I had a serious post to write …  
But I'm too tired.

I did have a fantastic day, though. Knocked over a batch of sewing that needed to be done, ukulele date with pollymel (who said she never sang on a first  jam, but she did, and is good! Also good at ukulele), then knocked over a spot of writing, three loads of washing and dug out the second sock I need to finish knitting so I can post them to the UK (I always have such a sense of achievement in finishing a sock that I can have real issues with finishing two socks …).

Finally, I managed to wear out the kitten:

Sleeping kitten

His socks are a bit grotty from playing in the cat run. I'm tempted to bathe him, but I have been trying to discourage arm savaging. I wonder if the vet sells kitten wipes?

Aw! I've decided the warm squishy feeling I get when I see sleeping cats is actually jealousy at their being able to nap so often and so deeply.

Don't let him fool you. That whole cats sleep 18 hours a day? 18 minutes for this little boy. He's up again. At least he's quiet and entertains himself while we sleep!

Aww, so cute! Glad you had a productive and satisfying weekend!

Well, I was MEANT to do the gardening … It's the first time he's been still all day, and since then he's kicked off again. I feel he must have found a stash of powdered sugar somewhere.

It's a good day when you can wear out the kitty. :)

Sadly, it hasn't lasted.

Aww he's all tuckered out
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2014 02:38 pm (UTC)
He's recovered and is now murdering another cat toy. Very very happy kitty!

Is that a new-ish term, "to knock over"? I think I only ever knew "knock out". Whatever it's called, not sure how you manage. And what is your cat run? DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THOSE WHEELS?!?!?! I WANT ONE!!! They can even power a small battery->lights. *cat-carpentry longing* Does it maybe make your day longer, like in that fairy tale with the rich man and the devil?


ETA: *checks time difference* HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May you end up as content as that kitten there.

He has been sleeping in my lap and stopping me typing as he rolls over and I have to catch him before he falls.

And 'knock over' has been around for a long time with respect to crossing things off a list, but I can't remember which English it's from. Because I have the brains of a fish.

The cat run is, alas, not a wheel, but a fenced-off section of garden where they can play safely without marauding birds or being attacked by other cats.

Are these my socks that I was promised in 2012?

Well done for getting through all the things!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2014 09:20 pm (UTC)
They are. They were nearly finished in a fit of knittery last year, but I decided to break my thumb instead. Bloody fine lacy bloody bloody ... Oh the shame!

Sits down to absorb all your doingness! Congrats

He's so precious. Reminds me of my long-ago tuxedo cat.

And, if he's anything like my kitten Pfeffles, he has two speeds: frenzied and sleep.

I buy pet wipes from Daiso, purveyor of all manner of Japanese (designed, mostly made in China) ingenuities.

So adorable.
I have a tuxedo cat, and when she's awake, she is full of beans, but when she sleeps she is utterly limp and nothing disturbs her.

Btw…in case I am not on the internet tomorrow…Happy Birthday!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 29th, 2014 02:34 pm (UTC)
Thank you, dear!

When he sleeps he goes so floppy that he slides off things, usually my lap …

Aw, such a sleepy face. I just get all mushy, looking at cute cats.

And it sounds like you had a wonderful day! I'm a bit envious!
Anntsosh on January 29th, 2014 07:48 am (UTC)
I hope this day is fantastic too, and wish you lots of Mazal Tov.

(And yay new Kitten!)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 29th, 2014 02:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you, darling! He is just adorable. I am trying to find him a new home with fewer cats: I confess I am not trying as hard as I might …
