These two pics of SG were taken in the lounge last evening. It is not often he settles to such quiet play, so I just had to grab the camera. He looks so thin in the pics, but he seems to be very healthy - in spite of telling me "I dont eat vegetables"We had him for a few hours in the late afternoon, & he was so happy. He is usually such 'high maintenance' to care for, but he seemed to be particularly happy yesterday, pottering about with his blocks, making houses & garages.
Here he is on the floor, with GOM's foot close by, ( yes, it was attached to the leg, & not disembodied & just placed there for effect!) & Leo's tail, a floor cushion, & the dog's basket of toys. I heard him tell Leo, when he attempted to sneak a block, "Dont even think about it!"
His poor old nose has been 'loved' right off his face! No, Leo didnt do that, it was already missing! along with a chunk of his arm fur.
We had a great morning, went to a garage sale promising 'material, & sewing items'. Got some good bits & pieces for when the quilty muse arrives back. Now all I have to do is wait for COOOL to wash & iron them!
I also got another 'tired' & 'retired' Teddy for the Hug! He is a sheepskin old chap, & has a music box, which has ceased to work. I am sure with a bit of TLC & a new ribbon, he will look comfortable among the other refugees.
Later, we went out with a friend for about an hour, & I foolishly left new 'Old Ted' on the table. When we came home Leo had brought him downstairs. Thank goodness he didnt eat him!
Or maul him to death!
When my children were small, (& not so small, too) it was a habit of mine to make up stories about toys & 'things'. I can even remember some of them, & so can my adult 'kids'. I wish I had written some of them down, but some of them are still in my head.
It is fearsomely hot here today. There is a little breeze, which just about saves it from being one of those 40-something days.
It is 30 degrees C in the passage, even with the aircon going in the lounge end of the house!
