I Hope everyone is well.
Mothers Day – It’s Mothers Day in the UK (I’m not sure if it is in other parts of the world). My mum was 80 a few weeks ago and I wanted to do something special for her for Mothers Day. I realised recently that I make things for lots of other people, but I’ve never made anything for Mum, so this week I converted a box, which originally contained chocolates, into a sort of Mothers Day card which I gave her today. In the middle are two photos of Mum and me when we were both much younger. I was lucky then to have such a loving Mum and I’m still lucky now.
Intuitive Cats – Usually my two cats get me up at about 5:30am because they want to go out, in fact they are desperate to go out. I don’t mind because I like getting up early, it gives me time to do some art or local history group work before I set off for my day job. But sometimes at weekends I could do with a break, that doesn’t usually happen.
Today I wasn’t woken up – no-one scratched at the base of the bed, ran over my head or whined in my ear to tell me it was time to get up. When I realised this in my half awake state I thought that Tony must have let them out while I was still asleep. So I had a peaceful lay in bed this morning and when I eventually decided to get up at 8am (very late for me) I was surprised to see that both cats were still on the bed: Jack Kat was on the pillow next to Tony’s head just gazing at his sleeping face, and Bill Kat was stretched out full length alongside him. Yesterday Tony was unwell – he had a change of medication recently and the change has proved difficult to adjust to – I think the cats knew, I think they were watching over him making sure he was OK. Fortunately he has been a lot better today.
That’s all for now, I’ll be back soon
