A Taste of Morocco

Another week has flown by and I was really ready for this weekend! With all this glorious weather we have been spending a lot of time outside, particularly on the generous patio we have newly acquired. Despite being in dispute with the next door cat about whose patio it actually is, Timmy has been joining us for a spot of sunbathing.      Having my morning cuppa in the gentle glow of the early morning sunshine, I have itching to get my hands dirty and tidy up the neglected garden. Like the house the garden has some interesting features, these dry stone walls for instance.   It certainly looks like this garden was very well cared for in the not too distant past, and now spring is in full swing there is evidence of thoughtful planting in among the weeds. It makes sense to wait and watch what comes through before making any decisions about planting, although I did add...

Making a Home

We have been in our house just over a week now and it’s really starting to take shape! It is quite amazing how quickly we have fallen into a new routine, and the new place really does feel like our home already. Timmy says he likes is here too because he has lots of warm spots to curl up in.   The bedroom curtain rail was installed today, which means we may not be awoken at 5:30am now we have some proper curtains! Also this beautifully handmade shelf, by Mr Bee, got put up in the hall today, after many years of not having anywhere suitable to hang out in the old house.    We have adapted to our new space really well, apart from our huge corner sofa, our collection of furniture has all fit in where we wanted it to be. There have been a couple of new additions, like this comfy swivel chair that provides the armchair DJ of the house with the right kind of access to...

A Cat’s Life

Hi my name is Timmy. Some of you will have met me, some of you may even have looked after me while my humans went away from the house for a while – they always come back though because they love me.     The lady owner took me from a house that couldn’t look after me, not long after I was born, and I like living with her and Mr Human because they look after me when I am scared by the fireworks…or just my shadow following me sometimes.   Timid Timmy, that’s me, my humans keep me safe. It’s been a confusing time though recently. The humans have been hiding all of our things in boxes and piling them up in corners of rooms. I was pleased to see they had left my bed where I could find it and that my food and water was still kept in the same place. They tried to hide a big box of my food under the sink once, but I found it with my sensitive nose...

Craft Therapy

It is almost three years since the Bee Creative Community Workshops came into being and this week I really felt the benefit of what I have worked hard to create.   In between work and organising my stuff to move there has not been much time for creativity, and to be honest I have been missing it. Folding a few butterflies on a train ride just hasn’t been cutting it, so I was really glad when I realised on Monday that Kay was running the Bee Creative Session providing the perfect opportunity for me to immerse myself in a crafty project.   I had never made a dream catcher before, so was really looking forward to learning something new and it seemed like this make would require a fair bit of concentration. My brain wouldn’t let me understand the first step for a while, but with Kay’s patience and a hands-on approach I got it and was soon into the rhythm of...
