Thank You to Charlotte and Emily

WARNING!! This post may contain offensive (to some-but not me) cat behaviour and images of an unmade bed.. I am back in blogland after a few days on my sick bed. Here I must give a big Thank You to Charlotte and Emily for looking after me so well.
I don't even like Vegemite very much but for some reason that is what I craved spread on dry toast. Charlotte wanted to do a taste test on my toast but then accepted her own little taste on a saucer and gave her approval.
Emily was a concerned about the Saos.

I called for a new plate of Saos so Emily could lick and sniff the first two until she was satisfied a Sao would do me no harm.

So I'm on my sick bed looking around at all the pretty things in my room and thinking I might survive after all when I saw IT. That fan is filthy!! could even fall on me with the weight of dust, dirt, salt from the Lake and a fair amount of cat fur. Charlotte and Emily refuse to get up a ladder and clean it, they say it's not in their contract. First I've heard they have a contract, I think they are taking advantage of my weak state.

I can't complain as the girls have been so good to me and not left me alone for a minute. They've taken over my hot water bottle so I won't get too hot, forced me to rest on the very edge of the bed so it is easier for me to get out of bed and insisted on getting between my eyes and my library book so I don't suffer eye strain.

My sick bed reading. I mostly prefer English authors and I know Margaret Forster's new book won't dissapoint but I have been enjoying Jodi Piccoult's latest and must look for more of her books. I am so lucky to live in an area with such good libraries.


  1. Hope you are feeling well again soon.

    Thank goodness you have Charlotte and Emily to look after you. I can see that nursing has exhausted them and they need a good rest.

    Cats do have good instints, so if you see them leap off the bed quickly you should do so too as it could be that filthy fan about to come crashing down!

  2. Sorry, I mean cats have good instincts!

  3. Oh Sylvia, have you caught the dreadful lurgy that is doing the rounds down here at the moment? Ken and I have so far avoided it, but quite a few of our friends and family have got it. You mustn't be feeling too bad to be posting all those amusing comments and photos! One of our cats used to like Vegemite too, and we would scrape a bit on to a blunt knife and let him lick it.
    I have enjoyed all the Jodi Piccoult books that I've read, but my favourite was "The Plain Truth" about a girl who lived in an Amish village. It was a wonderful story.

  4. Adorable--and nothing offensive. I taught my little Sweetie (RIP) to eat from a spoon.

  5. Sorry to hear that you have been sick ! but apparently with such nice nurses you overcame the worst ! I had been sick too, a bad cold, now I feel better too. Cat's are the best bed warmers and they like when we are sick and stay in bed the whole day !

  6. I hope you are feeling better! This post made me smile ~ love that your kitties snuggled with you while you were ill. LOVE Jodi Picoult! I have read all her books. She is an amazing writer ~ so much research she must put into her writing.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  7. I was checking if you had a new post. Are you still not feeling well ?
    I had a bronchitis but now it's better I had to take antibiotics.

  8. I am feeling much better now thank you Gattina, antibiotics worked for me too.
    Now I am struggling with a new computer programme but hope to be posting again tomorrow.
