These shaggy ink caps are growing in one of my horses’ fields this week. My Dad used to make shaggy ink caps on toast for our tea 🙂
I don’t want my WordPress site to become littered with photos of myself, but I couldn’t resist posting this.
I was invited to a fancy dress party recently with a theme of TV or Film characters. I don’t have a telly so was stuck for ideas until I remembered a brief conversation in the canteen at work a few years ago. We were discussing “which Disney character would you be?” I didn’t know, but someone overheard the conversation and, without hesitation, said that I’d be Cruella de Vil. Last weekend it came true!
This is an oldish photo of a lovely little chap called Buttons. When he was 4 years old he became ill and an Xray revealed a large abdominal tumour that could not be removed.
He was prescribed steroid tablets (for the rest of his life) and was given about 6 weeks to live.
This photo was taken 6 YEARS later and Buttons was still going strong. I split up with my boyfriend and, during the split, Buttons started to go downhill. I couldn’t take him with me as I was moving into short-term rented accommodation; also I wanted my cats to stay in their home (my boyfriend and I had a fairly good sized farmhouse with outbuildings and land which the cats loved).
I left the house and never saw Buttons or my other 5 cats again. My ex wouldn’t allow contact of any kind, so I couldn’t even ask how the cats were.
I didn’t really care about losing my home, but the pain of losing my cats never leaves me 😦
My new phone has a setting called ‘Beauty face’. I guess most people already have this type of thing on their phones, but I’m always lagging behind with technology so it’s new to me!
I don’t look much different to normal – just a bit blurry in the face.
Unfortunately, ‘Beauty face’ doesn’t add a smile and I look as sour and threatening as I usually do in photos!
I made a big effort to smile, which has given me a ‘sarcastic face’!
I’m looking for the ‘pimp your horse’s pic’ setting but can’t find it!
