A mixed bag

Hello. Back for a second post today, you can't say I short change you, ha ha. A bit of  this and that, a mixed bag if you like. In my porch are some books, given to me to sell on our fundraising stall. I am going to sort through them and any we can't sell, or those that are a bit specialist, will go to the charity shops. An elderly lady donated them, it helps her if I do the job, rather than her having to lug them to town. 
Who's this guy then? Why, it's Mickey from two doors down who has spotted me returning home and decided to sit looking at me through the glass as I sit in the porch and take my shoes off. He says, 'ya got any nosh then', or, 'please give me some of your lovely food'. Mostly I don't feed him, he gets enough at home, but occasionally I give in and give him half a pouch of whatever food my fussy cats don't like. He will eat anything.
I thought it was about time I had a mooch around the Scrapstore again, so me and Linda, another crafty lady friend from up the road went off to Hull. I filled my basket with fabric for £5. Including some felt, not shown here.

And bought a few extras. Colourful shoe laces, silver and red sparkly trimmings, pink lace, and small coloured buttons. I spent £10, and Linda kindly paid for the bridge toll for taking her.

Janet sent me some photo's of the kittens in our rescue. They are getting quite playful now. Grey cats are quite unusual, aren't they just adorable. 


I've been on the phone this afternoon, got a call from a chappie doing some research for a possible TV programme. We spent an hour chatting, more like me doing all the talking and him throwing a few questions in and listening, ha ha. It's early days, something may happen, or something may not. It might not even get off the ground. It usually depends on whether they can get the funding or not, and if it does go ahead I may not get picked, it's happened before.

That's it, a mixed bag tonight. Thanks for popping in. Catch ya soon. Toodle pip

  3. Great Bargains you have there. We used to have a Russian blue just like the kittens . He would run off with hubbys lighter and hide it and if he couldn't get out fast enough he would run up to the bath and wee down the plug hole he was a lovely and loving cat and is sadly missed.

  4. I bet Mickey is fussy as anything at home! My cat eats mostly dry food because when we gie him pouches he just licks off the gravy and leaves the meat. The only meat he begs for is ham, which half the time he just sucks and leaves. When we go away however, just to prove to his Auntie next door that he is hard done by, he devours pouches! She is his principal cat-sitter and we have known her to give him her own cats' pouches! Little swine (our cat, that is!)

  5. The kittens kind of make me long for another cat but the young'un would like a dog this time. Not sure, I have the patience for the puppy stage of chewing. So we wait for the right pet to come along at the right time.

  6. Oh, a potential tv show and maybe an appearance by you? Sounds exciting. "Got any nosh?" sounds cute to these California ears. Our cat is grey so of course I like the soft grey color of the kittens.

  7. I love your mixed bag posts.

    Mickey looks sweet. Don't you just love how cats stare when they want something. My cat will sit on the coffee table and stare at me endlessly waiting for treats.

    Great selection of fabric from the Scrapstore. The one at the top with brown, gold and orange leaves looks very retro. My favorite is the blue-green paisley at the bottom.

    The grey kittens are adorable.

    1. Hi Hazel. Thank you for your enquiry. Can you please email me your contact details, address with post code, and phone numbers, as we do home checks. We like to rehome in our local area in a safe environment. We have a policy of not rehoming on a busy road. We also need to know if there are any other pets or young children in the house, and if the cat will have access to a safe garden. Are you in North Lincolnshire? I will pass the information on to the lady who is looking after them, and I will email you back with her email address. She will ring you to speak to you.

      My email address is on the side bar on the right. Thanks.
