Todays letter is C

C is for...

CAT: here's my eldest cat, Keilo. She has quite a haughty expression on her face here! She's quite a haughty cat actually, with brief bursts of intense lovingness where she strides about, kissing everything in sight (including the dog) and kneading with her paws. It doesn't take much for her to decide she's had enough though and waltz off. I think she has far too much alley cat in her (genetics darling) and is quite happy to sleep under a bush for hours. She would never dream of sleeping on your lap, but is quite happy to kip on the bed given half a chance.

This is Pippin, she's the youngest and a more naughty lively cat you'd be hard to find. She had mad sessions where she hops about flipping a toy in the air and sometimes those toys are real! *Eeeww!* She's also very loving and very vocal and will run into the room calling to be picked up and cuddled. She loves to be rubbed on her face and will lick my hand when I'm doing it as if she's letting me wash her!


Here's our little beauty! She's old, but immaculate and dry inside. She has 2 double beds which pack away so there's tables and stuff in the day. She has a little kitchen area with a fridge and a cooker, a bathroom with a portapotty and a sink. We haven't had the money to go away in her this summer, but we definitely will next summer. She's living at the front of the house at the moment.


The Grand Union Canal runs at the bottom of the hill so it's one of my favourite places to walk with Joe. There's some amazing sights along the canal bank. I've walked and cycled along alot of it.


My local country park is at the top of the hill. It's quite a wild area with lots of fields (including Rabbit Field, our name for a field full of rabbits which Joe loves), lots of trees, and an old ironstone railway. It has some amazing views aswell because it's right on top of one of the highest points in Northampton and you can pretty much see everything from there.

Thanks - it's nice to read about the everyday life of people in different countries. I'm doing the whole ABC *lol* I've never been to Ireland - it's on my 'to do' list. I've heard it's very beautiful. My Mums side of the family are Irish, so I really want to visit.
