Last of the summer ice cream

Bloggie friends!

Summer is truly over!

On Saturday, the sun shone, the birds sang, Charlie rolled around on the dirt and grass and I was still wearing my open-toe sandals, singing "Oh what a beautiful morning" while devouring a tub of chocolate flavoured frozen yoghurt.

On Sunday, not only did I return home from work drenched from the stormy rains but I was chilled from the cold and groping in the dark for my house keys as it was night time by 6.30 pm. Oh and Charlie hadn't moved from his sleeping position on my bed from the morning.

Roll on Christmas!

Charlie says:  Dirt and grass are good for my furrs.

Squashies and Sophia!

Bloggie friends!

This is an emergency call for anyone in and around Baltimore with a cat blood typed B. Sweet Squashies of TK -Furrever Home needs a blood transfusion, details here. Please please help!

Charlie says: If I could I would!


Lovely Sophia - who sings beautifully, writes thoughtful poetry and most profound essays on faith has released a book, called the Mormon Diaries:

Brought up in a religious home, Sophia believes the only way to have a forever family is by following church leaders and obediently choosing the right. She goes to the right school, marries the right man in the right place, and does the right thing by staying home to raise her children. But when she starts asking questions about grace, love, and the nature of God, she realizes her spiritual struggles could rip her family apart.

You may purchase/read a sample chapter here and here. Good luck Sophia!

Have a peaceful weekend all!

Don't fence me in!

Charlie says:

The whole row of houses is my home
The surrounding gardens and fields are where I roam
I give my human many heart attacks
As I disappear and pretend to never come back(s)!

I am

A Foursome! Oo-er!

First, I am loving the Paralympics – so much drama!!! The biggest one so far is South African Pistorious missing out on the 200m Gold as Brazilian Oliveira pips him to the finishing line and now there are complaints! Wow!

Second, my little camera disk is full and as I’ve not got a new one, here is a substitute pic of Charlie done just now! LOL!

Thank you to lovely ManxMnews for introducing me to this wonderful fun thing to do!

Third, the first episode in the new series of Dr Who absolutely ROCKED!!!

Fourth, I think I’ve got something to submit to the flash fic contest I blogged about here (and many others fab bloggers blogged about too!) – but I think it still reads like pants so am gonna spend this week tweaking! I hope you are all writing your stories too! Yay!

So see you all soon! Happy September!
