Tussie Mussie

 Charles, Milo and Muddy's mum gave me a Tussie Mussie Posy
 Both of us could not identify which is this plant in the posy - Any ideas?

 Like how could I not love what I do when I get waved at by Pancho when he sees me coming down to the cattery?
 Can you see Pancho in his SleepingPod? He is soo amazing and happily goes in it so I can zip into the other cat runs. Pancho does not mind at all and even got a cuddly yesterday form one of Pinot's family - a young girl who thought he was lovely.
I didn't get a photo of Bella and Molly tonight - I need like 6 hands to get in their run with a camera and their dinner. But man what a fuss the girls made of Brent earlier in the day when he opened and taped up their cat flap...These girls prefer men by far. Talk about put it on for the blokes.

 Ella was tucked up in her igloo so this was the best photo I got of her.
Pancho is in the middle run with girls on both sides of him.
 The boys - Charles, Muddy and Milo all snuggled up. I have never had to heat hotties for the cats in January but with our cool summer (now raining) I've been putting hotties in the boys beds and as they are getting on now (Charles will be 14 end of the month) they sure liked the extra touch.

Knitting, books, cats, weather...

 I'm needing mindless knitting/craftwork at the end of the days now I'm full into swotting for exams. I'm feeling a bit more confident re the exams this week. I've three more weeks of swotting left.
This is my linen scarf using up scraps (and some new mini's). Katie from Inside No 23 has a KAL that I'll probably enter.... I've so enjoyed her Podcasts

Any spare moments I'm listening on audio to Hidden Figures. Hoping to get it finished before it comes to the movies.

 We planned for the bad weather - but had an uneventful night here on the Kapiti Coast, sounds like it was pretty wild in Wellington. However it is just starting to rain heavy here. Bother I have to go out today and buy a new phone - mine has died. I think I'll get an Iphone 6S as I like being able to plug in ear phones and use them such a lot that I seem to go through them.
So for now if you want me just email or Facebook message me.

Carrots, Whiskey and Cats

I was telling a friend that at least with my garden being abandoned due to full on swotting I am keeping the bees happy with the weeds flowering. 
Carrots are in flower and I hope they will still be around in a month to collect their seeds.
Oh I am looking forward to being back in my garden. Brent is planning a new vegetable garden for me... we are all looking forward to having organic home grown veges again.

Our family went to the movies to see Whisky Galore. Such an awesome fun movie - we all laughed and thoroughly enjoyed it,

I've been taking my Ipad out to the cattery with me playing with the video settings and uploading them to Instagram. But some owners are not on Instagram so did a photo shoot today.

Pancho's grandma lives in USA and she likes to see his photos. On the video this morning - he ate a spider.... he is so not a city boy when staying on the farm.

Pinot is feeling much better and got up on top of the door shelf this morning... lucky Pancho had some treats in his bag, as my treats were in the outdoor runs. Thanks Pancho for sharing, we sure tricked Pinot and got him down mighty smartly with bribery,,

Molly having a snuggle... It cracks me up how most of the cats we bred love to be carried like a baby, we did this to them as kittens.

Bella having her own stepping stone. She looks grumpy here, but I think her ears are more choosing who to listen to Abbey or me... This was the best photo of Bella today.

Oh Milo how you do look like your mum Caro... he scrowls like Caro used to... gosh we miss Caro.

Muddy doing his pirate impersonation

Charles does seem to be pulling faces at the paparazzi...
