Week 5 Project 52

after the snow It seems strange to think it now, but this time last week we still had lots of snow.  We had snow for over a week and then it disappeared literally overnight.  We had great fun in it and took some lovely photos, but it was starting to hamper day-to-day life and I’d had enough of it for a little while at least.

Last Saturday evening we braved the snow and more crucially the ice to go for a family meal out at a local curry house.  It was my husband’s birthday on Monday and it was by way of being a birthday celebration meal.  It’s quite an upmarket curry house with plush decor and good quality food.

child eating shish kebabH had his usual choice: shish kebab.  He’s used to having it at home from our usual takeaway, but this one was a rather spicier version than he was used to.  Still he ate it all.  The poppadoms slipped down of course, in fact H wanted to eat the lot and we were lucky to get a look in.

Generally this week has been about life getting back to normal after the snow and we’ve spent quite a lot of time catching up with jobs and clearing the to do list (not that there isn’t loads still on there).

cats on a cats cradle being strokedOur cats didn’t have such a good week though.  Recently there has been a new cat on the block.  He’s a bit cheeky and has been hanging around our garden and hovering near the cat flap.  One evening this week, he actually came in.  We’ve had a cat flap for about 7 years at 2 different houses and this has never happened before.  Amber is a sensitive soul and he’s been most put out about it all: he’s been jumping at shadows and has acted very aggressively with our other cat as well.  Here’s H giving them some extra reassurance.

    Have a water pistol at the ready should the intruder make another appearance. That should stop it!

    We had an intruder cat early one morning, but we’d put the cat flap on in-only, in order to keep our cat, Grimalkin, inside once she comes later on in the evening. Intruder Cat therefore couldn’t get out and had a real panic, trying to get out of a closed window and running around the ground floor, until I let it out of the back door.
