If I was a real puddytat I would not have a problem sleeping! It’s as simple as that. Cats can curl up and sleep anywhere, anytime, come rain or shine.
I have not been so lucky lately. I wake after even 2-3 hours of sleep and then cannot get back to sleep again.
Baby Emryn seems to have a similar problem and keeps her parents awake at night.
She thinks it’s funny:
She enjoys playing with her Oma, especially when I entertain her with her toy bush baby. I need to get a picture of that face when she anticipates being tickled by the furry toy.
Emryn is now well and truly into her soft solids (made by Mommy) and has had a taste of most foods.
Apart from the sleeplessness, me, myself and I are doing fine here at the Village.
My patch of garden is looking fine, but I need to put new herb plants in the box as the parsley has died and the other herbs are looking straggly.
After the 3 long power outages, due to problems at a sub-station in March, I checked the foods in the fridge and ended up tossing quite a bit of stuff. Such a waste and I don’t like wasting food.
In February YS decided I should get a land-line phone and a better Internet package (not Telkom, though). He applied for the phone line and we are still waiting.
Today a Telkom technician was at the Village and I way-laid him. It turns out that what YS and I thought was the reference number, wasn’t a reference number and the technician couldn’t do anything today.
So I will complete the application forms, where they ask me everything but my vital statistics and go to the Northgate mall and hand them in and get a proper reference number. Then I can phone that technician and get going with the land-line. What a mission!
There’s nothing worse for me as people who do not, from one meeting to the next, follow up on jobs that have been assigned to them.
On a regular basis, especially when occupants leave the Village, the keys to that cottage or flat need to be checked. Every dwelling must have a set of spare keys in Matron’s office to be used in case of emergency. This check has not been done in the 18 months I have been here and, as a matter of fact, my cottage didn’t have a set of spare keys when I arrived. I had a set made.
So yours truly has taken on the job as “key-checker”. I will make a start after Easter and Matron is happy.
Recently we “lost” one of my Buddies. The lady had not changed her day card in the window and after much banging on the doors and windows and noticing that her car was still in the parking bay, we set out to find her. Her spare keys had been incorrectly labelled and we could not gain access into her cottage. we could see into her lounge and bedroom and nothing was amiss there. Before we decided to try and gain access through the roof one of the maintenance guys managed to prise open the bathroom window and the occupant wasn’t in there either. Sigh of relief. No unexpected injury or death to cope with.
Hours later the lady pitched up. She had been out with a friend!!!!! She was well and truly rapped over the knuckles by the Village manager.
My Mynah birds are getting too fat and I now only feed them twice a day instead of on-demand. They are not happy.
Can you see them?

One named Peter, the other named Paul.
