Much Better


I wakened up quite early this morning 'cos I had a lot of energy left after being in the house nearly all day yesterday and the first thing I did was listen. I listened carefully and I didn't hear any rain battering off my window. So I rubbed my adorable little lugs and listened again in case they were still sleeping, but I still didn't hear any rain and when I bounded over to the window and had a good look I didn't see the rain either and I was very, very happy.

I was so desperate to get out to play that I wakened my MH and asked her to please feed me and open the window which, of course, she did. So I gobbled up my breakfast and headed outside into the DRY sunshine and I liked it MILLIONS!


Oh my dear friends, I was such a happy puss just wandering through the long grass and then finding a lovely wee spot to have a lie down and listen to the birdies. It was magic and just what this adorable little puss loves. I stayed out for a long, long time just doing pussy cat things and having a brilliant time.

Even when my humans went away out in the afternoon to do some sport type stuff I didn't mind 'cos they left the window open for me so I could nip in and out if I wanted to. I was having a snooze when they comed home but then I went outside again once I knew they were safely back to me.

I am having my usual after dinner nappette, but then I am heading outside again and I have a feeling I might be out for a long, long time. Oh, I just love this weather!

Well....



... it would appear that I was wrong and my MH was right after all. Now, why isn't that a surprise? We both wakened up in the middle of last night with the rain battering off our bedroom window and the old dear was very happy 'cos she had cut the grass and she knew that with all that rain it was the right thing to do. Oh, she loves it when she's right!

And to make her even happier, the rain never stopped the whole day! She was a very happy MH. I, on the other paw, was not such a happy Squeak 'cos I couldn't get out to play as much as I wanted and spent most of the day just snoozing and cuddling into my MH.


I did manage out in between showers but just as I was wandering back to my house another great big rain cloud opened above me and I had to run as fast as my adorable little legs could take me but when I reached my house the window was shut and there was nobody in my living room to let me in. Oh dear!

I was just beginning to panic when I saw my MH coming into the room so I hammered on the window and she came rushing over to open it for me. Yippee! I was a wee bit very soaking wet, but she dried me and then cuddled me and I was a happy puss.

Sometimes it is worth getting wet, sure it is?

I Do Wonder...


... about my dear old MH. Now, you all know I love her millions but there are times I wonder if all her slates are intact, but oh please don't tell her I said that or I am in lots of trouble. Now, I suppose you will want to know why I am thinking that and of course I will tell you.

We were all having our normal morning chat before my DH left to go to the Cat Shop and I know I heard my MH telling him that she was thinking about cutting the grass but they both thought it was far too windy for the old dear and I was quite happy about that.


So, off he went in the boat and me and her had a seat and a wee cuddle and then she decided that since the little birdies had done naughty things on our window, she would wash them all, even though it was windy. Away we went with our basin of soapy water, our cloth and our drying machine thingy and we did the windows. When I say 'we' you know I helped by watching from a sheltered bit in my garden and I know she liked that.

Everything was fine so far and when she finished the windows, she nipped down to see my friend S.'s puss cat and then when she comed back she told me she was going to cut the grass after all. I just shooked my adorable little head! It was blowing a gale----well, almost, but it was windy. That didn't stop her and a minute or two later I heard the mower going and I could see her racing round my garden. One way was easy 'cos the wind was pushing her, but the other way was hard 'cos she had to fight against the naughty wind.

Oh I did feel sorry for the old dear, but she didn't have to do it did she? And that's what makes me wonder!! But I am saying nothing. It is much safer that way. Hee hee

Millions Better


It has been a much better day today with no rain and lots of sunshine so me and my humans have been a lot happier.

I have been outside nearly all day and I have liked it lots. In fact, when I comed home one time, my DH stroked my adorable little body and then he laughed 'cos I was HOT! I had been lying in a lovely cosy spot in the long grass and I was almost cooking I was so warm. But, oh I did like it lots!


I have hardly seem my MH today 'cos I have been outside and she has been busy inside my house, but she told me that if it is still good weather tomorrow she will come outside with me. She said she wants to cut the grass and I know she needs to clean our windows 'cos some of the little birdies have been a tad naughty and used them for something they should not have used them for, if you catch my meaning :-))

So, I have had a very good day and after my little rest I will be going outside again. It is going to be a good night and I think I might stay out quite late 'cos my humans can leave the window open for me.

Everything in my little world is just 'purr-fect' thank you very much.

Dreich!


My MH has a super word for describing the kind of day that we have had and it is dreich. And that's what it was all day, Dreich! I quite like that word, but I don't like the weather.

It has been wet, windy and misty all day although my little weather man friend told me that the sun would be shining all day and it would be warm. Well, it was, but not here. Everywhere else in the world except Orkney and Shetland. Oh dear, we were not best pleased.


I didn't get out to play very much at all but my MH did go out to see the other pussy cat but she waited until it wasn't raining too much and then she comed back to me with my big cuddle and I liked it lots.

I have had my dinner and now I am going out to see what is happening on my little island and to have a chat with all the little cows and sheeps that are in the fields in front of my house until the rain comes back on again.

My little weather man friend has told me that the weather has to be better tomorrow, but then he told me that yesterday didn't he?

Half and Half


That's what my weather has been today.

The good half was in this morning and then the rain comed on and the wind comed back so I haven't been out too much at all. I shall have to do something about that before bedtime, methinks. I need to get some fresh air before I settle down to go to sleep but right now it is pouring with rain and I am purr-fectly happy sitting on my MH's knee with my adorable little head on her lap top.


I have a middle of the night picture for you which the old dear wouldn't have seen if it hadn't been for me 'cos she was sound asleep and my little tummy was telling me it was nearly empty so I asked her if she would get up and help me to put some food into it, and while she was doing that we noticed it was a lovely morning and we decided to share it with you, so I hope you like it.


There's not much news at all as we haven't done very much but it has been good. I hope you have had a good weekend.

Ho Hum


Oh dear. The first day that my humans have had very little to do outside it rained! It rained nearly all afternoon and only now as I am telling you this, the sun has comed out and the rain has gone away to make somebody else wet. Shame

It made my poor old MH very wet this afternoon 'cos she had to go out to have a wee chat with my friend S.'s pussy cat 'cos S. is away her holidays and we don't like the pussy cat to be lonely. She comes and talks to me when my humans desert me----S. that is, not the pussy cat! Hee hee. Anyway, away my MH went and when she comed back to me and my DH she was very soaking wet. In fact she was nearly ringing, but not quite. I gave her a great big cuddle to make her feel better, but I waited till she was a wee bit drier 'cos I didn't want to get wet. I had done that earlier on and didn't want to do it again. She understood though, so it was OK.

I have a brand new baby cow friend and it was only made yesterday---and I saw it all! AND, I didn't come over all unnecessary, so I was very pleased with my adorable little self. It was when my MH was away to Kirkwall and me and my DH were in my garden and the cow was in the field right beside us when suddenly we saw it all beginning and we stayed to watch and then a little black calf popped out and the mummy cow licked it all clean.


The little baby cow just lay there for a while and then it tried to get up and it made me giggle when it was trying to work out which leg went where 'cos I think I had that same problem when I was brand new but I can't really remember as it was a long time ago. But the little calf soon worked it all out and it is now running all round the fields so I am going to try and have a wee chat with it tonight when I go out to play. If the mummy cow lets me, that is.

I hope we get some better weather tomorrow 'cos my MH says she wants to be out in the garden and not be working. She just wants to play with me and maybe she will send you a picture of the little calf, so I have asked my little weather man friend to please make the rain stay away. Thank you.

A Good Day

.... but it was just me and my DH 'cos my MH had to go away to Kirkwall, but it was still good and I had lots of fun.

We were both outside for nearly all of the day 'cos the weather was still good and my DH was finishing all of the little jobs that the humans had been doing last week, so I was able to keep an eye on him and enjoy myself at the same time. I liked that lots and I know my DH appreciated my help.


I had just retired for a little nap when I heard my MH coming back so I ran to meet her and she did what she always does when she comes home. She lifted me up and gived me a great big cuddle and told me she had missed me millions and that made me very happy indeed.

I am now in my favouritist position and that is on her knee with my adorable little head on her lap top and I shall be there till I decide to go out exploring again.

So yes. A very good day indeed!

All Done


My humans have finished all their work in my garden and I am liking it very much. I am liking it very much two ways---one that they are all finished and so there is more time for me and liking it 'cos my garden looks lovely. They were busy today painting the greenhouse, the gym and the benches but they finished just before dinner time and my MH told me not to sit on the bench for a wee while or else I will be a black and white and brown puss, and we wouldn't like that, would we?


I have had a very good day 'cos the weather on my island was beautiful. It was warm and dry and not windy, so I have spent most of my day outside and there has been plenty of company for me whenever I have wanted it. I have had human company plus the sheeps and cows are in the field in front of my living room so there was no way I was going to be lonely.

My MH has to go to Kirkwall tomorrow but my DH is staying home with me and we are going to have a very lazy day 'cos he told me he was a wee bit tired and needed a day doing nothing at all. That was funny 'cos my MH tolded me the same thing but she will need to wait until Saturday to do nothing so it looks as though I will have two days just being a very spoiled little Squeak.

Yippee!

I Did It Again


Oh dear. I had another little incident this morning --- the same as last week. It was another lovely morning so as soon as I had gobbled up all my breakfast, I went outside to see what was happening in my little world and it was just so lovely I stayed out for a long time. I wandered round my fields and then had a big explore in the nice farmer next door's big shed and it was while I was sitting there sunning my adorable little self that I saw my two humans driving away in my DH's car! Oops.


That was the same thing that happened last week and my poor old MH was so upset that she didn't get a 'cheerio' cuddle and here she was, away again without another cuddle. Oh I did feel so sad. But a minute later I saw a little mouse and chased it so I didn't feel sad again. Sorry MH. She got a great big 'hello' cuddle when they comed back so she was fine.

It is still a brilliant night, so as soon as I have had my after dinner snooze, I am off again out into the outside to see what is happening and I am happy about that. I know what might be happening tomorrow 'cos I heard my humans saying that if my little weather man friend sends good weather, then they will finish off all the outside painting that they have to do, so there will be lots of company for me whenever I want it.

So. Please Mr. Weatherman, send us some painting weather. Thank you.

Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Brilliant


I have had another absolutely brilliant day and I am a very happy little puss. I have had some good fun and I have been told a little secret which has made me quite a wee bit sad but quite a wee bit very excited too, so I am slightly confused. Are you wondering why? OK, I will explain.


The weather was good again so my humans decided to finish painting the greenhouse and the gym, so we all headed outside and while they put all the new paint on, I played in the long grass and came back every wee while for a cuddle and a wee look to see what they had been doing. And I liked it. I have put some pictures for you to see and I hope you like it too.


It was when we were all outside that I got my surprise 'co my friend R. arrived to have a wee chat and she decided to help my humans with the painting which made them happy. I was just sort of hanging around with them and that's when I heard the little bit of news that has me a little bit discombobulated. That is my word for today! I heard it on my television and I like it lots. I don't really know what it means, but I like it lots.


So, anyway. I heard that my humans are going away their holidays again but this year because my friend A. is away in Glasgow, my other friend R. is going to be staying with me and we are going to have the very bestest of fun.

I am looking forward to it already.

Oh Dear...


...I have been a very worried little puss all after noon and I am sure you will be desperate to know why.

Well, the morning went as usual which was me and my MH sitting on my couch having a little chat after my DH went away on the boat to the Cat Shop and then me heading out into the very fine weather while the old dear did all her housework. It was very good for me though, 'cos she left the door open and I could just wander in and out as much as I pleased and every time I wandered in, there was a lovely big cuddle waiting for me. So all that was very fine indeed and this adorable little puss didn't have a care in the world.


But then my MH came outside in the afternoon and that's when my worries started 'cos she was painting the greenhouse! Now, you all know that the gym is hers, but the greenhouse ISN'T. It belongs to me and my DH and here she was painting it when he wasn't here. Oh dear, I spent my whole afternoon worrying about what he would say when he got home and as soon as I saw him coming into my house, I shot under my couch---just in case!

I just lay there very quietly and listened and then I got the shock of my life when he said she had done a brilliant job! Phew! I must have been outside this morning when they agreed that she could paint it, but if my MH had only mentioned it then it would have saved me a whole lot of worry. So inconsiderate!


Oh, by the way, it does look super and I heard them saying that they will paint the gym tomorrow so I will send some pictures to you so you can see for yourself.

A Good Sunday




We have all had a good day in my house today. The weather wasn't very brilliant this morning, but the old dear decided to hang out her washing anyway, and she was very happy that she did 'cos my little weather man friend made it all better for us, and when my MH went away to the Hall to do crafty things, me and my DH decided to do some work in my garden and I liked being outside 'cos it was nice and warm and there wasn't any wind, so I was a very pleased little puss.


I saw my MH coming back so I just sat on the grass till her little car had stopped and when she got out I got a great big cuddle so I was even happier. She decided to do some strimming on the grass 'cos it started to rain yesterday before she could get it done and it was still good weather today so me and her just wandered about the garden making it look lovely again.


I asked her to take some pictures for you and you will be able to see all the chips that they put down and you will also see how I manage to save my adorable little feets from getting too sore on them.


I think I look particularly fetching and I am sure you will agree.

Saturday, 8 July 2017

I Do Wonder....


.... about my humans sometimes. We all had a fairly easy morning and I could see that the sky was not looking too promising so I decided that we would all have a very lazy day without any gardening, but oh dear me, I was wrong. So wrong.

When my DH was going out to feed the birdies, I heard the old dear asking him to get the lawn mower out and she would cut the grass just as soon as she hanged out the washing. Hmm! I did my very best by staring at her and then staring out of the window, but it made no difference at all. She was determined the washing was going out and the grass was getting cut! So, out we went.


Even my DH decided it wasn't going to rain and he started finishing off all the little jobs that he still had to do. I just shooked my adorable little head and left them to it while I had a snooze on my couch.

Well, it did rain---we all knew it would didn't we?--- but it stayed kind of dry until the lawn mower had cut all the grass and my MH was very pleased with herself. She didn't get to use the strimmer but if it is dry tomorrow she will finish off and I will ask her to take some pictures for you. As for the washing--- well, it had to come back in and go up on the pulley to get dried. If only she had listened to me. Sigh! Even my DH had to come in 'cos the rain finally did get too heavy to work outside.

I wonder if they will ever learn. ( I think I know the answer to that one! Hee hee)

Friday, 7 July 2017

All Done



Yippee! The chips are all done. My garden is looking lovely but my adorable little feets are not liking the feel of them right now. My DH says he is going to borrow a roller and make it so that they are not just so sore on my peedie paws so that will make me happy.

We have all been outside for most of today and I have had a very good time indeed. I watched what my humans were doing for a while and then I went away for lots of big explores on my own just doing what pussy cats are supposed to do and I liked that lots too. In fact, I was out so long after my dinner that the old dear began to get worried and while my DH was out looking for me, I was heading in the living room window and that made us all giggle.


My MH says that if it is a good day tomorrow she will cut the grass and then my garden will look beautiful, so I will help her to do that.

I am really liking all this good weather and I hope that we can get lots more.

Much Better


My day has been a great big whole bit better than yesterday and I have liked it lots and lots. Both my humans were with me for the en-tire day and you know how happy that makes me.


My MH had her housework to do and the old boy was outside quite a lot so I just nipped in and out of my house helping them both. Every time my MH finished what she was doing, she would come and find me and give me a big cuddle which made me very happy. I think she was making up for abandoning me yesterday and that suited me purrfectly!


In the afternoon, my MH came outside to help me and my DH spread some more chips. We are nearly finished and all my paths are looking good even though the chips hurt my adorable little feets, but there are other ways I can get to where I want so I am not complaining----MUCH!


I was able to help them both and I know my MH liked that 'cos her little legs were getting tired carrying lots of chips around my garden, but when I was beside her, she was happy and forgot about her little legs. Well, she knew they were still there, but they weren't sore. See?


I had a word with one of my cow friends as you can see. We had a good wee natter and then when I went round to the other side of my house I found a feather and I played with that for a long time, so I have had a very good day and I think tomorrow has to be just as good 'cos my little weather man friend told me the weather will be good again and my humans are going to finish all the chips.....

....with my help of course!

Wednesday, 5 July 2017

Sigh!


So, we all got up this morning. I had my breakfast and nipped out for a big explore. It was a lovely morning and I was very happy outside, so I stayed out for a long time, but what a shock I got when I finally did go home. There was nobody in my house!

I knew my DH had to go to the Cat Shop and my MH told me that she was going to Kirkwall, but I didn't realise I had been out so long. I didn't get my 'cheerio' cuddle. Sigh!


However, the weather was very good and the window was open so I played outside a lot until it was time for them to come back to me, and then I am sure you can guess what I got then? Yes, I got a ginormous 'hello' cuddle which I just loved.

My evening has been just normal with me nipping in and out and I am very happy again, so no more sighs--- for a wee while anyway!

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

Tuesday Chips


I have had a very good day. A very good day indeed, and I have loved it millions. My little weather man friend sended us some really lovely weather which meant that me and my humans could spend all day outside working with our new chips.


There is an awful lot of chips and they are making my paths quite lovely, but I have one big complaint and that is that they hurt my delicate, but very adorable little paws! I have to walk on the big stones so my little feets don't get pains in them and that is fine.


We were all out for nearly the whole day and I think my humans will need a very good sleep tonight! I am having a snooze just now, but since it is going to be another lovely evening, I will be going out to play later on and I am looking forward to that.


I am to be left on my own tomorrow as my MH is going to Kirkwall to meet her friends and of course the old boy has to go to the Cat Shop, but if the weather is like today then the window will be open for me and I will be able to get out to play as much as I want.


Then I s'pose we will all be shovelling chips again on Thursday if it's not raining.

Monday, 3 July 2017

And an even gooder Monday


Another brilliant day in in the life of this adorable little pussy cat. I am liking this lots and I shall share all my news with you.

The old boy went away to the Cat Shop, but he was so busy reading his newspaper and talking to my MH that he nearly missed the boat. Oops! My MH had to tell him to run fast and away he went leaving me and her to have a little natter before she started all her housework. I always like these times. They are as good as our little through the night time chats when she usually tells me she loves me millions and then we go back to sleep again.


I went out to play lots of times and it was really good fun but every wee while I would go home to see how the old dear was getting on and to get a cuddle and that was very nice too, but the best bit was in the afternoon after we had watched Andy winning his match 'cos my MH decided to go outside and start spreading some of the chips and I had to go out and help her. She liked that lots and we got a lot done, so my DH was very pleased with us when he comed home.

We are all going to do it again tomorrow if my little weather man friend sends me some good weather. My adorable little paws are all crossed 'cos it was very good fun being outside with my MH. Maybe she will to take some pictures for you.

Sunday, 2 July 2017

A Very Good Sunday



We have all had a very good day today even though the weather wasn't wonderful. Mind you, it was better today than it was during last night. I will tell you a wee secret. I was frightened last night with the noise the wind was making all round my house. It was roaring at me and I am sure my whole house shooked at one time and that's when I had to snuggle up very close to my MH. But that was to keep her safe, of course!


However, today was a bit better and I did get out to play for a while although I was still a wee bit worried that the naughty wind would get angry at me again, but it was much better so I was a bit happier. I went out to play a few times and then I helped my DH to move some of the chips and the old dear told me that if the weather is good tomorrow, then me and her are going to spread some more of them, so I have showed you a picture of them before we put them all down on the paths.


The other pictures are of yours truly and you might notice that one of them is me being in a place where I shouldn't have been. I didn't get into trouble, though. I never do--hee hee. The other pictures are of me resting on the grass and my MH says she thinks my little lugs are particularly adorable in one of them.


I of course don't argue with her, and I am sure you will agree too.

Saturday, 1 July 2017

Great Big Sigh


I don't know where my little weather man friend has gone, but he has taken all my good weather with him and left me with some winter, and I am not best pleased! The morning started off not too bad so I was able to go out for a very long prowl after my breakfast but when I comed home again, my little drop of milk was waiting for me and I lapped it all up. My MH says she likes to hear me drinking my milk 'cos she says it makes her happy. Bless!

My humans were both a wee bit busy today but they still had lots of time for me. The old boy was working in the garden till the rain and the wind arrived and then him and me went into our greenhouse for a while. My tomatoes are still doing better that his ones, but I haven't told him that those ones are only good 'cos I purr to them.


My MH decided to do some baking and I got a little bit of a pancake when she was finished and I liked that. I went outside quite a few times and I had another very long explore after my dinner but I need a little sleep now 'cos I am a wee bit tired. I have lots of places where I can have my snooze and on each of my beds there is a Squeak blanket and I make my humans smile lots of times when I burrow under these blankets to have my sleep 'cos all they can see is a little lump moving very gently up and down, and that is me.

I am even adorable when you can't see me! Hee hee
