Caturday Wisdom #160

When someone tells you that it's almost Autumn it's good to remember that you never took off your winter coat. Ralph

I know lots of people like the cooler seasons but I am not one of those people. If I had to guess I would say neither is Ralph, even though he's a lot warmer than me at all times.

Caturday Wisdom #159

It's important to use your imagination. I am imagining that I haven't completely destroyed this and that it still looks remotely like a mouse. Ralph

Ralph and Ivy continue to love these mice that our mum knitted. 
Thanks for all the well-wishes last week. I am off my crutches and the freedom is honestly intoxicating. If you would like to try this for yourself, only stand on one leg for 14 days. You will build one very strong gluteal muscle...

Caturday Wisdom #158

A good way to transport plants if you don't have any pockets is to eat them! I find they always turn up again inside. Ivy

No Caturday last week as I had hip surgery on Friday and was too wasted to finish it. Now I am back home recuperating and while the cats have been allowed in my usually off-limit bedroom there has been a lot of plant regurgitation. Ivy just can't get enough!
