Action packed humans and animals…


Sometimes it’s hard to know what to blog about and today is a right mish-mash!

The kitten (Moonface/Thugface) update has to come first, we are nearly at going outside stage and can’t wait as he guards the back door and attacks any foot that dares to come in or out! He continues to make us laugh and is just so full of personality it’s brilliant! Tynor and him are now buddies, they play beautifully (T is sooooo patient with him!!!) but we are still working on Sherbert the big cat. I think even Moonface is fed up with being polite and has been really pushing his luck of late. The other day I think Sherbert was half playing and half telling off as they chased each other around a full Ikea bag, up and down the stairs, ambushing each other behind doors… entertainment central!!

In other news, we volunteered to help the youth club this weekend host their biannual event “XFest”. We manned the BBQ and drinks tent, originally it was suggested to be two hour stints but we had such a ball that we did the entire six hours as well as the setup and take down before and after. It was a very long day but oodles of fun was had. I was slightly disappointed that I didn’t manage to have a go on the Segway course, instead I stopped and watched for a couple of minutes, holding my bin bag as I litter picked the field (which I was pleasantly surprised to see wasn’t too bad for a youth event!), Beely snuck off to climb up the big inflatable slide toward the end and both of us managed the bungee run race just before they packed up which was hilarious, and not for the weak bladdered! (no photo for that as we were both running!)


Finally Catherine and I had a ball on Facebook Live the other day as we did the Easiyo challenge. We had to guess all the flavours (we were rubbish!!) including a brand new one which is simply delicious! Check out Tuesday’s Today’s Special Value offer as there’s lots to enjoy and I have to say, Easiyo goes down a treat in my family, perfect to get those healthy bacterias in our tummies!

The top I wore on the Easiyo challenge is the Label Lab tie dye top, and the nail varnish that you can’t really see, but that I’m living in at the moment is the OPI California Dreaming Nudes. The bronze is perfect on your toes!

That’s all for now folks. Beely and I are off to see Justin Bieber at Hyde Park next weekend so no doubt pics to follow, definitely live ones if you’re with me on Twitter!

Much love as always

    Hi Pipa. I just love the updates on your little kitten. He’s so cute. Your blogs are always so interesting anyway. I always like to read them. I am wondering what is the age difference with the other cat you have? We acquired another cat (who is now 6) about 18 months ago and our existing cat who is nearly 18 still often chases her away and hisses etc. Have you had anything like that? Is it best to let them just get on with it? Our vet says so but i wouldn’t want either of them getting hurt. It’s interesting to know what others do in this situation.

      Hi Rebecca, my other cat is 5 and he’s hilarious with Moonface. He tolerates him very well now although will happily punch him when he’s had enough. I think we have to let them get on with it, it’s the only way really. Sometimes it can sound so much worse than it is so don’t worry too much about yours. Last night Moonface literally stood up and put his arms around Sherbert for a hug, it was so funny. Sherbert let it last for all of 2 seconds and then made it clear in no uncertain terms that he wasn’t interested. I wonder if because your second cat was a bit older when you got him that it has made it a bit harder. They may just end up living in separate rooms and giving each other space, I have a friend who has cats who do that, I think they are quite able to work around each other so try not to worry too much xx

        Hi Pipa, Thanks for your reply. I think you’re right about them just giving each other space. The young one does seem to realise that the older one is boss. She sometimes pokes her little head around the door and sees her then runs off. Its very funny. I will try and relax about it. The vet said to let them get on with it too. In fact most people do…I’m just too soft with them. Thanks again and keep tweeting your kitten pics. xx

    Hi Stefanie, good question!! When Ophelia was a baby, we very quickly shortened her name to “Pheely” which then became “Pheely Beely” and we ended up calling her Beely all the time and it just stuck. She kept it when she started school and has never looked back. Only her ballet teacher calls her Ophelia!! xx
