Blog by Yoyo the cat.


Once again Mum & Dad have failed to write the blog – so it’s down to me to do it.


Friday – Dad carried on with the forward shower and wired up the shower pump. First time it wasn’t exactly correct – but the second attempt it worked fine (actually he had a 50/50 chance of getting it right so if it didn’t work on the 2nd attempt he would not be able to call himself an electrician!). Mum spent the morning writing emails and letters.


In the afternoon they went out to the post office, then Dad went up to the DIY store to get some more plumbing bits. I think he must be planning to open his own store – he has so many bits now.


We then all watched a DVD and had another quiet night in. Highlight of the evening was me being sick – one too many cat treats I think!!


Saturday – is Market day. Mum & Dad got up early and after Koshka and I had a run around the deck before they locked us in and went off to the market. They failed to bring me back any fish. However they did see snails being sold today. Guess it must be snail season! The giant cabbages have nearly all gone – the picture below is one Mia took last weekend.


After they returned, mum and dad made lots of noise washing the decks. Koshka and I hate that bit – all we can hear is water being sprayed around – and we hate getting wet.


Dad then went back to his plumbing.
