  We live in strange and difficult times – all over the world! Who would have thought that such a miniscule pointy thingy could wipe out social life and turn people into loo paper addicts? But there is hope – in the shape of our pets. I know the...

  Congratulations, Susette, Constanze and Sonia, you got it! Though you, Sonia, are only half right. But I will disregard you mentioning basil as you probably were only hungry. 😉 Isfrid is indeed a parsley fan as you can see for yourselves.     Die...

  Let’s rekindle an old tradition! This image may be from last month but rest assured, dear readers, you would not like to see images of today’s wet leaves and pouring rain while in November everything still was rather colourful. Now to the question....

Teil 850 – Wir sind wieder da!

We are back!! And what do you think? Have you checked out our new homepage yet? It now contains a slider with the most recent posts, introduces the team and features a quote of a famour (or not so famous) cat lover. A look at the team lineup will probably make you...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 12 – 8

Countdown to Christmas – Days 12 – 8 Sonia was right! Wanting to publish a blog every day was way too ambitious, particularly before Christmas. But in our review of 2018, July, August and September have become one overheated blurr in my mind anyway. Our...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 13 Welcome to the second part of June! What you see above is a polyresin cat my friend Kasia gave me for my birthday last year – and it is a scarecrow. Not that it would scare our resident crows Odin and Freya but I had the...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 14 We have reached the beginning of June. While I am still waiting for the perfect moment to catch Maxine, nature decides to interfere. On June 2nd the bump that turned out to be an abscess bursts open and Maxine seems relieved. She...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 15 We are still in May. It is still warm and humid. And apart from preparing Joschi’s meals and force-feeding him several times a day, I have so much work to do that I have not even found the time to take photos – and...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 16 Welcome to May 2018. As you know, all I managed to publish in May was the birthday blog for Marvi, Islay and Isfrid. Even though I had already collected the photos I was not able to congratulate Sander, Mrs. Peel and their...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 18 Welcome to April in our review of 2018! It was too warm for the time of year – again. The weeds were growing faster than the tulips and I broke my foot. Plus, we celebrated the birthdays of Mira and Marvi at the end of the...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 20 Today we take a first look at March and when you look at the blog, you don’t see much. The weather was nice and unseasonably warm. The cranes were already flying north and the bumble bees all collapsed into the crocuses...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 21 What else happened in February? Thankfully not much. We were all looking forward to spring and enjoying the garden but it began to transpire that my workload would increase this year. I was only able to publish 8 issues – an...
