Nuclear war ? No Problem We Are British And We Have Tea

I drink tea , I love tea and when I am not drinking tea I am thinking about tea and I even it times of adversity people have always though of tea . Threat of nuclear way well jolly make sure we have tea and a source of hot water it won't matter that you can't go outside for a million years just as long as us British have the tea we will be ok .

I love cats as well and I've written about cats and tea too , in fact I writing this now drinking tea . I’ve a habit of saying where and I want to go and I’ve a habit of if I want something I’ll get it 

“ Sod it if I want a cream tea I’ll jolly well have it “

Tea I love tea.

"Happiness is just a tea cup away "

Happiness Is Just A Tea Cup Away

Sometimes I just speak my mind but always with politeness ever so much politeness and I wonder because I choose to speak my mind if that perplexes people. People always have a concept of how you are how you should be how you should act. But if I have a cup of tea with a friend and cake then I really can be myself with no filters and that’s refreshing because people really do like me for who I am .

I had tea with a friend and I was brought coffee by mistake and I nearly just settled with it just to be polite.But I was encouraged to speak up speak out and go for my beloved cup of tea and I was jolly glad I did. If I don’t get my tea levels I do go feral as I have to keep my tea levels topped up.

“happiness is just a tea cup away “

Tea I love tea be it virtual and or real tea I just love tea .

Being myself is really important and I like that and you know what even the other day I treated myself to some new socks , I love socks as much as I like a cup of tea.

Cats with Whisker Stress

Cats with Whisker stress it isn't a cat that is stressed with a certain brand of cat food but more a cat with sensitive whiskers 

I had noticed Jack dropping his food on the floor and far from being fickler picky  I thought that something else had to be going on and thats' when I came across whisker stress. Whisker stress means a cat could be sensitive to their whiskers touching the sides of their bowl.

Some common signs of this sensitivity are:
  • Scooping the food out of the bowl onto the floor
  • Taking a few bites and walking away and then coming back
  • Leaving the bottom or side layer of food in the bowl most of the time
A simple solution to reduce or eliminate whisker stress is to switch their food and water dishes to flatter, wider-style bowls.

And I know that I could just put down a saucer but Jack is an older cat and I believe our pets deserve to be treated with respect in their older years.

I tried ordering a bowl off Amazon but it wasn't what I wanted and for the money I just knew something better had to be out there , Jack didn't need fancy bowl personalisation I mean cats can't read can they although I am pretty sure they can when I try to give my middle class cat a cheaper brand of cat food.So after scouring the internet I came across the Oblik Lordly Puss bowl which is art in a cat bowl and as well as helping to relieve whisker stress it also aids with good posture and we all know good posture is part of good manners.

Yes the cat bowl his £12.95 and yes the delivery was £2.95 but I think my cat is worth it and it is a bowl that will last.

Having A Nemesis In Life

We’ve all had a nemesis(an arch enemy ) sometime in life not perhaps a master criminal nemesis like Moriarty but a nemesis in some shape of form. One nemesis I had at school who was always trying to keep one step ahead of me , when it was GCSE's literally strolled 45 minutes into an exam and aced their English Literature exam.

My cat Jack has a nemesis, we call him ‘ Sid Vicious ‘ he’s hard core , he wears a studded collar, he listens to mean deep heavy metal  music,he probably likes Coldplay but doesn’t admit it ( some has to ), What is the measure of a cat this is a question for another time but for now it is the nemesis of ‘Sid Vicious ‘

We are having issues going outside ~ the cat not me as Sid Vicious is a big mean bully with his  studded collar and Jack is scared of him .He can’t grow a pair as the vet took them away.I mean I’m going to have to go round and talk to Sids owners.

Jack needs to reclaim the fence.

Ps Sid is gorgeous to look at though but don’t tell Jack.

Jack likes to keep lookout especially for dogs so when he spots them he can go to the front door ask to go out ( despite having a cat flap ) and sit on the door mat ( stereotypical ) and be able to taunt the dog by just being out of their reach.It is the cat equivalent of sticking 2 fingers up at someone.

He’s a mean bruiser is ‘Sid Vicious ‘ all muscle and he goes 

“Meow Meow hiss Meow Hiss Meow growl “

He’s probably got knuckle dusters as well in his cat basket and watches film like “ Lock Stock and 2 smoking kittens “

I’m not saying we are fanning any flames at all with comments like :

“ oooooh there’s a pussy cat in your garden “

Or “ go get him “... 

This is from Jane Willis who blogs at Onions and Papers and her crafting and cooking posts are legendary.


Sammy and Charlie were very brave cats. Their nemesis was a regular visitor to our garden and we nicknamed him The Enemy. Sammy and Charlie would spend hours sitting at the window snarling threats at him and clattering their jaws in that aggressive way cats have.......just as long as there was a thick pane of glass in between them and him. But if The Enemy ventured into the garden while they were outside, you've never seen two cats rush to the cat flap and the safety of the window quite so fast! “

Jane loves cats as much as I and love her cards that she makes especially her cat cards which are often comical in nature, many thanks to Jane for writing this passage and her crafting cat links.

Taking A Villa Holiday In St Barts

You can't help but think that after this really really cold snowy weather that rather than holidaying in Narnia for once you would like to holiday somewhere with a bit of guaranteed sunshine.I have been looking at sunshine holidays for this year as I am late in booking one, its usually myself that does the research and as a family we ultimately decide It is usually my first choice of idea ,though). I have a friend who is off to the Caribbean soon with her family and they are very excited about it. I just know I am going to have a twinge of jealously when she posts those enticing photos on social media.Now I have never been to the Caribbean but it is a travel destination I would really like to tick off my bucket list. I love travelling, and I am always wanted to do so I do think I have a rather nomadic soul.I could book a stop at a hotel which is all inclusive but there is another option which is to book a villaI could book a villa in St Barts for example.A villa is a good option whether there is a few of you or a big group there will be a villa or villas to suit your needs.

Now what can you do in St Barts?

Well asides from sipping the obligatory cocktail in St Barts there is a wealth of activities to choose from as being in the Caribbean it is the place for some serious me time.and chic French cuisine . St Barts has a  much tropical landscape of soaring mountains and isolated stretches of power soft sand sun soaked beaches there are around 22 beaches on the island and you can see all manner of marine life including turtles. St Barts has a dreamlike quality and a laid back tempo and all the beaches are accessible and free. The capital of the island is Gustavia ideal for for the designer shopping with well known designer names available and you can experience everything from fine dining gourmet restaurants to casual options. You literally can't get a bad meal  as they all serve fresh delicious food. 

You could take a boat trip around the island or learn to windsurf,surfing, kite surfing  or even scuba dive( this could be a good reason to finally learn to swim after all these years ) The water is turquoise and is instagram ready for you without the need for photo shop.St Barts is small ( eight square miles to be exact ) small but beautiful and you''ll feel that being there is very much a bespoke experience and one to savour every moment from.St Barts is a safe Caribbean holiday and that is why celebrities , rock stars and millionaires flock here but even if you aren't a millionaire you can still be part of the scene.

You’ll be aware that some of the Caribbean was devastated by Hurricane Irma , communities are pulling together to get back on their feet and that’s why they need people come and see the restoration of their beautiful islands.The community has made an impressive recovery since the hurricane and they can not wait to welcome you to their island and show you its natural splendour.

Living the Caribbean life is an easy lifestyle option and that is why so many people fall in love with the relaxed way of life, we are often so busy in our lives and don't give ourselves enough to relax rest and unwind.  I feel most relaxed just writing about the Caribbean and I can imagine the colours sights and sound and I feel ready to fly off there right now , I am sure work will not miss me.

St Barts Beach

Why not have a two centre Caribbean holiday and spent some time also in Jamaica ( which is great to take kids to)  is another place I would also like to visit some time in my life.
