Who dat cat?

From dogs to cats. Have I mentioned that Merlin got his name partly because he has always had a thing about caves? Well, whilst son was watching this encounter in the back garden this morning...
(look closely under the magnolia tree)

someone snuck into the backpack he takes to work...

Found dogs!

Hurrah! Dogs have been found and are now with the RSPCA!
Much relief all round.

Later that same day...


Home again, safe and sound!

Lost dogs

Heart in mouth and fingers crossed today for my friend who had her car stolen in Cambridge yesterday - with her two liver-and-white springer spaniels in the back.

They were in a dog cage, so hopefully whoever stole the car will have just hoisted the cage out and left it somewhere obvious for a decent human being to report.

As you can imagine, my friend is torn between hope and despair every time the phone rings.

Monday indulgence

It's not just me, is it? I mean, everybody gets days when it's grey and cold and you can't find the right present and you'd forgotten this was the day the library closes early and someone else put the last Brussels paté in their trolley just as you reached for it, don't they?

So everybody mutters "s*d the calories" to themself and comes home with a toffee pecan lattice, right?

Yeah, thought so.
