Water pistol.

Unless of course it's your cat in which case train it to use a special litter tray outside.

Around here the  charity shops are closing and the buildings stand empty :/

Feral cats

I've never heard of farm cats (or ferral) harming lambs and a flock of chickens will put a cat quite firmly in its place!

Quite the winter wonderland yesterday as I drove my father around the green lanes to help him with his footpath warden duties.


Somewhere under there is the main road. Beautiful although several cars naturally made a right hash of it; if only they'd get out the car and use the grit bin on the ice skating rink they were creating. Hey ho. 

Exciting news people; guess who has YET ANOTHER new boss. Shall we place our bets on this one? I'm thinking I won't even see him until the end of January.

Which is good as now I'm ignoring the whole idea of waiting for permission we're getting stuff done. We're in the Tesco carrier bag token charity things next month to raise month to create going home hampers for people who have been in hospital and need assistance. I don't think we'll win but second would be nice. Poor Worksop they'll be sick of the sight of me on my publicity wagon. Determined to leave things better than how I found them regardless.

Day off today so it's household chores and 32kg of raw meat to cut up to make dog meals. 

Oh and I need to make another Christmas cake: this one tastes fine but I don't think it cooked properly.

 You have to test two! Only testing one means it could have just been a fluke!

Oh Chicky what a view!

Somehow I don't think my office will be as inspiring today! Still; it's dry and warm so let's look positive.

I'm attending a Christmas fundraiser at one of the hospital wards many of our clients come from this evening - they're raising money to buy the beds televisions. Sounds simple but they've all got to fundraise to pay for all the installation  / wiring / etc. so No easy task. They're hoping to do a Christmas market outside but the wind right now is making me think it'll be more thick waterproofs and scarfs than funny costumes.

Has it ever occurred to you that when you look at the moon it's the same moon that was seen by Michaelangelo. Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale and Margaret Thatcher, and all those people are now dead?  Don't look at the moon! The moon is killing people!

 And the water! Look how many people that drank water have since died. Most without a footnote about their lives.

 You're cutting it fine but you might just be okay!

Some people like to throw themselves out of planes

Others like to like raw cake mix.
