After Auntie Dawn hinted to look up Galileo after my Think Piece on The Moon, I began to understand something else I had been considering, namely why the night is the same length as the day twice a year. Coincidentally, my piece last week about The Moon was at the autumn version of this “Equinox” as it is called. I am going to cheat a bit and, by the magic of blogging, set this post to be published at the Spring Equinox. Continue reading “Equal night and day time”
It’s six months today since Georgie died. That’s six of your months, it’s the equivalent of seven years in my lifespan. Its a long time in anyone’s language. The leaves have all turned gold and brown, or fallen off the trees already and winter is coming. We used to cuddle up to each other in winter. Well we’d cuddle up anytime we felt like a bit of company or warmth, to be fair. Continue reading “Remembering George”
We havent been out on the grass for ages, but Mummy has occasionally brought some in for us. Its usually been a bit on the damp side, so I suppose she knows it’s not right for us to go outside and eat it. But I think today is the official start of winter, since she gave us the dried grass – Readigrass – as a treat. Continue reading “Mmm Readigrass”
We’ve just had a lovely evening with mummy being cuddled and watching scarey movies on the box in the corner. I dont really like scarey movies but Mummy hid my eyes from the scariest bits, and the music was nice. It was all about animals at the north pole, or the south pole and how they got through the summer. The scariest ones were the snowy owls because they ate lemmings which looked small and furry and very much like us! Continue reading “Cuddles and stuff”
The reason why Mummy went to London yesterday was to go to a workshop to find out more about getting her stories about us published. She said that she got really encouraged by it all until the last session which left her feeling really depressed. Anyway there are a number of things she needs to do to our stories including taking them off here as they are going to be edited so they won’t be the same as these versions. Depending on what she does about publishing them, they may go on her authoring website instead, but I’ll keep you posted on that. Continue reading “The case of the disappearing stories”
The radio usually turns itself on in the morning but it didn’t this morning and I wondered why not. Mummy has gone to London for a workshop for writers. She’s trying to learn more about how to get our stories published. Although I know she’s working on trying to make them light the fire. I’m not sure why, but she says she’s making them ready for kindle and when I don’t know words I look them up here and it says kindle is about lighting fires, so I don’t know what Mummy’s up to, but then there’s nothing new there.
Anyway the radio has come on now. Even though it’s dark as in evening dark, not morning dark (when it was coming on till mummy changed the clocks). It’s all very confusing. I’ll just eat this carrot she hid under the hay. Mmm there are some herbs here too. And the hay carrot Auntie Dawn gave us. Yummy.
We’ve had a lovely time with Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne. They arrived last week and left today. They’ve been out with Mummy most days but they always remembered to say hello to us in the morning and we sometimes had morning cuddles as well as evening ones. Mummy took them to see where some of our stories are set as well. Here are some pictures of their stay.
We’re all excited because Mummy went out yesterday afternoon leaving us with loads of food and hay and she hasn’t come back yet. Now we don’t usually like that but this time we know she’s gone to collect Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne from the airport! They arrived this morning, hopefully. And Mummy went to stay with Uncle James so she could be nice and rested and meet them properly.
I’m really looking forward to spending time with Auntie Dawn. I expect I’ll go all shy when I finally meet her. She’s been promising smooches and things. I hope I like them. Victor has been getting lots of rest and practising his ‘adorable’ face when he thinks nobody’s looking. Hec keeps looking at us and asking if she’s here yet. We’ve been saying, no, not till next week or whatever, but now we’re saying, no, not till later! I don’t know what Humphrey’s doing. He got a bit embarrassed that he had to have some poo cut out of his long coat yesterday morning, but I told him that it’s all right, Saku is a Sheltie and Auntie Dawn is looking forward to smoothing him.
Only a few more hours now!
We have some strange stuff in our cage. Well, not peculiar, although it is a little, but unusual. No, not our normal stuff at all. It’s much softer, bigger pieces and very white. I didn’t want to step on it at first and walked on the megazorb as much as possible to avoid disturbing it. Vic just walked through it as usual though and said it was very nice. I did tread on it a little when Mummy gave us our breakfast, but I tried not to mess it up until Vic insisted it was his turn in the snuggle-tunnel and I had to go and sit in my grassy hutch, which was on top of the strange stuff. Continue reading “Strange stuff”
Well, it could be any of us and the beanstalk really. We’ve been having either beans or a bean leaf with our breakfast for some time now. They come in fresh from the garden and although they are very nice I’m beginning to get fed up with beans. Mummy says they’ll run out soon then there won’t be any more till next summer which is a long time ahead. So we should enjoy them while we can. Continue reading “Vic and the Beanstalk”
