Blue skies and the love of a cat!
Today, 21st February 2014, there is a rare view from my office window. There is a beautiful blue sky.
For so long now the sky has been grey or even black so to see blue – well, that cheers one up for starters. OK, so the blue is peppered with clouds, some white, some white tinged with grey, an omen perhaps of the rain that is forecast later. But nevertheless, seeing another colour other than the dismal dark shades for the past three months just brings hope that perhaps we’re emerging from the wettest winter in 250 years and that perhaps spring is on the way.
It’s still pretty breezy out there judging by the movement on the trees in neighbouring gardens but at least Casey is moving from the sofa now to the back door where he sits and waits until I happen to come downstairs (from the office) to let him out into the garden. There IS a perfectly good catflap at his disposal but cats train their staff well and he knows that if he waits long enough, sooner or later I’ll come downstairs and open the door for him. I think he even engages in those Jedi mind games so that I suddenly get the urge to pop downstairs!
