It's a horrible day outside today, wet wet and wet. But the sun shines in my house so all is well. I accidentaly missed a pic of this kitty the other day when I posted about our rescue cats. Look at this little darling, so pretty. I have just heard that we may have found a home for him. Some people came yesterday to look, Janet has done a home check, and they picked out another kitten which they liked. A neighbour came with them and immediately fell for this little one, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that they come back with a big fat YES.
And here is Elmo who arrived yesterday. He is so lovely. His previous owners had two dogs, a small child, and mum is about to have another baby. It was all getting a bit too much for mum and Elmo to cope with. He likes people but he also likes a quiet place to snuggle down to sleep. He's a lovely boy.
Welcome to Costa del Cheapskate. Here I am on my sun lounger, soaking up the rays and sipping my martini. Bit of a pong coming from that gas fire, I haven't had it on for about a year. That's ten pence worth of gas it's cost me to take this photo, ha ha.
My summer fashion today is a pink teashirt, which is in fact the top bit of a pyjama set. Ooops, I've forgotten to take the price label off, 20p from a car boot sale. My mini skirt is the same one I wore at my 60th birthday party, bought specially for the occasion from a charity shop. Powder blue footless tights from the market, and earrings marked down to half price from a shop in town which was closing down. Cheap trainers I've had for years, only wear them when it's dry and sunny, so they don't get dirty. I'm sure you'll agree, this is a fantastic, up to date look, for the busy pensioner, ha ha.
I'm pleased you took on board my first commandment for a happy and gorgeous life.
Here is the second commandment.
Thou shalt not stuff thy face with junk food. I can hear you groan, what no chocolate, no cake, no chips, no burgers :o( Aint that what life is all about, enjoying it? Well yes you should enjoy your life, but if you want to shorten it by 10 or 20 years, go ahead and eat all the crap you want to. Me personally, I would rather do without 90% of the food that the supermarkets push in my face.
So, I want the next 24 hours to be a day of abstinence, not a morsel of crap to pass your lips please. No takeaways, no ringing for a pizza, no popping into a McDonalds, and horror of horrors, no alcohol. Then when the 24 hours have passed, only consume miniscule amounts of crap, one biscuit, one glass of wine, maybe once a week. It's your choice, wreck your body, or worship it like a temple.
Right, I'm just about to draw a name out of the hat for the winner of yesterdays raffle ticket. Anyone putting a comment on that post now has missed the boat. You can comment every day during party time, and each one will be a chance to win a raffle ticket.
I'll leave you with my LARF OF THE DAY. One of my favourite comedians, Mr Bean. This has me creased up with laughing.
The winner of the first Bransby Horses raffle ticket number 735071 is.....
CAMPFIRE I will keep all the tickets here, and check the numbers after the draw on December 19th. Good luck.
