Cats and kids.etc.
Sith cat and grandchildren.
Sith is an old man.
Our last family visitors had my grandson who is nearly two. He loves Sith and Sith was so patient with him. "CAT! CAT!"
Once grandson was shown how to stroke his head (and ignore the back end. ) All was good. Sith purred. And carried on with his routine.
The grandson visiting for the last few days has a total meltdown when he sees a cat. Screams to set your teeth on edge. Sith coped admirably. He very calmly left the building.
Family have left now. Just after lunch. Sith returned to our bed and has been zonked for hours. Then this evening back on the DP's knee and all is back to normal. That cat is amazing. My ears are still ringing.
So the roadworks were supposed to start yesterday. The road has remained open . Workmen appeared this morning and proceeded to give our neighbour a kerb, digging a trench round his verge. They thought the signs on the road were where a sign should go saying Men Working. (MW.) Still confused. But we could take the shortest route to the Prom.
Still hot but no Haar.
And no wind. So a gentle amble was lovely.
In to the Shedudio. Open doors, and both opening windows. The view through the door - I love Alliums. The clematis over the arch in the background. Just lovely. Deafening noise from all the birds now with fledglings.
Later the sunset.
It is just after 10 p.m. now and we are shrouded in mist! Haar will be back tomorrow then.....
