Is There Something On My Face?

Something On My Nose

 

Sometimes Lola is not the cleanest of cats. I couldn’t quite work out what she had on her nose when I took this picture, and she licked it off before I could try to investigate further. She has been known to get litter on her face though… Continue reading

Christmas Is Coming (Are You Ready?)

Lola the Tinsel FairyAdvent calendars everywhere are now seven chocolates lighter (time zone permitting, of course), and Christmas is rapidly approaching. I’ve already started listening to the Christmas playlist I compiled in YouTube to try and get in the Christmas mood.

Whilst Christmas is a wonderful time of year it can also be a time of great stress. Food, cards and decorations can get expensive, and that’s before adding in the presents. Too many people feel that they have to out-do each-other with gifts. Every year we have to buy bigger, better, or just plain more.

I’ve mentioned before that we are currently losing about as much money as we’re getting in each month. One of the perks of unemployment there… With our financial situation being what it is you’d think I’d be dreading the Christmas season, right?

But I’m not. And here’s why. Continue reading

I’ve written before about what I would want with me if I was stranded on a desert island. Today’s post is a little different – what five objects would I send off to my husband if he were stranded on a desert island? Continue reading

Snuggly Seat Stealer

Whilst Elvis may not be a lap cat (usually, at least) he does like seats. Most particularly any seat that has been vacated within the last three seconds or so. By Elvis’s logic, if you stand up you obviously don’t plan on returning to the seat. Continue reading

The Creative Mind

NaBloPoMo 2014A few months ago I studied a Coursera course all about creativity. I’ll admit I wasn’t overly impressed with the course as a whole. I considered giving it up once or twice, but being stubborn I decided that I was far enough through that I may as well keep going.

The second assignment for the course involved discerning and discussing our creativity type. There are two main types of creativity – at least according to the course – and these are innovation and adaptation. Continue reading

Feeling Friendly

Sometimes I despair of Lola and Elvis ever being friends. Elvis tries, he does, but he doesn’t seem to realise that his methods do nothing more than annoy the heck out of Lola. The majority of their interaction ends with Lola swearing violently at Elvis and, if he doesn’t get the message and tries again, us having to separate them at least temporarily. Continue reading

Lola likes laces

Once upon a time Lola was a kitten. She was tiny and adorable, and liked to play with things – notably bouncy balls, shoelaces, and her sister. She was sweet and cuddly and somewhat mischievous. Then she grew up. Whilst still on the petite side her voice more than makes up for her small stature. She can be sweet and cuddly at times, but mostly if she is asleep. The rest of the time she’s a little pesty monster! Not that you could tell to look at her. Continue reading

Oh Sew Comfortable

Yesterday Lola decided that, rather than allowing me to do the sewing jobs I needed to get done, she should use my sewing boxes as a bed. Shortly after this picture was taken she curled up and took a nap. For over an hour. Continue reading
