Joy to the nose

When you’re feeling down there’s nothing like a fragrant pick-me-up to, well, pick you up. So when I received this fruity number from The Body Shop the other day I sniffed away my blues.

Horse (and sheep) days – Chloe and Freda

This past week I’ve had the privilege of looking after the most wonderful horse and sheep duo while their carer has been away. I wasn’t sure it was a good idea, as I’m still hurting over the loss of my wonderful boy John, but I did it anyway. It goes without saying I’ve fallen totally in love with the two of them.

Pets in plant pots - oh yes

Oh my goodness, I know it's been ages but life got in the way. Not in a good way, more in a work-I-have-bills-to-pay way, and despite my best intentions I didn't have the energy or the inclination after 10 hours a day at the computer.

It seems though that the laugh may be on me. I hope to God I'm wrong, but it's looking very much like I'm not going to get the money owed to me for the work I did, that I will have to chase the company that owes me through the courts and even after that, even with a court judgement against them, they may not pay. How fair is that? It's a rant for another day - 'Does freelancer mean skivvy these days and where do companies get off treating us like something on the bottom of their shoe'.

And soooooooo in the spirit of not letting it get to me and not depressing you, dear readers (that's if I've got any left after my prolonged absence) I present to you....

Kitty in a plant pot and Bunny in a plant pot. I don't know why but this is the favoured seat for both Rosie Raditt (our cat) and Cookie AKA Mrs Bun (our rabbit).

The two of them sit in plant pots for hours at a time, awake or asleep, it doesn't seem to matter. Still, as long as they're happy. Have you seen the size of her ruff - she is as big as the cats and they run away from her. Does anybody else have pets with strange quirks? Let me know, I'd love a laugh xx
