A wee bit better...

.. or as they say here on Graemsay a peedie bit better. There were lots of heavy rain showers, but the wind was better, so I was able to go out lots of times for little trips round my garden. When it is wet, I go out the front window and head straight under our barbecue thingy 'cos I can get some shelter there and the bird feeder is beside me so I can watch and listen to my birdie friends as they are having their dinner. Another good thing about sheltering there is that with just one little jump I can be back on my window sill and then right back into my living room.

My humans had lots of time for me today 'cos my MH doesn't do any housework on a Friday so there is peace and quiet in my house and there is always a knee for me whenever I want one. And another brilliant thing about getting outside is coming back in again 'cos every time I comed home I was a wee bit cold and my MH lifted me up and cuddled me warm again and of course I loved that. I am a lucky puss!

I also had great fun playing with the string when my DH came back from the pier at lunch time. We played in my kitchen for a long time and I loved it, and then when we had finished, I left the humans putting all the messages away and then I had a sleep in my wee hoose until dinner time. As soon as I had finished eating, I was off out into the rain again, but just for a wee while and then I hammered on the window till my MH let me in and cuddled me dry.

And where am I now? Back in my wee hoose having another snooze until it is out time later on. I think I have a very good life and I just LOVE it! I am looking forward to my weekend and I hope you have a good weekend too.

What a Day!

The awful weather started last night, but it didn't keep me in. No,not one little bit! I have my routine and no little breeze or drop of rain will spoil it for me! Oh, no indeed! Mind you, it did take me three attempts and one rather soggy MH before I finally ventured out into the weather. Oops, sorry MH. However, I finally made it and scooted out into the dark and the weather and I headed straight to the big shed where I watched the awful rain from there.

It was cold and miserable but I needed the fresh air and to be honest, the thought of running across the wet grass in the wind and pouring rain to get back into my house, did not appeal to me one little bit. I was just wondering if I could find a wee space in the big shed to settle down for the night when I saw my porch light going on and my DH was calling for me. So I had a very quick debate---stay in the dry or scoot home in the wet? I thought about what I would find if I went home---a lovely cosy knee to sit on---and before you could say 'Squeak is adorable' I was flying across the grass and straight into my kitchen. Yippee!!

The weather today certainly wasn't any better, but still I managed a couple of short trips outside. I spent most of the day either sitting with my MH or having a snooze in my wee hoose but now that I am sitting on my window sill I can hear that the wind is not just so bad now so I shall have another short nap and then I shall head out into the weather later on and see what is happening.

I shall let you know tomorrow.

A wee bit better...

... but not a lot! The wind wasn't just as bad today but it has rained the whole day and every time I have gone out, I have been a wet little puss and have had to ask my MH to dry me when I come in again. I like getting dried 'cos it always ends with a cuddle.

I have been in and out for lots of little times and I think I will need to get some exercise again tonight because my little weather man friend says there is going to be a very naughty gale on my island tomorrow so I think we will all be staying indoors.

I got a surprise this afternoon 'cos my MH asked me if I wanted to go out to play with her, but I'm afraid I made her a bit sad, 'cos I said no. I discovered that she was going into my garden to bring in all our summer ornaments and she wanted me to help her, but I was very comfortable lying on the back of my couch, so I didn't go. However, while I was lying on the couch, I noticed her in the front garden and I felt sorry that I had said no, so I nipped out of the window and plopped down beside her and that made her very happy.It was raining, but we didn't mind and she talked to me all the time telling me what she was doing and I did a wee bit of sniffing as she was working and it was good fun.

When we were finished, we had a seat together on my couch until the childrens came for their guitar lessons. I am not frightened any more when they come and I am even beginning to like their playing 'cos it is not just as sore on my adorable little lugs, so it was fine. AND--all the little childrens love me and every week J. asks my MH if he can take me home and every week she says 'No' and that makes me feel very happy indeed.

I know J. thinks I am adorable but my MH loves me MILLIONS and she would never part with me. And I love her too, so that is good, sure it is?

Are you sitting comfortably?

.....then I shall begin. I have a story for you, and this story shows just what a brave little puss I am. So here goes.

The weather today on my little island has been dreadful. I don't know what has happened, but all the good weather has disappeared and winter has suddenly arrived and brought the wind and the rain with it. It has been so bad, that I didn't get out at all the en-tire day and my DH says if it is like this tomorrow, he is staying home with me and my MH.

My humans didn't go out either although my DH did have a quick run to the greenhouse for something he needed. He had to fight with the wind to get there, but coming back was much quicker 'cos the wind helped him although he nearly blew right past the door! Hee hee

Anyway, I spent most of the day sleeping on various beds and surfaces and I have found a new place to curl up and that's on top of one of our printers 'cos it is nice and warm and I can watch the old dear when she is working on her computer. However, after dinner I decided that I really needed to get out for some fresh air so I asked the old dear to open the door and when she did, all the bad weather blew into my porch, so I turned very quickly and scooted back into my living room. I shall not tell you what she said!

Well, on the third asking, I decided that perhaps I should go out and off I went. Now, as soon as these adorable little paws hit the outside, the rain came pouring down in sheets. I kid you not my dear friends it could not have been any worser and there was I--out in it all. Oh dear I did feel so sad. However, I noticed that the big shed was open so I scurried as quickly as possible towards that, and in I went. I am a bit afraid of this big shed, 'cos you may remember that I got locked in there one day for ever, nearly!

Now, my humans didn't know where I was and they were worried 'cos it was pouring and the wind was howling and a while later I heard my DH calling for me but I didn't move and he went inside again. Then later on, my MH called for me and she spent so long at the door that by the time she went inside again she was soaked, but still I didn't let her know where I was and she was a big bit worried, and I am sorry, but it was too wet for me.

Another while later and I heard my MH calling for me and this time I decided that I was 'Brave Squeak' so I gathered up all my intrepidness and raced towards her faster that I have ever run before. I bounced over the grass, straight through my fence, right across my garden and into my porch where my MH lifted me up and cuddled me 'cos she was so pleased to see me again.

But the strange thing was---the old dear was wetter than me! She had stood at the door so long that she was nearly ringing, but I had run so fast that the rain couldn't catch me. Phew!

I don't think I shall go out again tonight---but on the other paw!! Watch this space!

Monday Again

Wow. How quickly my week has gone! It seems just like minutes since it was last Monday. My MH told me that is a sign that I am getting old. Oh dear, I thought I was still a kitten, but I guess I am getting a wee bit older.

Anyway. It is Monday again and since my humans are creatures of habit, the day was much the same as every other Monday with my DH nipping off to the Cat Shop and my MH running round my house with her vacuum cleaner and her dusters. And me? Well, my days are not just as organised as theirs are. Once I have had my breakfast and my little drop of milk from my MH's cereal I see what the weather is doing and then I decide what to do. See?

So, after I had my breakfast and my milk, I nipped up onto my window sill and saw that the weather on my little island was still good, so I purred a 'cheerio' to the old dear and then I nipped out into the big wide world to see what was happening this Monday, and I liked what I found.

There are cows in the field in front of my house and sheeps at the back, so there was plenty of company for me whenever I wanted, and I knew that if I was needing a cuddle, I could always find the old dear and she would have one waiting for me. So I knew my day was going to be a good one. I wandered through the fields just having a wee sniff at lots of interesting things and it was while I was in mid-sniff I saw my MH taking her washing out to hang it up and I raced across the field to meet her and it made her smile when I took one of my very special leaps through the fence and landed with a 'plop' in my garden. I raced towards her and then ran up the clothes pole while she stood and watched me and then I jumped down beside her and purred as she stroked me.

And that is how my day went. In and out and in and out, but I had a great time and I was outside when my DH comed home so I ran to meet him too and that made him happy. I do like it when I can make them smile.

A Lovely Sunday

We have all had a very good day in my house. One of our lazy days which we all like so much. My MH didn't do very much at all and my DH did a wee bit if tidying up outside with my help, of course! The weather wasn't too bad although a wee bit colder than the other days so I was quite happy nipping in and out whenever I felt like it and I knew that whenever I went inside again, I could find my MH and have a seat and a cuddle, so I thought my day couldn't get any perfecter.

But I was wrong! I had decided to have a snooze on one of my beds and I was in the middle of a lovely dream when I heard my friend S. coming in my house, so I ran into the living room to see her and I got lots more cuddles. I like when she comes to see me and she likes seeing me too.

I am going to have a rest now and then I think I shall have a wander outside before bedtime, but it will depend on the weather 'cos it has been raining and it is a bit colder now, so I will have to make a decision later on.

But no matter what I decide, I have had a very good Sunday and I hope you have had a good day too.

A Longer Message

I was a bit lonely last night when my humans went away out, but between you and me, I was quite happy that the window was shut 'cos it was wet and windy and I wouldn't have been going out anyway. However, I did manage out for a while when they comed home but it was a rather wild night and I didn't really enjoy it. AND, it was very dark! I didn't stay out too long and as soon as I went in I plonked my adorable little body on my MH's knee and she told me all about the night they had had.

A friend of my MH is a music teacher and she brought nine growed up childrens to play a concert for all the peoples on my island and they were great. There were nine fiddle players, and accordionist and a keyboard player and they played lots and lots of tunes which everybody loved. There was a break for supper and then some dancing before they had to go away on the boat again, but my humans said they had a super time, and I am happy for them.

We have all had a very good day and my humans have been a bit lazy and with me all the time and I liked that. My MH tooked this picture of me when I was having a snooze and we are sure you will like it. I was cuddling my wee moose in my wee hoose and when my MH saw me, she said 'aaww' and she smiled.

Maybe you will do the same?

Friday, 23 September 2016

Just to let you know.....

....that we are all very well, but because my MH is a tad busy today and going out early tonight, we thought we would put on a short message so that you didn't worry about me.

I am still getting out to play lots and lots and of course today is string day, so all is well in the world of Squeak.

There are lots of people's coming to my island tonight to play music so I shall tell you all about it tomorrow when I will have a longer message for you.

Thursday, 22 September 2016


I am still having the very bestest of fun. I don't know what has happened to our weather, but my little weather man friend has sent me warm sunshine and a nice little breeze which is absolutely perfect for this adorable little puss.

As soon as I had finished my breakfast I was outside enjoying all the sunshine and then after I had wandered around for a while I went back inside for my little drink of milk. I made my humans laugh 'cos when I went in, my MH was reading her paper but I just sat on the chair and stared at her as hard as I could possibly stare until my DH asked her what I was wanting and she held out her dish for me and I lapped up all the milk while they both laughed. I don't need to be able to talk!

We had some visitors later on in the morning and it was our friends N. and M. with their two little grandchildren who loved me to bits and wanted to take me home. My MH said she was so proud of me 'cos I let them stroke me even though they weren't as gentle as my humans but then they are just little childrens and they loved it especially when I purred for them.

My DH was busy in the afternoon 'cos he decided to paint our greenhouse and me and the Boss went out to see how he was getting on. He is hoping that we have another good day tomorrow so that he can get it finished.

I will let you know.

More Fun

I am having really good fun just now. The weather is still good enough for me to be outside lots of the time and my MH was outside with me today so that was fun. It was a tad breezy but the old dear decided to hang out her washing so I had to go with her to make sure she didn't fly away to Stromness. Yes. It was THAT breezy! I had to be very careful that I didn't get blowed away too, but we were both fine.

We had a quiet day having lots of seats and cuddles and I liked that, but then all the childrens came for guitar lessons and the peace and quiet disappeared out into the wind. Oh dear! Actually, I don't mind the childrens 'cos they all think I am adorable--naturally!--and they stroke me lots. J. even asked my MH if he could take me home! He asks her that every time he comes to my house and she always says no. In fact she told J. that she would give away my DH before me! I think she is kidding but I'm not telling him just in case! Hee hee

It has been good fun on my little island just now ans I am hoping that this good weather will last a long time. My little paws are crossed.

Fun Day

I have spent my day wandering about my garden and the fields having a chat to the sheeps and the baby cows and I have loved every single second of it. Plus I got a big surprise one of the times I went back indoors 'cos my MH was changing the duvet covers and that meant playtime for us. Yippee!

Because she was away out yesterday, she had lots of housework to do, but because the weather was so good on my little island I didn't mind as I was able to get out to play and not hear the awful vacuum cleaner, but when I nipped in the window to see how my humans were getting on, I noticed it was changing beds time and I had great fun playing in the covers and getting tickled every time my MH lifted me off. BUT! It is not just for fun that I do theses things. Oh no, no, no. Just think of the exercise I get when I jump back onto the bed after the old dear has lifted me off. It makes my adorable little legs all strong. See? I do like to keep myself in very good shape.

It didn't take my MH too long to do all her work and then we had a seat on my couch together and I lay on her knee and purred as she stroked my little lugs and told me she loved me.

So, my day so far has been a very good one. I am very happy just wandering about seeing what is happening on my island and then nipping inside whenever I need pampering. Brilliant.

Guess work

Since my humans were both away from my house today, most of what is written here is guess work on my MH's part, although she knows me so well that she will probably get it right.

We were all up quite early but there was still time for me and my MH to have a seat on my couch and our usual morning chat and then they told me they were going away to leave me and I was a bit sad, so I decided to go back to bed for a while. I was going to stay there until the humans came home, but I could feel the sun warm on my adorable little body, and I decided that it would be much better outside and so I wandered out into the fields and I was so glad that I did.

My little island was HOT! The sun was shining and it was as warm as summer, so I found a lovely little spot in the long grass and I had my snooze there and it was just magic. I have some animal friends in the fields at the front of my house and at the back so no matter where I wandered I had some company and I like that.

We had a beautiful sky last night so the old dear tooked these pictures for you and I hope you like them. I am settled down on my MH's knee while she is writing this and my adorable little head is on the keyboard and every time she writes a sentence she stops and rubs my lugs and that makes me happy so I am hoping that she writes lots of sentences for you!

A Great Sunday

I am liking being the boss in my house. I have had lots and lots of attention, but I haven't been too greedy and I have made sure that my humans are not being overworked looking after me. I am just that kind of puss!

As normal, it was a lazy Sunday in my house with my humans just doing little bits of things and the weather was so good that we were all outside for a long time together and you know how happy that makes me. My DH was in and out of our greenhouse but me and my MH watched Andy winning his tennis match and then when he was finished, she decided that she would cut the grass before the next match started 'cos it was lovely and warm outside. I went out with her and just followed her round my garden until she was finished and then it was back on to my couch to watch more tennis, but our team didn't win and that was a shame.

I am to be left all alone tomorrow as my MH is going to Stromness to meet her friends and of course the old boy is going to the Cat Shop. My little weather man friend told me that the weather will still be good on my little island tomorrow so my humans will be able to leave the window open for me to nip in and out at will.

Question. Who is will and how will I know him? Hee hee

Saturday, 17 September 2016

Another Super Day

Remember I told you that I was going to be the boss in my house today? Well, I was and I liked it lots. My humans didn't have very much to do, so there was oodles of time for me. I got lots of cuddles and they played with me for a long time so I was a very happy little Squeak.

But I had a favourite time through the night. I was lying beside my MH and I heard her wakening up, but it was in the middle of the night so it was very dark and I couldn't see her and she couldn't see me, but I crept onto her chest and I sat there and purred while she stroked me and whispered to me so that nobody else could hear us and that made me feel a very special puss. But then, I AM a very special puss, sure I am?

My little weather man friend has sent me some lovely weather and I have been out playing nearly all day and that uses up all my energy and makes me happy too. My MH went away to do crafty things with her friends so me and my DH watched Andy and his brother playing tennis and my MH was back in time to see the finish of the match and we were very happy when they won. We will need to wait till tomorrow to see what will happen but we have everything crossed for them.

It is a lovely night now on my little island, so I am having a seat with the old dear and then I am heading outside to see what is happening. I have been promised another special day tomorrow and my MH won't be going out so we will watch the tennis and then see what we feel like doing.

But I know they will do whatever I want! MAGIC!!

Friday Fun

We didn't need to get up too early this morning 'cos all the painting work and cleaning up work is finally finished and I for one am a very happy puss. And---my MH told me a secret--that she is very happy too, and a wee bit very tired. So we are all very happy that it is finally all done.

We had a very lazy morning and the weather was even quite good, so as soon as my adorable little tum was filled up, I was off into the outside to see what was happening, but it was quiet so I nipped back in just in time to get my milk. I like that---lots.

My friend M. came to see me but then she took my MH away to Stromness for the afternoon, so it was just me and my DH, but he remembered to play with me and the string so it was fine and the old dear wasn't away too long. When she comed home to me, we sat on my couch and we watched Andy playing his tennis and we were sad when he didn't win, but he looked so tired we were more sad for him.

I am looking forward to a very peaceful weekend and I have made a list---well, in my adorable little head!--- of all the things I want my humans to do with me. AND--they have promised that I am the Boss for the en-tire weekend.

I am so looking forward to that!

Just Us

I wakened up very early this morning and had a wee wander round my house and when I looked out the window, all the world had disappeared and it was just us left. That's not really true, but it's what it felt like 'cos the mist was thick and I couldn't see anything at all except white, so I decided to go back to bed.

Me and my MH got up a while later and it was just the same. All damp and misty, so I decided that I would just stay indoors until it cleared up, and guess what? It didn't! It is night time now and it is just the same. However, I decided that I would go out anyway and had a long walk after my dinner, but there were no birdies and even my little cow friends were too far away for me to see them, so I wasn't very happy and I just went home again for a seat on my MH's knee and a cuddle.

I had a good day and helped my MH do some of her housework and I went into our greenhouse with my DH but just for a little time 'cos he wasn't doing anything exciting and to be honest dear friends, I was a tad bored, so oft I went and I was very glad that I did 'cos when I was sitting on my window sill I saw lots of little birdies playing on our pampas grass and that made me very happy.

I think it is like birdie helter skelter 'cos they fly to the top of one of the feathery leaves and when they sit on it, it goes down to the ground where they hop off and fly to the top again and they did this lots and lots of times and sometimes they hung upside down on the feathery things and let the wind blow them up and down and sideways, so I think they had very good fun indeed.

I loved watching them and I hope they come back tomorrow, but I hope this mist blows away some place else so that I can see my world again.

Wednesday, 14 September 2016


Finally! The painting is finally all finished for ever and ever! Am I happy? No, I am delirious! I thought I was safe today when my DH went away to the Cat Shop, but then the old dear appeared with the paint pots, roller and brushes and I knew she was going to do more painting. Boo.

We did manage a quick chat on my couch before she started and she told me she wouldn't be long, but that was a fib 'cos it took her AGES! I had a play outside, and then a sleep and another play before she put all the paint things away again so there wasn't an awful lot of time for me until my DH comed home again.

It is much better tonight 'cos we are sitting on my couch and I am being cuddled and my adorable little lugs are getting scratched and I like that. AND my humans have promised that all the painting is finished so that is the bestest news I have heard for a long time.

I got a surprise last night when my MH asked me if I wanted to go outside while she tooked some pictures of the beautiful sunset. It was nearly nine o'clock in the night time and the sky was beautiful so she has put some pictures of it on here so that you can see it too.

I had a run round my garden and up the clothes poles and I had a really good time so I am hoping there will be another lovely sunset tonight.

Good News and Bad News---again!

I have had a very good day----well, the most of it was good, but I did hear a bit of news which I did not like at all. However, that is for later.

My day started off as normal with me wiring into my breakfast then heading outside to have a chat to my little birdie friends and back in just in time for my drink of milk. I have it timed to purr-fection now and it always makes my MH giggle.

It was just a normal day after that with my MH doing some housework and me and my DH working in the greenhouse. We are still bringing in some lovely little tomatoes for my MH and she likes that lots. Her housework didn't take too long so there were lots of times that me and her had a seat and a chat on my couch and those are my very favourite times, and today I had lots of favourite times.

But, then it got not so good 'cos my DH arrived with his sander and started work on the hallway outside my bedrooms and when I listened to what they were saying I discovered that the old dear has decided to paint that tomorrow 'cos it is the same blue as she painted the porch and the study and they have decided to get it all over and done with!

I understand why she wants to do it, but I am not happy and with my DH away to the Cat Shop I shall have nobody to cuddle into when the old dear is playing with her brushes and paint! Sigh. However, she has promised it won't take too long and as soon as she is finished, she will cuddle me until I am full up with cuddles.

That will take a long, long time but I haven't told her that. I hope you like the picture of my birdie friends when they were having a feed today. I like watching them.

Monday, 12 September 2016

Monday Again...

... and not a paint brush in sight! Even the vacuum cleaner didn't upset me today 'cos it just meant that my house was right back to normal again and normal I like--although! I did hear my humans saying that there was just one other wee bit of painting that they might do later on but since it is just a wee space that needs to be painting, it shouldn't take too long. I will cope 'cos I am strong and an intrepid little puss, but it doesn't mean I have to like it, does it?

Anyway, that's for another day. Today was good but the weather wasn't and it started off wet and windy so I had a very quick scoot outside after my breakfast and was back indoors for my little drop of milk before I got soaked to my skin. My DH went away to the Cat Shop and my MH went down to my friend S.'s house but she was back beside me in a wee while and she told me that S. would be home tonight, so she doesn't need to go away and leave me any more.

I lay on the back of my couch and just watched as she did all her housework and she talked to me all the time and I liked that. I managed to give her a wee fright though. I had wandered off and my MH didn't know where I was. She went into the spare room and noticed that the wardrobe door was open and she thought that my DH had left it open so she closed it. A minute later, it opened again so she closed it--again. Then it opened AGAIN and just before she managed to close it another time, guess who came out of it? Yes! It was me! Squeak!! I had been having a wee prowl and of course my MH didn't know I was inside so she just chuckled when I popped out.

Oh I just love it when that happens!

Sunday, 11 September 2016

A Very Normal Sunday

My poor old MH didn't want to get up this morning 'cos she was still a wee bit tired, so I just cuddled in beside her and we had another snooze till we really had to get up. We didn't do very much and my first stop was right on to her knee after I had my breakfast and I sat there till I got my little drink of milk and then I was off.

It was a lovely sunny day so I was desperate to get out to play and I had a super, duper time just taking my time wandering through the grass which is getting long outside my garden and in some place it is long enough for me to hide in as long as I remember to flatten the adorable little lugs!

My humans had a very easy day and didn't do any work in my house so there was always somebody there for me when I came home again although my MH had to go to feed my friend S.'s pussy cat and chooky hens and then she went out to do some of her craft things with her friends, so me and my DH just waited till she comed home again and this evening we are going to watch television together 'cos it has started to get windy and it is raining and not really weather for a puss to be outside in ther night.

It is not a very pleasant evening at all so I shall be staying in until my little trip outside just before bedtime. And, I don't think I shall be out very long!

Saturday, 10 September 2016

Settled Saturday.

We are right back to normal in my house now and I for one am exceedingly happy. I do not like all this upset and I do not like being ignored, but all that has changed now and my house is back the way it should be AND I have had millions of cuddles, so I am happy, happy, happy!

My MH went away down to my fried S.'s house to feed her pussy cat and the hens too but she wasn't away too long and I just played in my garden till she comed home again. It was a wee bit windy but it was warm and dry so I was happy outside and soon I saw her little kangaroo coming back so I waited till it had stopped and then I ran to meet her and she tickled me when she saw me and I purred lots.

After that, she spent a wee while putting all the things back in my porch and my DH was sorting out the big cupboard and soon they were all finished and we were all very happy. They are a wee bit tired, but they are pleased with what they have done this week.

I asked my MH to take some pictures for you and she did just that. There is a picture of my porch and it is a lovely blue colour now and I like it. The study is blue too and this is where my humans do lots of printing and crafting things and I sit on the chair or the couch and just watch them. I like this room and sometimes I have a snooze there after my dinner. I can see all the sheeps and the cows when I look out of the window so I like that lots.

The other picture is of the big cupboard which is all white now. This is the cupboard I sometimes get shut in by accident, of course. My MH keeps all her towels in behind the doors and sometimes when she is in there I creep in and climb the ladders and then with a death-defying leap I land with a delicate plop on top of the towels and as well as frightening the life out of the old dear, it makes her laugh.

Sometimes I creep in and my humans don't see me and that's when I get shut in and my MH says it is the only time I make a 'meow' sound. I do this so that one of them can hear me, but all the other times I make a squeaking kind of sound and you all know that's how I got my name.

I hope you like my pictures. I am a very happy Squeak tonight and I know I shall be the centre of attention for quite some time. I shall make sure of that!!

It should really be two 'yippees' tonight---one because it is Friday and you all know that means string fun for this adorable little puss, but the biggest yippee is because finally, and at long last, the painting is all finished! Oh, I am beside myself with joy. I was having a snooze on my couch and just happened to wake up in time to see my DH carrying all the painting stuff out to the shed and I kid you not my dear friends, if I could have done a cartwheel I would have done one right there and then! Note to self, learn how to cartwheel.

My house isn't quite back to normal yet 'cos all the things have got to be put back in their right place but that won't take too long and it is something that I can help with. I don't need to stay away in case I get painted on so I will have lots of company from now on. Tomorrow I shall show you some pictures of my new painted rooms and I am sure you will like them.

My DH did make it up to me at lunch time when he played with me for a long time with the string off the box of messages and that made me very happy. I love playing with my humans or even just sitting with them, and I do get a bit fed up when they are too busy to spend lots of time with me, so today has been much better and now that all their hard work is finished, there will be lots more time for me.

So, another great big 'YIPPEE'!!

Getting Better

Things are getting a wee bit better in my house. Not a lot, but a little bit. I shall give you an update 'cos I know you will be interested. My DH has been putting everything back into the study and getting rid of lots of things that he doesn't want any more. My MH did her housework and then she went down to see S.'s pussy cat and had a wee chat with her before she came back to me with lots of cuddles. That was the good bit, but then when I saw her putting on her 'painting' clothes, I knew it wasn't going to be a great afternoon and it wasn't too brilliant but only for a wee while.

She tooked herself into the big cupboard and started painting in there but since it is just a cupboard, she was out again soon and needing a seat on my couch with and it is only a perfect seat if it has me sitting on her knee. We were both very happy.

The weather hasn't been very good but I did manage out to play quite a few times and I was able to have a chat to the little baby cows and that was good. I haven't been doing anything very exciting but I was watching all my little birdie friends playing on our pampas grass and when my DH saw me watching them, he tooked this picture for you, and we hope you like it.

A Funny Day

.... but a good day. It is getting a bit better in my house and I have sent you a couple of 'before and after' pictures of the painting that my humans have been doing. The 'after' picture isn't it all finished yet, but you can see what they have been doing and hopefully I will be able to show you the room all finished tomorrow.

Anyway, back to my 'funny' day. My MH's alarm went off at half past seven in this morning and she got up early 'cos she was going to the dentist, so we both got up and had a very early breakfast and then I nipped out to see what was happening on my little island and even then, it was quite warm so I had a leisurely stroll round my estate before I went back inside again.

I was just settling into another good snooze when my DH's alarm went off and we both got up and I got another wee feed from him. I didn't tell him that I already had my breakfast! Well, I didn't want to hurt his feelings. So, he went away to the Cat Shop and I went out to play again and I was a wee bit sad 'cos I was going to be on my own all day, but then I noticed the little kangaroo coming up the path and my MH was home again! Oh I was a happy Squeak.

We had a seat and a chat and then she started to tidy up the study and put some things back so I just spent the afternoon nipping in and out to see how she was getting on---and she was doing fine. One time we were having a rest in my living room and we noticed the mummy cow and her little babies right outside my window so she tooked these pictures for you. She said she just wished she could send you a sound picture 'cos when the mummy cow saw her taking pictures of the little baby cows, she made the loudest 'moo' sound you even heard. I was a wee bit frightened but my MH cuddled me and I wasn't scared any more. They are lovely little cows but the mummy can be a bit angry at times so I shall have to be careful if I go near them.

Later on my DH comed home again and then the little childrens came back for guitar lesson and I lay on my couch and listened to them. They are not too bad now, but the bit I like the best is when they cuddle me. One of them wanted to take me home but my MH said a great big NO, and we all know why, don't we?

'Cos she loves me MILLIONS!

A Tad Fed-Up

I suppose you will have worked out that the painting is still going on in my house and I am not the centre of attention as I should be. Oh, I got a few cuddles and there was time for a wee seat on my MH's knee when she was having a rest, but it was not at all as it should have been. I do understand of course. I am just that kind of puss, but I am not happy.

We had our usual morning with the old dear sitting on the couch and me sitting on the old dear until she had finished her breakfast. I got my wee drop of milk and then headed out to play 'cos it was warm although a bit windy, but I was quite happy playing. There are two little baby cows in the field in front of my living room and if my MH isn't too busy tomorrow I will ask her to take a picture of them for you. They are lovely and I think I shall have a chat with them when I am out for my nightly sojourn.

I was out for a long time and got quite a surprise when I plopped back in through the window 'cos my DH was busy painting the study and my MH was painting in the big cupboard, so I just wandered back into my living room and had a snooze on the back of my couch. Sigh!

My DH is off to the Cat Shop tomorrow so he won't be painting and my MH told me that she will be putting the stuff back into the study so she won't be painting either, so she told me that there will be lots of time for me and that is just fine and dandy in my book, thank you very much!

Another Monday

... and not the greatest Monday for yours truly. Not too bad but not as good as it should have been. Remember I told you that my humans were starting to do some painting? Well, when my DH nipped away to the Cat Shop I decided that they had changed their minds, but then I looked into the study and it was all upside down with all the furniture not where the furniture should have been and I realised that I might just be wrong.

Then I saw my MH getting the paint and the brushes and the step ladder all ready and I knew I was definitely wrong! She disappeared into the study and started painting all the white wood and I just lay on the back of my couch and had a rest until she was finished. I didn't go to see her 'cos I knew there wasn't a lot of room for me and I didn't want to end up white and shiny. I prefer being black and shiny! Hee hee

She was there for a while but finally she came out and when her little hands were all clean she came right to me and gave me a great big cuddle so I forgived her for neglecting me. However, I am going to have to suffer the same neglect tomorrow 'cos there is still more painting to do. Ho hum.

I guess I will just have to get used to it until it is all finished and then I shall make sure I get all the cuddles due to me.

Scintillating Sunday

I am still on the 's' page, but I don't know what page I will get to tomorrow! Watch this space. We didn't need to get up too early 'cos the painting hasn't started yet. The magic plan in my house is that my MH will start painting the gloss work while my DH is having a rest at the Cat Shop, so I think I shall have to be very careful when I ask for a cuddle.

As soon as we had finished our breakfast my MH went out and did her grass feeling routine again, but decided it was too wet to cut it, so we just sat for a while together on my couch and had a wee chat which I liked. After lunch time, she went away out to do some crafty things with her friends and me and my DH just sat and had a rest, which was just as well 'cos as soon as the Boss came home, she felt the grass again and decided it was dry enough now so the lawn mower comed out and me and her ran all over the garden behind it.

Well, she was more behind it than me. I was sort of at the side of it---like on the path or sitting on the benches watching her. But I know that makes her happy and then when she is finished I always have a roll on the new cut grass and I like that, so it was OK by me that she cut my grass after all.

I hope I will be able to write to you tomorrow but it will depend on whether or not the Boss is too tired, although she usually is NEVER too tired for this adorable little Squeak.

Scintillating Saturday

I am on the 'S' page of my dictionary! I have had a simply super Saturday and have loved every single second of it. Enough? OK!

We have all had a good, easy day with just a little bit of work for my humans and a visit to my friend S.'s house for my MH while I looked after the old boy and made sure he didn't do anything wrong --- and he didn't. Phew.

I played outside lots of times and it was still quite warm on my little island so I always managed to find a warm spot to snuggle down in and just lay and listened and I liked it a lot. One time when I comed home my DH was taking all the furniture out of our study and I didn't know what was going on, but when I sat on my MH's knee I heard my humans saying that they were going to start painting it next week, so I guess there won't be a lot of time for me and if I get too close to my MH I might end up a lovely shade of pale blue! Oh dear.

We are all settling gown now to watch Andy playing tennis and we all want him to win so everything is crossed for him. When he is finished I shall head outside again and see if it is still quite warm and I can settle down outside before bedtime.

Yep. I like my Saturdays and I hope you have had a good day too.

Fantabulous Friday

Oh I do like Fridays. Well, I like most of my days but some are just a smidgeon better that other ones and Fridays are normally super duper.

It started off a good day with the postman bringing a parcel that was just for me and then as soon as I had gobbled up my breakfast I was out to play. Why is it that sleeping always makes me hungry? Anyway, I filled up my adorable little tum and went to have a wee chat with my birdie friends and when we were having a wee blether my MH tooked this picture for you. I think this is a very pretty birdie, don't you?

Both my humans went out for a while as my DH had to go to the pier to collect our boxes and my MH was going to see my friend S.'s puss 'cos she is away her holidays and my MH goes to keep the pussy cat from getting lonely and then she comes back to me and gives me lots of cuddles.

While she was putting away all the messages me and my DH played with the string and I had super fun. I just love playing with the string but only if there is a human at the end if it! It's not the same if I do it myself so I always ask my humans to play and of course they always do.

We played for a while and then I had a seat on my MH before I nipped up onto the back of my couch for my siesta.

Well, a puss gets tired having fun!

Intrepid Squeak

I have been just a tad naughty this morning and I nearly got into trouble---- but I didn't! Me and my MH got up this morning and as usual, I nipped up onto my window sill to see what the day was like and I knew it was windy 'cos the pampas grass was shaking a lot so I decided to try the door and see if that was better, so the old dear had to stop eating her breakfast and come with me to the door, but I decided it was just the same and I went back into my living room with my MH following me and muttering to herself----well, I wasn't listening! Hee hee

I really wanted out but I didn't want to get blowed about so I tried a couple of times and then I went into my secret hiding place and I found my intrepidness and then I asked my DH to let me out and when he opened the door, I just nipped out first time! My MH wasn't best pleased but my DH told her she didn't open the door properly for me and he knew how to do it. He was just joking I think!

I stayed out for a while as the vacuum was racing all over my house and it was safer outside, but once it was quiet, I went back inside again and chose one of my many snoozing places for a little nap. And that was my day really. In for some snoozes and cuddles and then outside for wee whiles at a time 'cos it was still windy, but then in the afternoon it quietened down and I was able to stay out much longer until the little midges decided they wanted to play with me and I said 'no thank you' and went inside again.

I am hoping that by the time I am ready to go back out tonight all the midges will have gone to bed. I have just got rid of the pesky swallows so I don't want to be troubled by the pesky midges, do I? No indeed!
