whenever we can.
Darcy rolling

We missed you and can't wait to visit you all again soon.
