You may all have noticed that I haven't had as many interesting walks as usual this summer, oh yes I've been for walks but not anywhere REALLY interesting, (well not as much as usual), just the same old boring ones where you've all seen all the interesting bits already. Why is this? I hear you asking, well it all because She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed has been decorating. Yes she's been trying to go through the whole house, all because the electricians came and re-wired the place before Easter and left bare plaster where they had moved sockets and switches. So far she has done the kitchen, the bathroom, the computer room and is in the middle of doing the hall. I tried to help but was it appreciated? No. I thought the door frames looked pretty cool with furry bits on them........
So what have I been doing while she has been running up and down ladders? These pictures just about sum it up.

The book behind me is called Decorating Ideas, well I've got an idea. Stop decorating and take me somewhere special. Please

a Walk with Peter

My friend Peter came round this afternoon and we went in Auntie Ann's car to Aberporth and walked across the cliffs to Tresaith which is the next beach along the coast. Usually when it's just me and She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed we walk all the way, but Peter is a couple of years older than me and likes to take things a bit easier.

This is Auntie Ann on the way down to the beach, both me and Peter have gone on ahead to make sure it's safe.

She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed stopped to talk to someone but we couldn't wait to get in the water.

Peter started to dig a hole,

but I wanted to go and see the waterfall.

Look it's HUGE. The camera thingy couldn't see the top!

Then we went through this gap in the rocks,

Quick, come and see what's on the other side.

It's all rocky and different worldy here.

I'm sitting on a big rock while the waves crash behind me, only She Who Thinks She Must Be obeyed got the timing all wrong and missed the REALLY big one crashing when she took my piccy.

Let's see if she gets it right this time. No- you just can't get the staff these days.

Then we went back through the gap and met Meg and Dan, who I met on Aberporth beach at the beginning of the summer.

We all had a hoolie while the peeps talked.

Then me and Peter decided to dig a couple of holes before we went home.

But Peter thinks he's the only one allowed to dig on the beach and told me off.

Tara update

Do you all remember Tara's big adventure a while ago when she was CATNAPPED and sent to the R.S.P.C.A. by some new people who moved into our road just because she went to check them out a couple of times. Well it took her absolutely ages to recover from it as she was totally traumatised by the whole experience, and her mind has never really been the same since. We can't remember exactly how old she is but she must be somewhere between 16 and 18 and if the truth is told she has totally lost her marbles! If anyone feeds her, (and you'd be amazed how many people want to feed other peoples cats, I don't know why they can't get their own) she forgets to come home. In the last year I've had to bring her home from round the corner several times and stop several neighbours feeding her. She is confined to barracks now after somebody at the top end of the road fed her, put a collar on her and tried to completely take her over! She said she thought she belonged to one of the neighbours who has been taken into a home, but this is total rubbish as the children (hers included) all knew she belonged to me. As far as I can tell she carried on feeding her after I asked her not to so now poor Tara has to stay home. I don't think she minds too much as all she seems to do now is eat and sleep and make messes next to the litter tray- yes that's right, next to it.

When she first came home she decided to live on the printer,

She always was a strange cat!

Then because she didn't always bother to go to her litter tray I had to get rid of the carpet and decorate the room the printer is in. so she decided to live in the bottom half of the bookcase I had emptied to move.

Now she is only allowed in the computer room while I am in here. Finn is on guard at the door!

She seems perfectly content with life but it seems such a shame that she can't enjoy sitting outside and talking to the children anymore because of one persons selfishness.
