We have been away, housesitting in Kent. Also catsitting. Here's Tubby, who is very furry and purry and friendly and also somewhat well-covered.
And this is MC, a multicoloured lady cat, also very sociable.
And finally Whiskey, a tail with a cat attached. He decided in the end that we were all right, but doubted our motivation for a while.
It was so nice being cat servants again.
The house was part of a very grand establishment,
So we had a pleasant time and then after a while Daughter 2 came over from London, and she makes a good holiday even better.
We went to the Margate Turner Contemporary Art Gallery, somewhat of a blot on the landscape in our opinion but with a good café. It also had a Grayson Perry exhibition, which Daughter 2 and I found very interesting and Mr Life really didn't.
Since we came home on Tuesday I've been extremely busy with various essential activities and then tomorrow, a very special bloggy friend arrives in Edinburgh: Thimbleanna from middle America! This is the third time we've met now and I'm really looking forward to it.
Must get on...
