Gizmo and I have had a busy few weeks. Giz has been taunted on a frequent basis by the pesky squirrels, and he regularly sits on the kitchen window ledge; surveying his garden, waiting for the squirrel to return. On several occasions, Gizmo has been within a whisker of catching a squirrel!? Much to Mr … Continue reading A nice relaxing bath…!?
"Feel the fear, and climb the tree anyway... life is too short to waste opportunities for happiness..." Gizmo, 2017.
Gizmo and I have recently had a bit of an unscheduled break from blogging. I think it was a combination of my busy schedule with work, and personally being very run down. I guess it happens to everyone at some stage, but I just couldn't face turning on my laptop. Apologies to Gizmo fans...! I hope 'normal' service … Continue reading ‘Normal’…whatever that is?!
As you may have read in the previous blog post, I have been working away from home for almost 10 days, leaving Gizmo in the capable hands of my Dad. I have been phoning each evening to get daily updates on Gizmos adventures (and to check my Dad was coping with Gizmos demands), but I … Continue reading Welcome Home… or NOT!?
I hate going away. Whether for work or pleasure, I always dread going away. I've been unlucky in my life when I go away, bad things have happened and it's always reminded me that I'm happier at home. But today I have to go away for work, and it will be almost 10 days before … Continue reading Blissful Ignorance!?
I never have any valentines day expectations, and this year was no different! I'm one of those humans that doesn't look for big romantic gestures (which is lucky, as I would only be disappointed!!) but Gizmo seemed to take it upon himself to give me a surprise gift this year!? I guess he appreciates all the … Continue reading Gizmos Valentines Surprise…?!
Yesterday was exactly a year since Gizmo came into my life. I can’t believe how fast the last year has gone!? When Gizmo first arrived, he was 5 months old, and so scared that he used to hide in the dark under the dining room table if he heard a noise, or if anyone dared … Continue reading Gizmos Gotcha Anniversary
I seem to have a problem at the moment. For the last week, I’ve been woken up at least an hour early every day? I get up for work at 5am, but recently, I’ve been consistently woken up at 4am… Unfortunately for me, I can’t seem to reset the ‘timer’ as there are NO buttons … Continue reading Persistent Alarm Malfunction…?
As you may have read in a previous blog post, our Christmas celebrations were dampened by Gizmos ill health and hospitalisation at Penmellyn Veterinary Hospital. (Don't worry, thanks to the wonderful veterinary team, Giz is feeling MUCH better now and making good progress at home). Before Christmas, you may remember that Gizmo wrote a letter to Santa … Continue reading Gizmo Got His Christmas Wish…
Its been a stressful festive period in my house. Not because of the pressure of Christmas, but because Gizmo, my beloved (and usually highly naughty) one year old cat, was quite poorly. And how did I know he was ill?! Well, he was being too well behaved; he hadn’t stripped my wallpaper or climbed my curtains … Continue reading Not the festive period we hoped for…
