Guest post by Mikey Moorey
The paw’s been on the other foot this week as we’ve all been taking care of mum.   As chief body warmer and pain distractor I take full credit for the return of her pink cheeks and appetite (licking out soup bowls hasn’t been much fun for me either so I I share her pain).  Mum says she’s very grateful for plump pillows, BBC Iplayer and the miracle of modern medicine.   I’m grateful she’s on the mend as I don’t like being beaten at my own sleep game and want to be let out.  Mum’s had that wistful look in her eye for sunshine, fresh air and mud under her nails and I know just how she feels.

    mikey is truly lovely – just the beast to aid a speedy recovery – so soft and gentle when he’s all sleepy and dozy and not pretending to be king of the neighbourhood or terrorising his lovely siblings – poppet the bedtime buddy and billy the movie lap cat

    So sory to hear that you haven’t been well Nic, and hope you are on the mend now. Aren’t cats just the most comforting companions? They seem to know when we need that little bit of extra love and attention.

    Get well soon Nic, cat’s make excellent companions for invalids and I’m sure Mikey is enjoying his nursing job.

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
