Caturday treat from Thomas


Hi to all cats, cat owners, cat lovers  and every one else.

Today is Caturday

and we need to celebrate it.

Every day is a celebration of life for humans

and cats alike

as every day is special.

Today though I am dedicating this to beautiful Binky,

my friend in the Netherlands.

My owner got hold of another beautiful puzzle and we did it,

well my loyal feeder really did it.


Puss in Books a brilliant theme

So Adorable

It was such fun!

Now Binky I wanted to ask if you have read

all these books on this puzzle already,

if not I can really recommend them.

Let me explain:

The great Catsby – a classic

Looking Cool by K.T Chill – you won’t need that – you are a cool cat

Painting – Learn from Scratch – real fun- …. the scratching…..



A Purrfect Life – more great ideas to our near purrfect life.

A Purrfect storm – famous also in the human world

To kill a mockingbird –  another classic for us

Claw and Order – If you missed the TV series, enjoy the read

The Mousetrap – What can I say a MUST READ





Feeling Cat tastic – Self Help  – Quiet useful – living with less Cat tastophies

The British Mewseum  –  a useful cat-alogue

Catmandu – a travelguide – very interesting indeed

Street Life by Al.E.Cat – a fun story



Everything about everything by I.B. Curious –  a must read – specially for kittens

Tail of two Kitties by Charles Catkins / great fiction for lazy evenings on laps



Puss in Boots – not to forget the most important classic

The secret of a good sleep by KIT.T Naps – not needed for us as we have purrrfected that already



Wishing you and all humans a super relaxing weekend

with many naps in between!

The Weekly Smile #40




A little smile for each day



I received this is a little stand up book  from a fellow blogger.

I met Ute (yes same name as me,)  from Ute42 blog 2 months ago

and she gave me this present as it fitted my blog.

How right she is!

I love it.

I like to share some smiles from it with you for Trent’s weekly smile post.


Even the smallest joy can magic a smile onto your heart.

Weekly Smile #39



In choir yesterday we started a new song:

Guess what….

One of my favourite musicals

Singing in the Rain


It is not that easy as we sing harmonies

but it is great fun.

The lyrics say:

‘Let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the place

Come on with the rain, I’ve a smile on my face…..’

and there it was:

my smile got bigger

smile 1


Sing along

and smile with me!

This is part of Trent’s weekly smile.

Join the smiles and click to view and add/link your smiles here.

It’s fun!




My special walk


I heard from Steffi that WordPress is doing this special walk wwwp5k .

A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:

  • Twelve laps around a track.

  • Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.

  • Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.

It was any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!

 I participated and here is my post

I made it a mindful walk on my own.

My impressions from my walk:

a beautiful church


a cat on the windowsill


lovely coloured flowery bushes


more sweet flowers

and now for the count:



That was a lovely mindful walk,

Why not try a mindful walk yourself,

being fully present,

notice the beauty around you,

enjoy every step you do,

… and you don’t even notice how far you go!



How to enjoy a puzzle every step of the way!


I have been sent a 1000 piece puzzle by Debra to enjoy and to review.

As I love puzzling, I was very happy.

It is a brilliant way to relax,

to practice patience and

look at pictures in real detail.

This time it was ” The Brighton Belle” by Ravensburger.

A Premium Puzzle with Soft Click Technology.



On opening the 1000 pieces were neatly packed in a bag. It included a leaflet showing the artists biography and additional picture for reference. As I can see from the included small catalogue that it is a new addition to the collection 2016.

The Drawing by Trevor Mitchell shows the 1st class service the Brighton Belle used to bring for 40 years. An excellent choice of the picture as it has many different colours and lines to be identified on each puzzle piece.

There is more information about “that the magic of fine rail dining in the 1930s, complete with attentive white jacketed Pullman stewards and those sumptuous surroundings” It will be recreated and the Brighton Belle will be in service again towards the end of 2016. If you like to read more please go to the Brighton Belle website. Rather interesting!

The 1000 pieces are great card quality which you can be sorted easily without the danger of breaking them or the fear of the actual picture coming off.




Through the many different objects and people on the picture one can sort really well into colours and also shapes depending how you as puzzler prefer it. I prefer sorting in shapes first then colours.



The great thing with a Ravensburger, once you find a piece and it fits – it really fits, it really ‘clicks ‘in.  It does have the soft click technology- not just a word- you can really feel it. You do not have to doubt if it is the right place as each piece is individually shaped. This is a big bonus and gives us puzzlers extra help especially for not such established puzzlers. The shapes are distinctive and sometimes you don’t even need to look at the picture so much. While doing piece by piece you feel and see the excellent quality.


See my progress….


My favourite moment is when I put the last piece in, I feel a sense of achievement and I can see the picture in full big glory.


I very much enjoyed doing this puzzle, it didn’t take long and even my children stopped by to put the odd piece in the right place. I can recommend this puzzle to all puzzlers out there and it would be a good start for someone who has never done 1000 pieces.
