On a lighter note, dare I say it....could it be that weather-wise we have turned a corner and Spring is on its way? Or are these a mirage!
Crocuses are erupting in my garden! Now I could say that we have purposefully decided to allow our garden to return to a natural 'meadow-like' state but that would be such a bare-faced lie! The truth is we are too darned lazy to get out there and look after it properly....you know, with carefully planned planting, weeding and the like. I have to admit that although I do appreciate gorgeous flowers and plants and love to draw them, I really cannot muster up an ounce of enthusiasm for gardening. My most hated BBC radio programme is "Gardener's Question Time" - I find it crushingly boring! Hence the wilderness that you see here - pretty though, isn't it?
Now here's something closer to my heart!
This is Bobby, brother to Keith and brother (once removed) to Barley whom you may remember from previous posts on this blog. Do not be fooled by that nonchalant look, Bobby is King Pin, the Top Cat of this family. He positions himself in front of my computer screen at key times during the day, if that is where I am, of course, and does not budge. Who needs language when you can communicate your needs as effectively as this! This posturing translates as "it's time you quit staring at that thing and started preparing a meal for myself, my brothers and other feline relatives!"
And finally, there's this......
I am one of a dwindling number of people who actually still like my tea brewed properly in a teapot - remember those? I spotted this tea cosy in town recently and had to buy it. Need I say more?!
