Back to normalcy with a winding thrump, after a smidge over two weeks with my BFF, where we enjoy snacks, cats, stitching and bitching (as in kvetch at the idiocy of some and how their get their knotted thong wedged up their butts being mean to others), foods we normally do not have like sausage, egg and chips! We wandered out and about, even got to the seafront esplanade and had an ice cream, with a flake too!!

We both went out for pedicures and I got my hair harvested (not saying it needed it but the vacuum had to be emptied midway as the bucket was full). Jobs and errands got taken care of. And I was spoilt rotten with attention. I love my BFF time, such fun, we even kareoke-d into the wee hours remembering lyrics to songs we hadn’t heard in decades. There were a couple of times we both laughed so hard, and kept setting each other off again, until we almost ‘oops-ed’ ourselves.

Of course Mickey (#NotMyCat) and Ginge (#NotMyCat2) were in hog heaven, practically getting food on demand, well Moocher does have a penetrating stare. Ginge is still a little timid but did settle on the sofa between us on the day of rain. With windows and doors left ajar from early morning until bed time they had free range to come and go at their whim, which they did. BFF bought a brush and Mickey really seemed to enjoy stretching out on the floor and being brushed, the implement soon choked with his white fur. As for the scratch mat, it’s a work in progress.

Avoiding the football we indulged in some serious binge viewing as well as a few films and documentaries

The Spy Who Loved Me
Pilgrimage (bbc iPlayer)
Octopus Teacher (Netflix)

Rat Race
Frankie & Grace (Netflix series)
The Pharmacist (Netflix documentary)
FireFly Lane (Netflix series)

All too soon as always she’s packing the suitcase, putting the duvet back on the bed and we’re waiting for the taxi to whisk her away……we restart the clock for when she can return to play again.

      Awe, being called adorable when you’re too far into your fifties, lol. We’ve walked some unusual scary paths, we are just so utterly comfortable with each other, our pj-party weeks somehow remind us both we are still,ourselves underneath all those grown up obligations and trials.

    What a wonderful itinerary. Your binge viewing reminded me of one week we decided to make our own Film Fest, when we visiting a city. At that time there was no cinema here, no smart TV available nor film hire. There was one film on our list we couldn’t fit in because of its timing so it was replaced with another. All-in-all we made a great selection and the award ceremonies supported some of our tastes.

    Sounds like you had enough hair to sell, or to make bedding with for ye felines (not your cats). They obviously had a whale of a time. Do you find pedicures are like what they used to be?

      The brushed cat hair was thrown outside, the local birds have luxurious lining this season, lol. Pedicures, my lady who visits the house does a more thorough job, but it was okay. My hair is so thick it needed serious cropping about three inches all over, if it had been a better length I would have sent it to those who make the wigs for children.
