Cats in boxes

Outnumbered by Cats: the book that emerged from kitten diaries with chewed edges, written as kittens climbed over me, when trying to work on the computer was not really an option...


Boxes seem to be a big feature in a house full of cats - no box can be discarded until every last scrap of play value has been ripped out of it.
I now have a stack of boxes forming the kitchen island I never wanted...

 I'm not sure if he's king of his castle or an engine driver... 

 ...and I don't think this box is quite big enough.

What is it about sheep...?

How using the wrong word can lead to buying a container ship...

I found a container ship for sale online... I know I've been going a bit nautical, but that is going a bit far...!

It also illustrates the need for correct spelling and word usage -  I searched 'ship sale' instead of 'ship sail' when looking for images to inspire some artwork.

I hope this doesn't lead to more container ship adverts popping up everywhere now that I've accidentally shown an interest in them...

Get lost in a Book - escaping into my own imagination - care to join me...?

I'm feeling a nautical theme coming on - last week I found myself daydreaming about an ark, as my washing machine threatened to cause a flood - it turned out that it may have been straw that was the last straw... in the coin trap there was only a 20p coin - not enough to fund a new machine... but there was also a tie-wrap and some straw...

Today the storms are gathering outside - which is a better place for them by far - well done that storm...! So maybe my house will drop anchor and become an ark... or maybe I'll just settle for my online bookshop being on an ark... hmmm - off to draw boats...
