So those of us who live in the UK, any of you melted?
Goodness, it’s been hot and it was hard to keep the temperature down in my flat, especially on Thursday, with the fan on.
A frozen bottle in use again for my hamster, Daz, since it got very hot. Placed outside the cage, so he feels it along the cage wall where he usually sleeps, giving him the option to cool down.
They had to be swapped regular on Thursday and because the ice inside the bottle would have all melted before me coming home from work, I wonder how he would be.
This was where I found him. In the corner, under his hamster wheel, looking because he was aware of me while taking a photo, but prior to that, he was all curled up. He soon curled up again, after.
So this weekend started as of yesterday, with me having an annual leave in both jobs. So I have a nice long weekend.
It’s also a weekend I have been looking forward to the last 2 weeks, after deciding what to do. I will tell you what it is in a minute. 🙂🤭
You may remember many posts ago, as it was earlier in the year, that I hoped to visit Stonehenge. But because the coach pick up wasn’t local, I didn’t end up booking it. (Not that now we know how things are now, it would have been cancelled anyway.) Had it happened, that day trip would have been yesterday.
You may remember I had an alternative in mind, after realising the coach wasn’t a local pick up for that day trip, but I said I would share that later. Well that alternative is not happening either. But even if it was, I wouldn’t have gone because of the anxiety of travelling and also not wanting to go in a cafe. The alternative I had in mind was Kitty Cafe in Nottingham.
So… going with a replacement for Kitty Cafe, but without going anywhere, after giving it some thought, I decided I was going to have a bit of a cat theme weekend. 🙂 Meow. 🐱
So yesterday, I made shortbread biscuits using a cat-shaped cutter. Here they are, first lot not long come out of the oven. 🙂
I shared some with my two neighbours below and enjoyed mine, later.
I then coloured in a cat picture using coloured pencils. (One of a few free PDF cat pictures, after googling for them.)
Later in the afternoon, I watched a dvd, ‘A Street Cat Named Bob.’
Today, I did another batch of cat shaped shortbread.
I plan to colour in another cat picture, using coloured pencils and enjoy a few of my shortbread cat biscuits, with mugs of tea.
Then at some point today, watch a Japanese anime feature dvd called, ‘The Cat Returns.’ I have not watched an anime type before, so this will be a new experience for me. The dvd is Japanese, with English subtitles and English dub.
Tomorrow, will just be colouring any cat pictures I have left, then watching dvd’s not related to cats.
In between my cat themes I have planned, the rest will just be relaxation and whatever else I fancy doing. I have some cd’s from my neighbour to play, so will probably play some of them.
One I have enjoyed playing earlier this week was ‘Piano Man The Very Best of Billy Joel.’ There was a dvd with this too. Listening and watching, I realise I have heard a few more songs of his than I originally thought.
What’s your weekend like?
