BEGGING FOR BOXES.



For some  years now we have been buying these boxes from Asda containing 8 webbox dog rolls.   We give the foxes some dog roll each night together with a bit of tinned food.
Yesterday we went shopping to buy another box and 'Hey Presto' they no longer stock them.
I'm not worried about the food as the foxes will eat anything but the gang of 5, aka  Rowan, Rupert, Willow, Princess and Mummy Polly will not be happy when I break the news to them.
These boxes are the love of their lives and they all take a turn at snuggling down in them.

I've written to Webbox and am waiting a reply.
I sort of begged them to send me some boxes if they have any in the warehouse or tell me where else I can buy them.  What a saddo I am begging for boxes, lol .   But that's what cat's do to you isn't it.......turn you into a jibbering wreck over cardboard boxes.

TIGHT SQUEEZE


This is how Tom woke up this morning.  Rupert and Rowan back to back crashed out on the end of the bed.
After pulling his legs out he went and got the camera for this shot and they didn't move and inch, I think Rowan may have opened her eye just a tiddly bit. lol
It's only a single bed and I think he had about 18 inches of bed,  ha ha.

BEATING A TATTOO...

If you remember, we have new neighbours next door.  They have been in now for a couple of months and are really lovely people, phew, thank goodness..

I approached them about the seagulls and explained that I put out a small amount of food for them each day and asked if they were okay with that,
 the reason being that the gulls feed on the wall that surrounds their garden.
They said that they didn't mind at all, in fact the lady was also putting a few bits on the window ledge for them.

Luckily we do not have large window sills like next door, when we had a renovation they were replaced with tiny one's.
But as you can see the original large one's are perfect for a seagull to perch on.

Now, we all know that seagulls are very, very clever birds and when this one spies the owner in his office (I found out that he is an Author) https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/215041.Stuart_Blackburn he duly stands on the sill and beats out a tattoo on the window until the owner opens up and puts out a few bits.

I'm not sure how he puts up with this as it would drive me crazy but I have asked a couple of times if he would like me to stop feeding them and he assures me its okay.

MR HAUGHTY



Meet Mr Haughty, lol
I found this pot at the car boot years ago and bought it for 50p.
This year I gave him some hair, I think he likes it well enough.

I USED TO BE A CHOCOHOLIC.




I'm not sure exactly when this happened but I find that I am no longer interested in chocolate.
It may be an age related thing as there are other things that I used to crave for and no longer do.
Once upon a time I couldn't go into any shop without coming out with one, or more likely two bars of some kind of chocolate.





But don't worry, I'm not that saintly, I've gone over the these instead, lol
Anyone else realised that their tastes have changed?



LION ON A ROCK


Just to give you some idea of the size of Rupert, here he is laying on the large footstool.
This footstool is 30" long and when he lays full length and stretches out he overhangs both sides.
Look at that lovely face, Dad's giving him his morning tickle.
Sorry about the foot.  lol

JIGSAW THERAPY


I've blogged before about our love of jigsaws and the love is still going strong.
Nothing passes the time like a jigsaw and nothing gives so much pleasure as putting in the final piece.



My favourite jigsaws are WASGIJ,  jigsaw backwards...
The picture you end up with is not the picture on the box but in this one's case, what happens next.
Some are what the people are looking at.


So far so good on this one, should finish it in a couple of days and on to the next


As you can see we have no shortage of them as we buy them each week from the car boot.
This is just some, others are tucked away at the back of the cupboard.

Some girls just can't have enough shoes, with me its jigsaws. LOL

PRIDE



Today was Pride in Brighton and as always we took ourselves down to the seafront to watch the event.
Whilst standing watching, these two colourful chaps came across and asked if Tom was with me. Yes, I said and they promptly nabbed him for a photo.
I will be keeping a close eye on him in the future. lol

ANOTHER BOX PICTURE + HELP NEEDED WITH PHOTOGRAPHY



Rupert is in the box this time with one paw casually thrown over the side for comfort. 

HELP

I am making a pin cushion in black velvet and need some help in taking the photographs.
I know some of you out there know a bit about photography.
How do I get a decent picture of black velvet? 
 they are all coming out looking faded.
Please.....
