Mostly about cats and cleaning.


 Last week was a cleaning up week, mainly because of my sweet little cat Leeroy, she bought me a nice mouse gift while I was on the phone to my sister, I didn't notice so her idea was if you don't want it I will just let it go but I just didn't want it to go die under the lounges so I moved them to check it out and well you may as well give it all a good clean and rearrange the room, no mouse was found hope it found its way outside.
 This is now my sit and doze in front of the tellie chair, the beer fairy says I don't snore if sitting up so he thinks it is a good idea.


 I often pain my cats,

 I covered this chair in the corner, the other black one I will cover too the stuff they use to cover them wears and tears apart so I will get a few years more out of them and they are less sticky in summer.
 This room also got a good clean as Bo Peek uses it when he stays over but he is away in NZ visiting family for a couple of weeks.
 Also my painting and sewing room.
 My son and daughter in law stayed last night.
 They bought me lots of chocolate and other nice eatables for mothers day as I will not see them for a few weeks now.

 Drummy comb is very pale at the moment l looked it up on the internet, could be caused by lack of iron or poor health as she is getting on a bit, maybe old age too, but I've been giving her meat as the snails and insects are in short supply coming into winter, this is a lamb bone which she is very fond of .





 A bit of  a mess in the dolls house Leeroty was checking it out maybe the mouse was there visiting the dolls.

 My loungeroom in disarray
 Here is the little honey,
I watched a show about cats the other day it said you must blink to greet them and never stare, well this one stares all the time and when I  blinked at her she just stared back.



 But this is just a evil look, I wonder what I did to deserve it.

My Dad.........

 It is ANZAC day today, always reminds me of my dad.
My mum and dad met because of the war, she wrote to him when he was overseas and when he came home they met, this was their first date as I understand it, a street photographer took their photo.
My dad got his nickname in the war they called him Jerry he had it all his life, my mum often called him that, I said did you change sides and he said no he looked more german than most of the germans I think you will agree.    
Here I am as a little tike with my dad.

A day out and a night at the ballet.

This friday my daughter and her partner and I went to the ballet at Sydney Opera House of course we couldn't take photos but I did take a few on the way and coming home. 
This is Newtown, tiny tiny houses
And tiny front yards

My ticket.

And a picture out of a ballet book I have, as no photos were allowed and rightly so.

The old hospital across the road from my friends place, we have been watching the progress of its of it's transformation in to units the original building was heritage protected so they couldn't just knock it down and start again.
I worked there once when I lived very close by, it was ideal but I only lasted two days, it was more a old peoples home than a hospital and a lot of people were suffering form dementure, I lasted two days it was a sad place to work and I was just not made of the right stuff, I admire nurses their job is not easy, the matron was a lovely person and so were all the staff.

Great fence made to fit the tree.
And water bubbling up from the ground maybe a water main ready to burst.
Don't ask me what this bloke was doing, maybe singing a song in sign language my daughter said he was dancing but he had a crowd there so he was doing something right.

Going home after the ballet from the top of the Opera House steps, my there are a lot of steps.
Always get a picture in of our bridge.,

Dead ants but no cord.

 There has been a lot of talk about the harm sugar does in our diets all I can say is there was only a drop or two of maple syrup in this bottle but I had forgotten about it but the ants found it and made the best of it but they all came to a sticky end.
 Much searching was done to find the recharge cord for my screwdriver tool so far no luck lots of cords but none fit so maybe I will just toss the lot as I have no idea what they belong to.

 But I did find all the words to Advance Australia  Fair, usually only the first verse is sung,  so now I can learn the second verse.

It always end in a bit of a clean up when looking for things.

A study in sleep

It was Wednesday and the  hottest day we had in autumn ever and Leeroy is just so tired, hours of sleeping, it was about 36c and not a breath of air.




Well maybe a bit of cleaning.

Four days.

On Friday I went to spend the night at my Daughters place.
We usually go out for breakfast they have lots of cafe's around the Petersham area, this one is very good.
And you can take your dog too if you eat outside but we left Angus at home today.
Her partner checking his phone I do like his beard.
I like the houses, around here so I always take a few pictures.
 Came home on Saturday and on Sunday we introduced Pidge to Dericks cage but it has no door as Pidge flies free, he seems to like it there, he is a messy man at the moment all lost feathers and shafts for the new ones.  
 He really checked it out but will he move in.



Monday was Bingo at the club, won prizes well everyone won except the slightly crazy  Scottish lady.
 This is a friend of Mavis.

And this is Mavis she had her hair permed today amazing lady for 99 so she didn't go to bingo today but has her hair done nearby, back to the club for lunch and a bit of a flutter on the pokies.

The last two weeks.......
