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?!

Another year older and wiser?! Nope, not for Gizmo…

Happy Birthday to Gizmo!! Somehow, he has made it to his 3rd birthday in one piece!? My wallpaper and curtains aren’t lucky enough to say the same thing?!
