Su’s birthday dinner at mom’s

Today Su had her birthday! I gave her a fitbit watch and some other bits, and we went to my mom’s house for lunch. As often happens, my Dad and Ailz picked us up on their way up and we all went together. My sister Alice couldn’t make it as her kids were sickly, so this visit was the first time we’ve done for ages with only adults! It meant a lot of adult conversation over the delicious meal of lamb shank: Nationalism, Trump, Brexit and whether facts/reality are going to sally forth some time soon and vanquish these overheated …

Cat queue

PS – A company has approached me about paying 100 pounds to have a link on my blog. I guess I still have some Alexa ranking juice from the haikyo days, and they are hoping to draft behind that. 100 …

Sleepy cats

Here’s a couple of sleepy cat photos. This is Lincoln. He’s a total player, when not asleep. If he had his equipment still he’d be a threat to all the girl cats on the block 😉 This is Churchill- decidedly not a player. He is very sweet, scared to go outside, and would be a poet in another life. He’s definitely a one-woman man.
