Tuesday 13th February

Dry, cold and sunny. Finally finished the article.

Smokey had his feet trimmed.

Wednesday 14th February

Damp and cold. My Valentine was off early doors with a trailer load of manure to the allotments.

I was obliged, compelled, I tell you,  to bake a fruit cake as MV had bought two bags of “brandy soaked Christmas fruit” on special and it’s out of date soon. I made Delia’s Last Minute Christmas Mincemeat Cake. It’s OK. We’ll eat it.

A photo from 2012 of Harry and Bertie in the back garden popped up in my Facebook memories. Progress has been made.

We’ve had a quote for the front garden that’s £2k less than the first, so we’re going with that. Work should start in April.

Friday 16th February

Murdo was here today, so he and Dan cracked on with the sunken garden. Ready to start on the sleepers. We decided to leave in just one set of steps, instead of four. Makes the job easier and uses fewer sleepers. Now we have 14 kerb stones to get rid of.

SG1Spare steps out.

We’ve talked about getting a couple of kittens this year. The local cat shelter popped up in my Facebook feed with a four month old black male. We discussed it and I’ve expressed interest. We got a message that we could go and see the kitten. So we did. And Cooper is coming home on Tuesday. Oh, and Riley, an eight month old black female.



Sunday 17th February

So today, we’ve been emptying all the Lego out of the spare bedroom to the classroom, so that the kittens can have that as their sanctuary. Not finished yet, but it will be tomorrow. Must find the litter tray, too.

LegoHalf of Much Fiddling relocated.

Funnily enough, Dan and I had been discussing moving the Lego to the classroom last week – just didn’t plan for it to happen this weekend. Still, it will be worth it.
