Caturday is upon us again! This week, apparently the best cat photo I’ve taken is this one of Gidget on Viv’s clothes. She was clearly unimpressed with me thinking that this was something that warranted having its photo taken πŸ˜‚

I forgot about Caturday until the next day again πŸ™ˆ At any rate, here’s Gidget, incensed that the magpies are dropping by regularly again after a couple of months in which we hardly saw them. Don’t these magpies understand that this is CAT territory! 😀

It’s Caturday! Here’s a pic of Gidget from earlier today, after she successfully convinced Viv to let her outside not on her leash, then promptly jumped the fence to the construction site next door 😩 When he went to look for her, she snuck back. Satisfied with a job well done

Had a really productive writing day yesterday, and then we were charged with babysitting Viv’s nephew, which meant hanging out with Gizmo’s parents, Beautiful and Patches! πŸ˜‚ They claimed lots of pats, scritchies and belly-rubs, as we watched five hours of The Simpsons πŸ™ˆ

Yesterday when we were taking Gizmo on his weekly beach walk, we encountered this ADORABLE puppy! It may have been overwhelmed by the amount of activity on the beach, or else just overdue for his nap, but he first collapsed between Viv’s feet for a nap, and then on Emma’s foot 🀣 Gizmo was VERY unhappy about this interloper, and whimpered jealously about his humans fussing over dogs that aren’t him…

I know it’s been really quiet on this blog lately, and I haven’t done a Caturday post in like a month, so why not address both issues in one go? πŸ™ˆ Here’s Gidget, chillin’ in one of her favourite spots (on a cardboard box). 🐈

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it! Last night Viv and I went on our customary Christmas Eve walk to check out all the light displays, so I’m attaching a couple of the best pictures I took of what we saw πŸ˜„

A house with lots of multicoloured lights all over it; there are also blue lights throughout a tree in front of the house and green and red lights along the front fence (the red lights are bow-shaped) The same house from more of a front-on angle, showing the lights on the house better. There's lights in the shape of Santa on his sleigh being pulled by reindeer, stars, a candy cane, another sleigh, a wreath, a Santa face, and the words β€˜HO HO HO’

Yesterday Viv and I went to babysit (or hang out with, really; she’s pretty responsible) Viv’s niece. What that also meant was… getting to hang out with their dog, Daisy! 😁 Daisy was a good sport about having his photo taken with me, only requesting many tummy rubs in return.

Viv and I are home from our little trip! So, I thought I should post some photos from all the stuff we did that I haven’t already posted about πŸ˜…

So, firstly: Yesterday, Viv and I went on a walk through bushland in Hepburn Springs! It was a well-signposted walking track and all that, but it was still a bit uneven, and there were some fallen trees over some sections of the track, so there was …

We’ve spent the afternoon at the Hepburn Springs Brewings Co. premises πŸ˜… Their playlist consists of too many bangers for these two millennials to be able to walk away!
