Let’s be honest, many of us humans dislike Mondays…. But when you share your life with Gizmo, Mondays CAN be fun?! For example, today Gizmo has enjoyed playing outside in the Cornish sunshine, looking for squirrels on the bird table… And Gizmos Human has evicted the eighth mouse from our house in the past week… 🙄 Thank goodness for our amazing humane traps!!? I wonder … Continue reading Monday Madness…?!
Last night was another of those nights, where my sleep was interrupted due to a certain Mr Gizmo bringing home yet another ‘very much alive gift’. When I got up this morning, Gizmo was asleep in the kitchen, so I guessed he was guarding the latest mystery gift…whatever it may be. This is sometimes a good indicator of where the mystery gift is…but very often, … Continue reading Gizmo and the MASSIVE mouse…
Almost two years ago, I wrote about Gizmos habit of following me to the bathroom. I would love to say that two years on, he has grown out of this, and he no longer feels the need to supervise me when I go into the bathroom, but if anything, his behaviour has got worse?! Especially in recent weeks… It has become normal for me to … Continue reading How I long to go for a pee in peace…
Gizmo and I hope that everyone reading this had a lovely Christmas day! I just wanted to tell you a few things about our Christmas gifts!? I woke up at 3am thanks to my body clock being sure I still needed to start work at 4am…but at least Gizmo came into my room briefly to keep me company until I fell asleep again! I was … Continue reading Christmas Gifts!?
Gizmo fans living in the UK will have recently experienced a heatwave. It was unbelievably hot; day and night for about a week. Not something any of us Brits or kitties are used to!! (Normal weather has now resumed…as I write this, I can hear the rain bouncing off the roof of my house!?). Gizmo struggled in the heat, as I’m sure many other kitties … Continue reading Gizmo needs his sleep!?
I have a feeling that disaster is only a short time away in my house. Of course, this imminent disaster will be TOTALLY Gizmos fault, and I have almost resigned myself to the fact that it IS going to happen, it’s just a case of when. I’m convinced chaos WILL occur and many tears WILL be cried (as usual, they will be my tears, not … Continue reading A Disaster Waiting to Happen…?!
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 will be resumed soon!? In the blogging holiday, I found … Continue reading ‘Normal’…whatever that is?!
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 I return. Gizmo is in the capable hands of my … 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 love and affection I’ve shown him over that past 12 … Continue reading Gizmos Valentines Surprise…?!
