It's A Cat's Life

We have very kindly been given 2 weeks of free Guardian newspapers - which is nice!
We used to buy the Saturday edition, but haven't for a long time - so it's been quite a treat & kitties always love it when we have papers for them to lie on...

Saturday night - Lupe loved helping Daddy...

This morning.
 Christmas cards piles are great for sitting on - just when Mummy wanted to sort them...

And when the fire's in - cards need spreading out all over the table...

They've hardly moved all day...

Sleepy Fleaby...

Lupe really doesn't like having his photo taken...

So had to get his own back somehow...

No prizes for guessing whose in charge in this house!

Aw, I love this post! Your sweeties are adorable and sound a lot like Sophie. She usually doesn't move much during the day and loves to sit on paper. What is it with paper and cats? So cute. :)

We had the pleasure of Bold's company for a few days after Christmas when K and A went to visit friends in Bristol. He barely moved from my knee - which was just fabulous for me!
Jane's cats - But the table is for all of us, not just kitties... They need to learn to share a bit more - perhaps you could speak to them please!

Molly - If we sit on the futon, Flea enjoys coming up for a snuggle, but Lupe tends to takeover & slowly push us off... Can't win!

Scarlet - Lovely, you can't beat having a kitty on your lap! Flea's a lap cat & spends most of his time on Sime's knee!

when I worked at the vets, there were many households with both cats and dogs. Without exception, the owners told me, the cat was the boss!

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...

Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.

Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
