“Snow Day – NO WAY!!?” Yells Gizmo

So, as I shared with you all yesterday, Cornwall has snow. To be fair, compared to other places in the world, our snowfall is pretty pathetic, but as usual, our dusting of snow brought almost the entire county to a standstill. People abandoned their cars. Kids were forced to sleep in their schools. Basically, it resembled ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ film but without the advanced … Continue reading “Snow Day – NO WAY!!?” Yells Gizmo

What a difference a day makes…?!

Yesterday, whilst the rest of the country was winging about snow, us folk in Cornwall had glorious sunshine! Fast forward 24hours and we now have the white stuff too…and Gizmo is not impressed. Giz does not like snow. Rain. Hail. Basically, unless it’s sunny with a gentle breeze, Gizmo is NOT amused!! He has just forced himself to go out for the quickest wee possible, … Continue reading What a difference a day makes…?!

Blimey, I’ve just realised I didn’t blog about our Christmas?! Gizmo (thankfully) left the Christmas tree in one piece this year, but it did get nibbled and pawed a few times…?! Christmas day was a quiet one – apart from the hilarity of watching Gizmo tear into his gift and open it all by himself…there were bits of schredded wrapping paper EVERYWHERE! To see the … Continue reading Oh my, doesn’t time fly!!

Gizmos ‘Purr-fect’ Portrait…

As regular readers will know, Gizmo is quite a character. He’s always up to something; it’s usually hilarious but always naughty?! I’d been thinking of getting an artist to paint Gizmo for quite a long time, but I wanted to find the right person – For this portrait, I didn’t just want a ‘pretty’ cat painting; I wanted someone who could translate Gizmos quirks onto … Continue reading Gizmos ‘Purr-fect’ Portrait…

Neighbours: Are you missing a shoelace?!

A few days ago, I found myself apologising to my neighbours… I found a shoelace in my kitchen one morning, and it doesn’t belong to any member of my household?! It’s quite a distinctive shoelace; black, with a knot in the middle and tattered chewed ends, but I fear the chewed ends may be Gizmos fault, so apologies in advance to whichever neighbour it belongs … Continue reading Neighbours: Are you missing a shoelace?!
