The trouble is the cats are a constant source of amusement – so you cannot ignore them, or their strange foibles (and furballs). Rather than make a load of separate posts here are some recent cat pictures. Tubby is pretty much blind and deaf. Sometimes it is hard to work out exactly what he thinks …

Main Coon Cat - Sprinkles in a small box

No box is too small for our Maine Coon, Supa-dink aka Sprinkles.

If I could just train Tubby to do my Facebook posting for me.

When she’s not on my desk Blue Kitteh spends most of her time pushing Zees and generating fur on my spare chair. Another High ISO, Slow shutter speed, hand-held picture @ 1/10 sec.

Which explains why Ginger and Lanie took so long on the school run this afternoon, obviously some shopping was involved somewhere along the way.

it’s a popular pastime around here.

You would have thought I would have got the hang of this self portrait taking thingy by now. Alas that isn’t the case. I spent the afternoon doing yard work, raking leaves, cutting down last year’s bamboo, I even helped Alek get the leaf blower working and took everyone to Andy’s for a concrete (ice …

Today was a little frustrating. I got my feedback on the business accounts, just a couple of simple changes to make, and then they’ll be ready to submit. That was the theory. The practice was different. Six hours later I was still struggling with the accounts software, unable to bend it to my will. I …
