Meet Diego

April 12th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Life

At last the new kitten is old enough to leave his mother and has come to fill our house with squeeks.  I have a 76-page election manifesto to read, understand, and familiarise myself with so may not be able to take the 200 photographs I want to take tonight, but I’m sure I will be […]

Luck of the Irish

March 21st, 2010 · 2 Comments · Life

After a thoroughly damp and miserable day yesterday the weather turned glorious for today’s St. Patrick’s Day parade in Crawley, a case of the luck of the Irish perhaps? This parade is one of the fixed points in the civic calendar and one of the events that celebrates the town’s multiculturalism, with participation not limited […]

Back from the vets

March 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on Back from the vets · Life

Chiquita had her long-awaited visit to the vets to get spayed yesterday and returned with a huge shaved patch and a buster collar to stop her ripping the stitches out. She is not impressed with the collar. Advice from the vets included a remark that the cat could be drowsy for a few days as […]

Clash of principles

February 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I had an interesting message on Flickr to day.  It was somebody asking if they can use one of my photos for something they are doing.  As all my photos are published under a Creative Commons licence there really is no need to ask, but I do appreciate the courtesy when people do.  This particular […]

Today has been a very sad and depressing one, as it saw us lose our second cat in just over a week, but this time it was totally unexpected.

Welcome to the family

January 25th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Life

Funny how these things happen.  Jayne went to a party on Saturday night and one of her sister’s friends was saying how she had a kitten they couldn’t keep any more…   Seems that they already had a dog, the kitten’s mother and the kitten’s older brother.  When the cat had a litter they were persuaded […]

A photographer not a terrorist

January 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on A photographer not a terrorist · Life

I forgot all about this event today.  Apart from sounding like a lot of fun it helps get the message across to those policemen who have been interpreting the law a tad overzealously.

No more pets

January 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Life

We decided a while a go that, for various reasons,  we would not have any more pets. After Ziggy died we weakened a little bit and so Rojo joined the family, but that was a momentary lapse of reason – somebody we knew had kittens who needed a home, we had a home… it seemed […]

I don’t want to complain, but…

January 6th, 2010 · Comments Off on I don’t want to complain, but… · Life, Work

Everything looks so clean and white outside so I don’t want to complain about the weather, but I think I may moan a bit about the timing of it.  It is only about 8 or 10 centimetres here at the moment.  Hardly Arctic conditions, though it has made our street impossible again.  This time our […]

Decorating the cats

December 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Decorating the cats · Life

Getting the car moving again coincided with Jayne getting paid, so today saw one or two rash purchases in town while I was working, leading to an entertaining few minutes at home this evening as we tried to get Scar and Rojo to model their new scarf and santa hat.
