Lets Call Him Sirius !!!

Now that our new kitten has had time to settle in, and we have all  had time to get to know each other better – and  after much careful consideration, and debate we have decided to call him Sirius (of Sirius Black – Harry Potter fame) – primarily because of his colour, but also because he is a bit of a scallyway.

Sirius and Oscar have become buddies – and whilst they are still a little cautious of each other, are interacting and playing more and more each day.

Neighbours, everybody needs good neighbours…

Well, we've been here for a few months now, there are still a few minor "glitches" with the house (e.g. TV Points) but all in all we are feeling very settled. We've caught up with some of the neighbours - who are ALL very nice.  We rarely seem to … [Continue reading]

Introducing Nicholas von Whiskas

Well at least that is his RSPCA name.... It is highly unlikely that it will stick though, we will give him a week or two to settle in and see what names id most appropriate. Since Sheldon's latest "escape" (over two weeks ago) we have not seen or … [Continue reading]

Sheldon Returns

So... after another 6 days Sheldon has been found again.  We got a call this evening that he had wandered into the back yard of a family just off Meadowlands Rd... a mere 100 meters from where he was found last time. It appears that he has found a … [Continue reading]

The Dishwasher Saga – should it really be this hard?

I've never really been a great fan of dishwashers.  We tend not to use that many dishes and I usually find it quicker and easier to wash them by hand anyway.  I also think it is a good discipline for the kids, to get involved with "washing the … [Continue reading]

A little about Oscar

Oscar, our second cat, was procured after Sheldon had disappeared for a few months, and we'd decided that we may not see him again. Oscar was a stand out from the other cats when we spotted him at the RSPCA,  and he quickly warmed to the idea of … [Continue reading]

Sheldon up to his old tricks (with a twist)

For the last week or so, Sheldon has been disappearing promptly after breakfast and re-appearing several hours later. I've seen him wander across the (busy) road, but he always reappears in plenty of time for dinner. For the last few nights he has … [Continue reading]
