BIRTHDAY’S, ICE-CREAM AND FAMILY

Zac turned 4 on Saturday so they picked me up and we went to Missy Moo’s for dessert, lovely place and a good choice apart from the cookie dough that I had, it was so small….ok if you was on a diet.

Alfie came to stay with me for the weekend, we had a great chilled time, he beat me at Elf snap.  His Elf’s had to come with him and they got up to mischief every night.  They found my christmas stickers and stuck them all over themselves then the next night they had a feast on the chocolate spread! Cosmo and Crystal.

Mia had her guinea pig out when we went back for cake, the new pup is settling in and very good now.

Alfie just loved this quilt cover so it will be delivered this week.  Yes I know I spoil them, Mia has a leopard hat/scarf coming as well.  I found a brilliant light for Zac as he is tractor mad and the light shines as a tractor, very pleased with myself for finding that.

It does not seem possible that next weekend will be christmas, the children are having parties at school before they break up on Wednesday.  I have Jodie’s birthday tomorrow then it’s christmas full steam ahead.

Stay warm and have a good week everyone.

PEACHES HERE INSTEAD OF MUM (Karen)

I AM HERE TO TELL YOU ABOUT A SUPER NEW FOOD!

img_5050

The lovely people at PURE sent my mum some cat food for me to try, then I had to let you all know what I thought of it.

It came in a nice secure box that I could not get in so mum had to get it out for me and then told me that I had to wait until the morning to try it, I did some begging but she was not going to give in. I usually have my food in the mornings then just have some biscuits later if I am hungry but it is very cold now so I am eating lots.

Mum says that this is very healthy for me as it is all made from fresh food, I hope I like it but I do eat just about anything I’m not fussy like some cats so I am sure it will be delicious.

Do you like my pictures?  They should put a picture of me on their boxes of food.

Mum read the box and said I was a medium size cat, does my bum look that big?  I was thinking small cat.  You get a nice sturdy scoop so she put 2 scoops into my bowl, I was watching her to make sure I got all of it, hope she doesn’t taste it.  There is a red thing, I am not going to eat that!  Then she says that it is for closing the bag so it all stays nice and fresh for me.  I have a bit of a sniff but it does not really smell tasty but then mum gets the scoop again and puts in 2 scoops of warm water, I start miawing then as it smells gorgeous, just put it down and give it to me I say.  Then she starts stirring it, oh come on now, I am hungry let me at that food.

Just hang on now, can’t talk and eat.

I don’t want to leave any of this as I am liking it very much, I am getting full up and it is taking me ages to eat all this but I have got to keep on, I love it.  Will have to tell all my friends about this later when I go out and patrol my patch, I don’t think I will be running about much as feel a bit full.

I am looking forward to eating this again, it is super and it tastes just like chicken, I know that as I have pinched a bit once but gees did I get into trouble about that!

The other night I was having a sneaky look round all the sides in the kitchen, mum was asleep so this is a good time to do this and I can sit and look out the window just to keep a check in case that big black cat comes in my garden again, he is not very nice and a bully, he scratched my nose a while ago and it really hurt so I went indoors and sat on mums lap for a cuddle.

Miowe, miowe she only went and left the food on the side, think I will have a bit more. This plastic stuff is a bit tough I got rid of the box quick but this is taking ages, wow, fell off side now its all on the floor, she is not going to be happy in the morning, I will have to hide.  I am nearly in, best give it a shake, some on the floor now it does not taste the same, why?

I really thought I was going to get into trouble but she didn’t tell me off, just took pictures, shall I pose again for you mum?

I wonder if I will get any more of this yummy food, mum did say it took me three times as long to eat it as what I normally do, I don’t know why but I do know that I want more!

LAZY DOG SITTING DAY

My daughter has got a new puppy called Ozzy so while they all went of to The reindeer Centre to see father christmas I was left to look after the puppy.  It made me remember what a handful they are and either eating, sleeping or shi..ing.

I did get some writing and reading done though so that was good.  I plan to have the week indoors writing as need to get my word count up for NaNoWriMo so I will be unavailable for anything and everything!

Hope your Sunday has been everything you wanted it to be and you have a great week. x

SANTA, REINDEER AND LIGHTS

img_0898

I thought it was just great that santa had real reindeer’s pulling his sledge on Friday evening for our lights turn on event.  I took Mia and Zac and Kara came along too as it got really busy.  The kids enjoyed themselves so that was the main thing but I have got to say the organisation left a lot to be desired.  There were so many different times popping up on Facebook about the evening that you was not sure where to be and at what time and expecting small children to wait around for an hour between events was ridiculous, we did end up going home before the end as it was a very cold evening.

It certainly bought the crowds out though so that was good, a nice hot chocolate and cake in Costa kept us warm.

JERSEY ZOO – GERALD DURRELL

Did anyone get the answer to my question about what linked Corfu and Jersey?

The answer was Gerald Durrell who as a boy moved to Corfu with his mother and siblings, this was where his love of animals and their protection became so important to him.  He rescued and encouraged breeding of many animals on Corfu.  He had the dream of one day having his own zoo!

As he grew up and travelled the world he wrote many books about the animals he encountered, he was always concerned about the survival and conservation of animals throughout the world.

This zoo in Jersey was the best I had ever been to, the enclosures were large, you could get much closer, so many employees that were all willing to stop and talk about the animals in their care.  The big house looked so elegant, Gerald’s second wife still lives there and often has a walk round and also changes the personal bits in the cabinets about his life in The Gerald Durrell Story area.

The zoo has six keeper talks during the day about the various animals, there is also an education room and film room.

Another area I thought was a fantastic place to make a bit of money but did not take any looking after was the book return room, you can just drop off books to be put there.  I had a look and there were books from so many authors, there was a box and it cost £1 for a hardback and 50p for soft.  I found a couple of books about Italy so that was my contribution.  Good job I drove my car over there as my boot appears to be getting more bags in it.

So all I have left to show you are the many animals, I took a few pictures so hope you enjoy them.

Love all the colours in this photo below.

If you ever get to go to Jersey then this place is a must and the coffee there is good to.
