Morning all.

I have the kettle boiling. There is tea, coffee, chai, milk, cream, honey, and rusks.

You are welcome to join me on my early walk a little later.


Nice to have you back, Stampie, WELL DONE ON THE MEDALS. It sounds as though you had a super time with Chirinda. I agree,she is an excellent lace maker.

Terry, my very best wishes for today. I really hope that all goes well. :gflower:

Cape of Storms, I am pleased that you had such a lovely time with your girls. I hope the homesickness is getting a little better each day.

I am off to Germiston this afternoon. I really don't know the area, but I have been offered cat and dog food from the Purina factory at cost price. I think their main brand is Husky and and Friskies. It has been organized through 'Friends of the cat'.

I do wish you all a wonderful day. :gflower:

Good morning MM, Mischief and all to follow :)

Hugh, Spike is doing extremely well and runs the household :lol: . He has a will of his own and will NOT do anything he does not want to. Some evenings he demonstrates behaviour of a naughty child and does not want to go into his cage easily :naughty: far more enjoys flying around until the sun sets and see us trying to coax him into his cage for the night! :whistle: He is a pure joy of a fluff ball to have! :D

Well done Stampie on the medals 8) ..Wonderful that you met Chirinda and could have had a short meet! :dance: Her lace is magnificent and so intricate to make, I also treasure my gift from her :k

Thinking of you today Terry :pray: all will go well.

Love the piccie MM 8) ..will take a walk with your furry family this morning.

Do all have a blessed Monday and start to the new week.

Good morning everyone.

Love all the kitty and doggy pics.

Loads to catch and do today. It's amazing how messy the place gets when SO is home alone. But it's a beautiful day, the sky is blue and the garden green and I know what I'd much rather be doing..

Terry, thinking of you today and hoping that your travel plans won't have to be altered too much.

Have a great day, everyone.
