Cats And Wrapping

Yes, I've actually finished my Christmas shopping AND wrapped everything! I did the wrapping last night with one eye on Coronation Street whilst simultaneously eating a bar of Cadburys. I also managed it without the "help" of Eddie, one of my cats (he likes to rip up wrapping paper like a thing possessed)
My colour choices for the wrapping are a bit dubious this year, I'm not quite sure what I was thinking to be honest. It started out ok with some pretty turquoise paper with circle design, complete with purple (what!) gift tags which I thought were gold until I got to the till but then couldn't be bothered to go back and change, and finished off with gold bows. The bows are very pretty but don't stick so I had to use sellotape on them as well ~ take note Sainsburys!
But at least it's done!

Here's a picture of Eddie keeping a close watch on my jewellery making. Notice the wonderful "studio" I work from aka the diningroom table!

He looks quite sweet doesn't he? He isn't. I christened him Satan's Cat when he was a kitten because of the mass destruction he would cause to various items including my lovely 3ft Devil's Ivy plant which he chewed at the bottom. I couldn't work out why the plant started to die off at the top until I caught him at it one day. Squirting him with water every time I saw him do it didn't make any difference so things had to get serious. I sprayed the plant with water then shook pepper on to the stems. I wasn't sure if it was working until the day I heard a little cat sneeze from the livingroom.............. The plant went on to live and so did Eddie obviously. It didn't stop him trying to cr*p in another plant on the windowsill though.

More Cats

This one's Charlie hanging over the top of the kitchen cupboard

He's quite well~behaved really compared to Eddie.

And this is Tuppence ~

She's a very pretty cat but does have a habit of taking a break from looking beautiful to have a cup of tea and a fag occasionally.

Enough of cats and wrapping, I'm off to look at beautiful beads and other jewellery~type lovely stuff on the internet!


  1. Gorgeous photos, love the cuppa and fag comment! Our Pepper was a bit like Eddie with the favourite plant situation. Even though he'd have a litte try close by, he'd make the effort to wander upstairs to wee and poo in the mini palm tree plant pot! Would drive us mad. Ended up putting orange peelings in there which seemed to work. The plant still lives (it's been a while), but looks rather poorly with slowly browing leaves! Have put some cat pics on my blog today too.

  2. Thanks Ellie's Treasures! Will have a look at your cat photos!
