My young cats haven’t been outside a great deal so to get them used to the garden we’ve started taking them out on cat harnesses. Here’s a picture of my daughter and Jasper, a close up of Carmen and another picture of Jasper.

It was my daughter’s eleventh birthday last weekend – she had me all over Town and the Metro Centre looking in all the teen clothes shops, by the end of the day I felt very tired and very, very old!
The weather can’t seem to make up its mind – it’s been quite mild but very wet so all the flowers are confused – we already have lots of snowdrops and now some miniature Iris.

I am officially old! I got on the crowded Metro the other day on my way to work and a young man in his early 20’s offered me his seat. It was very polite of him and I’m glad to see that good manners still exist, but I was always taught to give up my seat to the elderly or infirm so where does that leave me!
