05/10/22 – Peeping Tom… cat

This is the local cat we affectionately and creatively call… Ginger Cat. Here he is on our fence not knowing I was spying on him from inside the porch as we were about to head out for a walk. He soon spotted me in the corner of his eye and scarpered off sharpish! They’re allContinue reading “05/10/22 – Peeping Tom… cat”

30/08/22 – Desk shopping!

After a quick post-work workout and dinner it was off to IKEA for me and Nic as I finally begin to bite the bullet on buying a new desk (a standing one!) to make my working from home life a bit nicer. I’ve decided to kit out my office a bit to make it reallyContinue reading “30/08/22 – Desk shopping!”

23/08/22 – A young visitor

We had this sleepy guy nap in our garden this afternoon. I accidentally tapped the window with my camera which then woke him, but it meant I got this lovely inquisitive photo. I do hate the foxes here, as they scream and poop everywhere, but to see them simply napping or chilling out is alwaysContinue reading “23/08/22 – A young visitor”

17/08/22 – On the cat walk

Today was a very long day at work… 12 hours long to be precise. We finished the day with a nice hour-long walk before dinner though to decompress and chat about both of our long days. Though it’s been long, it was a really productive and enjoyable day. But right now, I’m exhausted and veryContinue reading “17/08/22 – On the cat walk”

22/07/22 – Spot the bird…

I finally got out of the house today for a lovely hour-long walk with Nic after work. We’ve been a bit couped up trying to get back into a rhythm. We’ll get there I’m sure. We did meet this lovely guy on the walk though. A little parakeet eating the fruit off this tree. WeContinue reading “22/07/22 – Spot the bird…”

23/06/22 – Creepy crawlies

Started today off with a one mile swim (as if I can say that now!) Then after work I walked down to Crystal Palace for a massage and spotted this humongous beetle on the ground. It was seriously about 4cm long! No thank you. I think I’d cry if it got into our house… That’sContinue reading “23/06/22 – Creepy crawlies”

08/06/22 – More cat friends

I was a bit grumpy today as I think I have a huge post holiday come down after we’re now officially back from both New York and Ireland. I need more plans and fun things to look forward to. Next on the list is mum visiting though which should be really fun. We did goContinue reading “08/06/22 – More cat friends”

11/05/22 – Another day, another cat

We went on a lovely post dinner walk tonight after the rain had finally cleared and the sun was starting to set. This grumpy cat made me laugh as we walked past, “keep on walking…” it seemed to say, and that we did. I think because it’s been raining all day all the neighborhood catsContinue reading “11/05/22 – Another day, another cat”

10/05/22 – Spot the cat

Another cheeky 5k run this morning! Not bad but also not great. My legs were so tired for the hill and I just couldn’t seem to garner any energy back after that point. So I’m now going to take a couple days of rest before getting back into it again. After work Nic and IContinue reading “10/05/22 – Spot the cat”
