People have asked if I am going to do something similar again. On Friday night I would have said a definate no, but now I'm not so sure. It has got me thinking about other ideas, and other challenges. I am not prepared to sit on my backside and let life pass me by, I'll get my thinking cap on.
Did you see the film Educating Rita? Remember the scene where Rita went back to her home town to visit her parents, and met them in their local pub. She had been trying to better herself by going to university and her family didn't understand. They thought she should get married and have a family like everyone else did.
They were all singing in the pub when she got there, she sat down next to her mother and noticed a tear rolling down her cheek, her mother was crying. Rita looked around and knew this life wasn't for her, she thought, 'There's got to be a better song'. And she was right. Don't sing along with the rest of them, sing your own song, that's what I do. A very powerful film with a very important message, I love it.
Anyway, I would like to introduce you to the newest member of my family, yes this is Mayze. She came as a rescue with her four kittens. They have all been found lovely new homes, and now Mayze has asked to stay. Well what can I do. I didn't want to start again with another young cat, but.......she loves it here, and she fits in with Bugsy and Lily. I tried her outside and she came back, and she sleeps on my bed, and she loves lots of fuss.
Mayze loves to explore.
And lie in the sun outside the back door.
And sit on my knee.
Remember Tango, an older rescue we took in a few months ago, because her owner died. Well last week a kind lady came forward to adopt her. Sue and Janet took her to the vet to get her teeth done and claws clipped because both were causing her some discomfort. Now she is fixed it has given her a new lease of life and she is settled in nicely at her new home. Lucky pussy.
