I have a new man in my life...

yes I do... and he has moved in!!
He does have expectations, he doesn't pay rent,  I provide food and drink, and he demands my sole attention. He likes me to stroke him and play with him and his boys toys... sometimes he likes to chase me up and down the stairs...he keeps anti social hours and doesn't come to bed until 4 or 5am...when he does he gets up close and personal and his facial hair tickles a lot..
He loves to cuddle and snuggle and loves a morning lay in...I think he loves me cos he purrs a lot, and is a sucker for a good rub on his tummy, in fact he just rolls over and takes it all...what more could a girl want?

A real man? nah I'm all done with that. 
Meet Monty... 9 weeks old. I took him in last week and his owners now can't look after him. So what would you do take him to a refuge? Give him away to a good home? Or keep him? Yeah yeah, l know, but I couldn't resist...

  1. Huzzah. I am a cat fanatic and congratulate you on your new relationship.

    So glad you saved the dear puss. Good luck and much happiness to both of you.

  2. Ha! Ha! General montgomery is looking very regal. Purrring is much quieter than barks and the poops are smaller. I'm quite afraid he's claimed you as won territory. May as well surrender

  3. I'm sure he'll be far more reliable than most males of certain other species!
    And I love the way their fur sticks out when they are that age.
    May you have many happy years together.

  4. I'm no pet lover at all... but he is very very cute!

  5. He's more than cute. He is adorable. Hoping you'll be very happy together.

  6. He's adorable and far better than a real man - there's no hidden agenda and the love is unconditional! May you be very happy together.

  7. We just took in a new female in our household too about 3-4 weeks ago now. A sweet little tiger-striped kitten with the cutest face and eyes, very fluffy fur and docile personality -except around our dog, Sammy, who she loves to torment into playing with her. (He's used to cats doing that to him and responds nicely to her then.) Tavia is supposed to be staying her temporarily until my older daughter can convince her fiance that she would be a wonderful addition to their house but I rather suspect that Tavia is ow here to stay as I doubt very seriously that daughter's boyfriend will give an inch on bringing a cat home! (And by this time, I doubt my other daughter, the grandkids and I -or the dog too -would want to part with this sweet thing!) Glad to hear you got a good and loving companion with Monty!

  8. I would have done exactly the same thing! He's irresistible. Just hope he doesn't lead you a merry dance! Lol

  9. Ah! Sazzie...I agree that is the cutest cat. Monty now has your heart, your house, and all your spare time.

  10. He looks adorable! I predict a long and happy association for the two of you. More photos in the future please, so we can all enjoy watching him grow.

  11. He is absolutely adorable! I am not even a cat person and I think he is soooo cute! Such character! He can replace a man any day! Good for you Saz!

  12. He's adorable. He'll be a wee handful.. black and white cats almost always are. I believe they're particularly intelligent for some unexplained reason. Just a theory, of course but it's what I've noticed over many years and many cats. Enjoy him.. I'm sure you will. He's a little sweetie.

  13. he's awfully cute and since he cuddles he can be forgiven for not paying rent ;)

  14. He is lovely. We lost one almost his twin 3 days ago--he was a year old. Very smart, very loving, and talkative! Enjoy!

  15. Your comment form says 'I will walk a mile in your shoes...' So I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about how it must be to be in your shoes (and Rick's) at the moment and am sending you my love and fondest thoughts.
    P.S. You got a mention on my blog the other day and I have also suggested we join Fhina for a virtual coffee in Paris. I'll pay!

  16. Ah! That brought back many happy memories of "Jasper". Black with four white "spats" and a white bib. He was born in the industrial part of Sheffield. I would share my lunch with him. Whilst his mother and siblings were very shy - he was pushy and brash. One day when he was about ten weeks old. I picked him up - no hiss or spit. Sat on my knee and folded his front feet and started to purr. This year we lost the old boy, many stories I could tell. But some three weeks short of thirty he finally exhausted all of his 99 lives.

    He was the image of your "Wee Man"


  17. I'm pretty allergic to cats but I can see why he stole your heart. He's too cute for words.

  18. saz, i just got the note from suldog that you asked him to pass along. i can't imagine how difficult this time is for you. please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  19. That is one whiskery fellow! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…
