What's New Pussy Cat?

Yesterday the boy and I visited our favourite pancake restaurant again. It was very cold and we went during the late afternoon as the sun was setting, our favourite time of day. This time I had strawberries and cream pancakes. They were divine!

I didn't get to take a picture of my outfit. I wish you could have seen it. It consisted of this black shift dress with white collar that I am wearing, my vintage white purse and vintage 1960's white shoes with bows on them. I wanted to wear my white gloves but I am still trying to figure out how to get rid of the purple blotches that are staining them.

Any one have any ideas?

Also, there is a new member of our little family in our little unit.

For some nights now a stray kitten has been coming to our back door. She climbed up our window in the middle of the night. And at first I thought that she was a criminal trying to break in! But after the boy got up and went to investigate he found that it was a tiny little, oddly coloured kitten; her coat being a mix of ginger, red and what almost looks like purple. She has been visiting us for hours on end each night, taking naps on our coach, kneading her claws on our bed and getting stuck in between the blinds as a result of her kittenly curiosity. We have decided to call her Ruby, as when we said this name whilst browsing through many she peeped her head around the corner and looked at us with responding eyes.

We hope that she decides to stay with us!


  1. For stains I always put some instant kind of bleach and leave in the sun (if white). I think depending on the material you can try it out!
    I hope the kitten stays with you! There's nothing better than sharing your home with a cat. I can't wait until I find a landlord king enough to let me have one! But first I shall find a home haha xxx

  2. You look gorgeous, just like a 1960s actress! I agree with Ana, try bleach then dry them in the sunshine and keep wetting them so the sun bleaches the colour as they dry.
    How exciting about the kitten, a home's always better with a cat! x

  3. Thank you both very much! I thought of bleaching them but was unsure and too frightened to do so. But I feel a lot better about it now. I shall certainly try this! xx
