Tales from Fraggle Towers ~ Feb 22

Most of my photography is being done on film, but I’ve still managed a few iPhone shots, mostly of the cats.

Winnie has a thing for sticks of any description, and apparently spaghetti is in that classification. πŸ™„


Winnie and Lord Vincent don’t really get on, Vinnie is quite cool and doesn’t bother with her, but she hisses at him and sometimes jumps on him when she’s going past him, but the conservatory seems to be a no-mans land, or at least there’s a truce for there. Yep I know the windows need cleaning!

Another picture of Teddy from work, he’s ao adorably cute but SO yappy, which I’m not too keen on.


He’s a cross between a Pomeranian and a Pappilon, whatever they are, and won’t get much bigger than he is.

I took some time out from work towards the end of the month and travelled south to see Ben, Lewis & Charlotte. It was Lewis’s 12th birthday last week but he was on half term the week before when I visited so I could spend more time with him.

That’s Ben’s ‘not another photo’ face!
Happy day!

They have been adopted by a cat who lives in their neighbourhood, Mrs. Miaow~miaow.


It was nice to spend some time with them, but the driving there and back was a nightmare in the bad storms. I stay in a little annexe to a converted chapel as Ben’s house only has 2 bedrooms and I like my own room and bathroom and managed this time to mix up my leaving day, so I was turfed out on Wednesday afternoon when I thought I was staying until Thursday. πŸ™„ I ended up just driving home from 9pm and getting in for 1am.

We’ve only done 2 movies this month, Spenser Confidential, Mark Whalberg, which was a good action romp for a Saturday night, and The Counsellor with Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. Directed by Ridley Scott we were expecting great things, but it was a bit of a damp squib really.

Phil has started on the redecoration of the dining room, and though it isn’t a huge room, it’s where the cabinets with CD’s, model tanks and a few preciouses live, so they have all had to be emptied and packed away. Steaming off the wallpaper starts tomorrow, thankfully I’ll be at work!

The weather has been fairly abominable, Storms Eunice, Franklin were mega~windy and rainy, I did my night drive up the country whilst Franklin was doing it’s thing, and I think we were supposed to have a Gladys too and we might have but if so it got lost in the news about Putin invading Ukraine. It’s been a sunny couple of days this weekend though so there’s that. But yes, Ukraine. Scary times and it seems to be escalating god knows where. Nothing to do but wait and see, but it’s hard to think about anything else. So that’s how February ends.

  1. Driving all that way in the dark during a storm must have been an endurance test.
    Steaming wallpaper? I haven’t done that since 1978. Only painted walls ever since, no wallpaper anywhere I lived.
    Teddy is a mix of two of the yappiest dog breeds known to man. He was a YAP waiting to happen. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Isn’t it just like a cat to perch on top of a door? πŸˆβ€β¬›
    Love the photo of you and Lewis. They’re all good, but that one makes me smile. πŸ™‚
    And who could resist Winnie’s blissful-eyed look by the window?

    One of my cats (Arafel) used to love to play with plastic coffee straw stirrers. I guess they were her “sticks.” Another, (Onyx) had a thing for any kind of dried plant or anything similar. I used to have to stand my straw brooms upside down so he wouldn’t chew on them! πŸ™‚

  3. Now I understand why the photos of Winnie and Vincent are usually they individually, is an adventure to know the type of strong personality a cat develops. I like the old movies by Ridley Scott, the last ones not that much, but his Blade Runner is my favorite movie ever.

    1. Only posting once a month, at the end so you haven’t missed much. Burger King is better than McDonalds, that’s all that can be said about it, but I have been in one in America- it was at a rest stop on the way to Ohio, nice but small.
