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.

We’ve created a monster. Tubby now thinks any rectangular object is fair game to stare at. Picture frames for example. He also sits next to our monitors waiting for something to move. Worse he sits right in the middle of the screen while we are watching Movies and shows on Netflix.

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 …

I think we need a bigger bed. Weekdays, after the school run we often enjoy our morning coffee in bed. We’ll chat about plans for the day, or further ahead, discuss our projects, shopping, the kids or whatever things are going on. This morning we were discussing some of the things I learned in last …
