Oooh look some new people have joined, I'm dead chuffed to see you here. Welcome, come on in, put your feet up and make yourself at home. This is the place where we talk about allsorts. At the moment it's a bit foodie because I have been asked what do I eat to stay the same weight. I've got to let you into a bit of a secret here, I weighed myself today for the first time in months, and I've put a few pounds on. Can't grumble though because I am still only 8.5 stone, so that will do fine. Don't know how it happened, probably because I am not doing a lot of walking during the winter, and I'm probably eating more carbs.
Anyway, let's kick off with breakfast. Porridge with sultanas and a fresh juicy peach.
I then got a bit busy and had things to do so I sort of missed lunch. Managed to grab some crackers and cheese to keep me going. I had a long phone conversation this morning, my two cat rescue friends were not available so I took the call. A lovely lady had lost her elderly cat just before Christmas. She wasn't going to get another one straight away, but the house seemed so empty since her old moggie died. She had seen our page on the CatChat web site and took a fancy to two eight year olds who are looking for a new home together. Her husband noticed the three legged cat we have on there, and immediately fell in love with it. These cats are not in our pens, we were full up and couldn't accommodate them so they stayed with their present owners untill a new home could be found.
Well to cut a long story short, we did the home check, they live in a big house up a private drive in a secluded position in a lovely village. An ideal situation. They are in their late fifties, have had cats all their lives, just perfect. Guess what, they rang back tonight and said they are going to take all three cats and will collect them tomorrow. I'm absolutely thrilled to bits for them.
I had to rush out then, to take my friend Graham's dog a walk, he went on an eight mile walk with his rambler friends. Lady is a lovely dog, a bit of a mixture, some alsation, some collie.
I had an early dinner when I got back. Steamed potatoes, onion, sweetcorn, and home grown runner beans, with a grilled cheese and spring onion bake. I drizzled some toasted sesame seed oil over it, lip smackin scrumptious.
Looks like blogger still haven't sorted the problem of posting pics, there are a lot of posts from disgruntled bloggers on their forum. Now people are having problems posting with Firefox and Chrome. As you can see I have posted with HTML. This is how I do it.
I upload all my photo's first, to the size I want and position on the page I want. It helps that I always choose large size, position central. I get a vertical line of photo's down the centre of the page. Then I go back to Compose mode, put my curser at the bottom left of each photo, click once and it creates a gap to insert the text. Click twice if you want a bigger gap. Works for me.
