Our Weekend In Pictures 27/4/2013


Our weekend in Pictures

Still cold but warm enough at least to do some outdoor play..with coats and hats, oh British weather..

We make the most of our Saturday mornings before I trundle off for my shift at the pop up shop. I've been inspired to create so much more since starting there, so even if I'm not making the big bucks (far from it ha!) then I'm taking it as a positive experience all the same.

I get home at quarter past seven and tip toe up the stairs to find Tom and Wilf snuggled up reading books (or hey lets get real watching a little Dora on the laptop). Wilf hears me on the last step and looks over, you know what the first thing he does? Not smiling and waving and crying 'mama!' like I day dreamed  about on the train home, no its the little fist clench pump sign for nursing of course. Hurrah the milk maid is home!

Yesterday was spent doing Sunday things, eating together, a run around IKEA (yes on a Sunday we are IKEA natives we can handle it) and a little tidying. Then Tom heads off for a quick catch up with friends, Wilf is tucked up in bed, I head downstairs to feed the cats to find..
..the cats already eating their dinner, a beheaded mouse! Poor poor little thing.

So after calling Tom in near tears ''I could have saved it if I was only a little quicker *sob sob*'' I hide upstairs, as Tom is the meat eater of the household it's only fair he deal with dead animals right? 

Only Tom got home and the mouse is gone, no where to be found.

Can cats eat a whole mouse? Tail and all? Or is (as I'm imagining) there a dead mouse somewhere in our home..oh gawd

Ha, yes, E does the same milk sign to me! It's nice to feel that you have a special (milky) place in their heart (and belly)! x

They probably ate the whole thing. My cat used to do that.

I found a dead robin and a rat under a chair in our living room the other day, still intact. I was too scared to remove them, and felt bad about the robin. If only she could just catch rats?! At least there weren't guts anywhere, or I caught her playing/torturing them...

and according to my sister they will eat EVERYTHING, other than the waste passages apparently, as she witnessed her cat eat a whole rabbit, bones and all.

Glad you had a nice weekend other than that!

Lovely photos :) I love the milk sign-I know it's suppose to reference cows but what it means to us and our babes is quite a bit more.

Sarah said...

Yep, they can eat the lot. and you know what I prefer it when Betty does - I hate waste and she is only going back to her old cats roots! I often get left the entrails which is delightful, but still better than a half dead creature you have to put out of its misery....

Wendy - Kelly :
Isn't it so lovely! It melted my heart the first time he did it..although sure he is just saying 'hey I want some of that good stuff' it means so much more to us! xx

fritha strickland said...

Abi - Oh god! I would be SO upset if they ever bought a bird in! This is honestly the first time they have done anything like it. They are so dam lazy Tom reckons the mouse probably died of fright at the size of Rockie rather than being caught! x

fritha strickland said...

Jenny - Abi - Sarah OK so we are agreed, he ate it all. I hear what you are saying Sarah, I know thats what they are meant to do and that its probably a better way to go than traps but oh my sensitive veggie soul just cant take it! xx

fritha strickland said...

Laura - Yes! he is a dare devil! xx

Cute family. A day at a park is always a great way to bring out the fun in everyone.
