Just because you see me looking at my feet it doesn't mean I am not paying attention to the world around me what takes the average person to walk say 20 minutes may take me 30 minutes as I am taking in the world in a visual way. In that time I am looking all around me listening to bird song ,absorbing the vibe of the world, and just watching the canvas of the sky. I notice everything and anything. When my world is shattered from what I know I do what I do best and take stock and drink tea . Tea drinking is a skill and a saviour to the soul I am always having to up my tea levels I would love to be a roving tea reporter and visit more tea rooms. I seriously love tea as tea is all the love you need next to cats.

How do you know if your cat has a sore throat ?
Their meowing might be different as per the grass trumpet sound in Jack for instance.
What could cause a sore throat?
Too much meowing maybe , an upper respiratory infection , maybe after surgery or if there is some sort of heart issue.
Sore Throat Treatment
Jack had been off it for days really not being himself throwing up white foam which I didn't think was normal as it wasn't the same as when he lovingly delivers a hairball at my feet. So it was off to the vets with him since losing Rollie I haven't been keen on vets ( the vet was very sympathetic with Rollie )
I was feeling like my cats drug dealer crushing up his tablets to put in his food , also I tried to avoid eye contact with him when I gave him the phone with the tablets it as I am sure cats can see right into your soul.
Pets are family and we will do all that we need to do to make sure they ok , Jack is recovering slowly and has even started playing hide and seek again ( which he is rather rubbish at but we don't tell him so as not to hurt his feelings )
There is one thing though Jack has t ego back to the vets next week for his annual booster ~ you going to take him to the V E T ?

Soaking up the history of Berlin.
Living and loving times in Washington D.C
How do your capture your family with your photography have you got a special sort of way ?
I love taking pictures of my family and I love capturing when they are unaware , I have created many lovely pictures and they are wonderful memories to look back on.
Photographing your family this way can make family life easier as your not trying to wrestle possible squabbling children in a family portrait with half tears and smiles ! I am very much a fan of natural photography.

Dolly Mixtures - jump with me into a great big sweet bag of nostalgia, then get yourself a quarter of Dolly Mixtures! They're so delicious, and so pretty, and did you know that they've been around since at least the 1920s...
Anorak time - according to the Oxford English Dictionary, a dolly mixture is a 'mixture of tiny coloured sweets of various shapes'. There are stacks of myths around relating to the origins of the iconic sweet, and nobody can agree on the exact date of origin. The story I love the best is this:
Many believe that they originated around the time of the British Raj in India. Dal or Dahl in India are pulses (beans, peas, legumes) which are often made up of different sizes and colours.... so could Dally Mixture have led to Dolly Mixture? A long shot I know, but I love a bit of intrigue when it comes to my sweets.
Sharing is caring they say ...
