    @dunelm thank you for posting those lovely photos. I especially like the gate nestled among the trees and shrubs -- very Tolkien-ish. I want to open it, lead out a Hobbit pony, and gallop off across that glorious green grass.

    I used to enjoy mowing our lawn. Part of the joy was being out in the sunshine helping my dad with the work -- hedge-clipping, lawn-mowing, edge-trimming, and part was the feel of the sun and the wonderful fragrance of new-mown grass and hedge clippings, and the refreshing chill of tall glasses of iced tea on the backs of our necks and down our throats.

    I'm picturing Frankie and Dennis together. :D

    BTW where is @DJC3 these days, I wonder? People come and go but rarely talk of Michelangelo ...

    I was wondering where she was...possibly busy with the family & Dennis?...honestly Frankie is so sweet but a full time commitment I am thinking about getting a dog at some point in the new year but not sure I have the stamina for a puppy Saskia...maybe a rescue one but not rushing into it...Frankie's dad came to pick him up...he got so excited...I do miss him meanwhile Churchill is relieved to have his house back to himself.

    I didn't have the stamina for a puppy when I was 20-something! :) So with the help of a kindly cat-loving friend and two co-workers who just happened to have litters of kittens ready to be weaned, I was converted. I still love dogs too, but I wouldn't want to dog-sit even for a day. You are a really, REALLY good friend! :)

    I love dogs Saskia...I had two dogs & two cats at one point & of course I am missing 'Plumpy' so it was good to have Frankie here...as I get older I don't have the patience or stamina for a puppy so five days was a reasonable spell to manage...and my friends who have two young children work so hard they hadn't had time away just the two of them for years...so it was worth the effort.

    Hey I’m home! @SaskiaKC and @Bubbsie I PM’d (well I would lol) @DJC3 and she has repetitive strain type injury in her shoulder (she mentioned it recently) and even texting is causing pain so she is just listening in for now. Wishing you a speedy recovery @DJC3 and sending hugs. I loved reading about Frankie and his exuberance. @gennepher your garden swing is beautiful..so glad for you and Popeye to have such a nice relaxing place! Excited to b picking up Bobs and Daisy early tomo.

    @PenguinMum -- I just heard the KittenCat outside the door talking to the mailman. A few moments earlier I'd heard her purring an old mountain tune:

    Roses love sunshine
    Kitties love mice
    And reunions with our humans
    Are ever so nice

    -- and I thought I heard her deliver these instructions to the mailman:

    Please take this letter
    And send it by post
    Send it in care of
    The Cattery Host

    I think I forgot to post this morning. Since I get the MiaoMiao readings every 5 minutes I don’t really take a fasting blood sugar reading but at 7am I was 6.7. I think the UTI infection and antibiotics are having their fun with my sugar levels, and my poor stomach. Still working on my Christmas pudding this was it this morning, and as of this evening I have 11 of the 20 brown triangles completed.

    UTIs are miserable and antibiotics aren't much better. I am so sorry you are having to deal with them. Hopefully the latter will clear up the former quickly.

    Every time I read about this mysterious MiaoMiao I picture something like this:

    Thanks SaskiaKC, I am on preventative medication and that’s really cut down the frequency, it’s my first UTI since April.

    This is my MiaoMiao over the top of my libre sensor, I’ve had a carer say it looks like I’ve got a security tag on my arm like they use to protect clothing in shops.
