March goes out like a lion

Or possibly some kind of snow cat. Weird frost in the morning...

.. and needing to shovel grit onto the road to get up the hill at night. It wasn't deep, just very slippery.

A comfy spot

Actually, you'd think there were comfier spots than this wouldn't you? Hester thinks otherwise.

There's no business like show-business

She's got a lot of panache!

A bit of sunshine..

.. and some flowers.

Insert 'funny' caption here

All peaceful in the Borg household. Until Miss Mouse put a paintbrush in the paint without rinsing out the previous colour first and Sheldon, er the Boy, had a hissy fit.

Letting the cat out of the bag

Weird cat. He likes hiding in bags.

Jolene! Jolene! Joleeeeeene!

'Your beauty is beyond compare [nicely ambiguous don't you think?]
With flamin' locks of auburn hair...' etc

Yeah, after some colour tinkering (via blonde that didn't work), I'm now kinda ginger. Suits the spring, I'll clash with the daffodils.

Are you humming Jolene now? I am :-D.

Little waif

Roaring temperature, scabs from itchy eczema - poor Mouse hasn't had a good day.

A great big ray of sunshiney geekiness

MrBorg won (mostly by saying terrible things about me) an official t-shirt of 'the official fan podcast of the webseries The Guild'. This is sublimely geeky - there are layers to its geekiness :-).

Neil says it's spring

It's like Simon Says with seasonal pedantry!

Miss Mouse celebrated the return of the sun by insisting that I get her bike out of the garage.

Miss Mouse at her friend's birthday party - five minutes before announcing that she felt sick. Given her brother's spectacular vomiting the night before I thought it best to get her away before the inevitable happened. Actually the inevitable didn't happen, but she did look pretty peely-wally. And missed the cake.

Miss Borglet

Otherwise known as Miss Mouse intent on the 'puter (yay for the CBeebies website). Bit of a chip off the old block really. *sigh*

Cat/keyboard interface

Produces interesting results. Though to be fair to the cats this may just as easily have been Miss Mouse.

Oh great altar of passive entertainment

Bestow upon us thy discordant images at such rate as to render linear thought impossible.

The kids and friends watching telly. By the way, I love Bill Watterson.

Cafe society

After school the Boy and I met up with my friend and two of her brood and hot chocolate was consumed, somewhat messily in some cases!

Mothers' Day

I have these two little cherubs..

.. who provided me with chocolates :-).

Meanwhile I've finally got a picture of Hest doing one of her more endearing things - tucking her nose behind a paw. Aww, who can resist the widdle kitteh? (etc)

Complete contentment - both the Borg and his cat.

The Great Outdoors

Hester investigates the Outside World. Hello World!'

And when it looks like this..

.. and this, who can blame her for being entranced?

Thursday, 11 March 2010

tlhIngan maH!

MrBorg sneaked out to get this done this afternoon. I approve. And so, as you see, does Miss Mouse.

Sunshine and flooers

Pretty aren't they?

Can't go wrong with fluffy plants either.

I'm blogging backwards, trying to get back up to date (something about that sentence is making my head go funny). Normal service will be resumed when I'm not so bloody tired.

Update: caught up. Must try not to get so far behind with this!

Two furry hot-water-bottles warming my legs up.

Two happys

Happy One: washing on the line for the first time this year.

Happy Two: gorgeous, luscious, delicious Yarn Yard yarn from the yarn party yesterday (which was Happy Three - lovely people, lovely yarn, lovely cake and a lovely dog and a lovely cat).

Monorail kitteh

Likes warmth. Lots and lots of warmth.

Shepherds' delight

Or something.

Poor confused cat

This is Hester, just back from the vet after her op. The cone bewildered her initially, but she figured out how to remove it pretty quickly. I think she has a secret opposable thumb stashed somewhere.

World Book Day

... is tomorrow. The Boy decided to go as the boy from Lost and Found - he has a stripy top and a toy penguin, and I discovered suitable colours in my wool stash that could be cobbled together into a hat (which actually I'm very pleased with, and the Boy loves it too).

Tuesday, 2 March 2010


I love that yarn (alpaca cotton) and I love knitting in the sunshine.

And I love the colour of that chair of Miss Mouse's. Toby likes the chair too. And the Cat Ability to find and claim a Patch of Sunlight is demonstrated again.

Love the coffee (mmm, smell, taste), the mug (mmm, happy colour) and the spoon (mmm, wedding present - happy memories).

Happy cat enjoying the thaw. You know that great fresh smell you get when the snow melts and green things start making their presence felt? Must be even more heady (or nasal) an experience for a cat.
