Very happy that Jacob cat finally came home after a night out in the storm. He is now under the bedclothes with me getting warmed up after a feed...

My ginger giant lollops into my room at night with a determined look on his face, thunders onto the bed, makes his distinctive "lift the blankets" noise and burrows down to my feet where he stays for the night. If ever I don't pay heed to his demands straight away he makes unique grumpy bossy noises that he never makes at other times, 'til I raise the covers for him. I find the whole routine hilarious.

No use shutting the door to keep him out, he just jumps at the handle and nearly wrenches it off.

roflol! Sounds all too familiar! Jacob curls at my side like a great hot water bottle.

A day of hardcore pampering and self-care after a stressful manic few weeks.

Slept til 11am, got a facial, manicure, knocked around the shops with a latte from my favourite cafe, treadmill for an hour to get the blood pumping, now chilling in front of the TV with some smelly candles and CBD oil.

Feel like a new woman

Snugged in with tide- music and wind-song as backing.. A huge Sunday breakfast cooked and eaten... well, most of it. We were told off in childhood if we left anything on our plates if we had served ourselves, " Your eyes are bigger than your stomach!" and it was not a compliment. However the rest will get eaten later!

A day ahead,, pottering, knitting, mopping more of the floor.. whatever needs doing that I can manage. Still not ordered seeds..

A serendipity Sunday.. Mass? wherever my finger lands....

I found my favourite dress I'd mislaid for days, and my Dicentra "Lady in a bath" plant is coming up. The flowers look like pink and white heart shaped locket necklaces dangling from arching stems, it's a spectacular plant.

Makes a great difference.

Took a mug of coffee outside and watched the sky and ocean and the cats playing... Light at the end of the tunnel and happy with it

another " fixit" happy!

many months ago, a gale took off the outside flap of the letterbox. Since then the inner flap has rattled and I ran out of sticky tape to stick it down as else also a draft . Today new cat learned how to free it..

So I really had a good look... two minutes later I had picked 4 very thin twigs off the elderberry bush, pushed them in the holes on the flap and frame and HEY PRESTO!

If only all problems were so easily solved... But feeling ridiculously happy..

NB mail is left at the gate so the letterbox is not used .

Our musical is over! 6 nights to huge crowds and standing ovations. It's such a great feeling. Now I am happy that I can spend some time with my boyfriend because god love him, he might as well have been single for the last month!

Watching the chase with my 6 yo who's screams she got the answer right but couldn't say as " she forgot" what the word was.
Competitive streak in that one ðŸ˜
