    I don't like humans being in the bathroom when I am there but I am used to the company of cats. :D As you say, companionable!

    I remember multi-layered, multi-colored tulle petticoats that stuck out like hoop skirts. I remember one Palm or Easter Sunday morning when the children's choir sang -- after we put on our choir robes the robing room was full of half-petticoats standing around on their own.
    Can't imagine what they would have looked like under our robes -- but apparently the choirmistress could!

    There is too much casualness with this.

    If one more person pushes past me during this coronavirus pandemic creating bodily contact in a narrow shopping aisle, I am so ready to show them I will shove them forcibly with both my hands flat on their chest so they will go flying.

    I know this is so not a good idea.

    (I can do it because I have already done this, many years ago on the pavement to someone who deliberately came at me, to the shock of the other person, who fell over, then backed away from me and left. I immediately went to the police station and told them what I had done. And described the person. They laughed, they knew who it was, told me to go home, and I would be fine, and I never heard any more about it).



    I do not want to do this again.

    Oh my goodness, each one I looked at was funnier than the last. Does a snorkel work better than a scouring sponge or coconut shell I wonder?

    Yesterday the KittenCat seemed to see her reflection in my phone's black screen. So I found a video-for-cats on YouTube and held the phone for her to look at. It was fascinating to see the moment when she saw the squirrel and the birds onscreen, and to watch her eyes follow their movements. I could not see the screen from where I was holding the phone for her, and I was wondering what she was seeing that made her suddenly turn her head and look off beyond the phone screen. A couple of times she reached out towards it with a paw.

    When she finally got bored and moved away, I watched the video and realized that different birds kept darting into the scene and then darting away just as suddenly, and those must have been the sudden movements she was following. I really enjoyed watching her watch the video, and it was nice to have some time when I knew she wasn't bored.

    I think I will order a phone holder for her:

    This is the one she is watching this morning. I am as intrigued watching her as she is watching the video.

    good afternoon all :)

    4.3 today

    extra run by mr gee into town today to take mum to get her pension as she was threatening to go on the bus :banghead: (but it's two weeks! - don't think she trusts the government not to snatch it back :hilarious: ) I don't think most of us would have expected a trip like that to feel so extra stressful so quickly :sorry:. Safely back (we hope!)

    Loving all the humour here, I have offered to sacrifice my underwear in service as mr gee's comfort mask, he was not amused :D looks like I shall be getting my sewing machine out.

    @OldButBold hope today brings some calm and rest :)

    virtual hugs for all friends, human or otherwise, who would enjoy one :) hope your day is treating you kindly.

    today's catch up art offerings -
    no 1 is a slightly smaller than A5 pencil drawing of one of mum's ornaments with some added watercolour, done on shiny paper (back of a page from last years calendar :hilarious:) watercolour on shiny paper, just no!
    upload_2020-4-3_15-46-30.jpeg

    no 2 is on A4 typing paper, a drawing of a Christmas teddy stuffed toy done with a pack of children's coloured pencils from Home Bargains (took about 2 hours!).

    My painting for today. in the SketchClubApp
    Been working on this for nearly four hours now.
    Using one finger, it is therapeutic and is like moving acrylic paints around...

    I am 16 here, and I used an old transparency to work with, and that has gone a bit funny. I don't have a viewer any more to look at it properly...

    I don't look like this now :)
