Clearly, she cannot be bothered to do anything else about that fact at the moment. I am so tempted to pull on that tail right now!
We are off on a long weekend trip to Belgium early tomorrow morning – 2 hours to Brussels on the Eurostar and then a short connecting train to Ghent. We’re hoping to explore Ghent, Bruge, and Antwerp, and maybe even make it to the tram that runs along the coast of the North Sea. I won’t be surprised if some beer and chocolate are involved at some point too!
The cats have been causing a few problems lately, mostly because with the lighter mornings they’ve decided that 4:30 is the PERFECT time for running around the house like mad kitties. And they’ve been using part of the carpet by the stairs as a scratching post, which is not a good thing. So I did what any sensible person does, and threw money at the problem, and now I’m hoping it goes away.
We bought the kitties a new plaything. I’ve variously heard it called a “cat-tree” or a “kitty-condo”, but personally I think nothing short of “feline palace” will do.
There’s only one slight problem.
Do you know the feeling when you’ve gone shopping for new clothes, and you find a great pair of jeans, and you decide to be “optimistic” and buy them one size smaller than you really need, because obviously that will be the motivation you need to lose about 10 pounds … But then you get home and try to put them on and it’s like stuffing a sausage casing … ?? Well, even if won’t admit to knowing that feeling, Amaretto does.
Well, I’m afraid my “feline palace” is not “jumbo-kitty” sized. Her arse is definitely falling out!!
We’re off! Tomorrow morning we catch a bright and early train to Gatwick, and then fly off to Copenhagen. We’re spending Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning in Denmark, and then catching the train Saturday afternoon over to Stockholm. Then we’ve got Saturday evening, Sunday, and Monday morning in Stockholm … flying back to London on Monday evening.
Alex has done a ton of preparation, and he’s super excited … as am I! We’ll take lots of pictures (as usual) … but you probably won’t hear from us until next week.
Hope you all have a good weekend!
