Firstly I feel I should apologise for my last blog, which I think we can all agree was both depressing and self indulgent. I am afraid my hand moves swiftly across the keys in bleak times, yet when life is good I struggle to be creative. After weeks of cat pee and poo, life is calming down in Towcester. We moved just over a month ago with the help of my big sister, her van and 2 very willing and kind chums. I am already in love with this quaint little town I am glad to be able to call home. I haven’t done too much research into it yet due to lack of time, but it is a Roman town with its own Museum and many beautiful walks around countryside which seems to surround it on all sides! and of course it possesses a rather old and I’m convinced haunted church. I dare say it is only a matter of time before I drag my ghost hunting counterparts around the graveyard…before that though we have Edinburgh to conquer in the name of woooooooooo! only they will know what I mean by that!
Our days begin early now as we head off for the A5 around 7.45am, with son no2 asking if we will make it to school on time and son no1 tormenting him with ‘wow Jem look at that line of traffic! you will never make it! you will be late for sure!’ and then Jem disintegrating into hyperventilation. To be late for school would be too much for him to bear unlike his older brother who would have skipped school altogether given half the chance!
I am just quietly grateful I no longer return to cat turds in the bath, on the door mat, on the stairs or my personal favourite under a bag of clothes which I picked up and smeared all over my shoes, the rug and the arm chair before I realised they had used some sort of cat faeces superglue to stick the offending turd to the bag! I then picked up the cat crap covered rug to wash it and sprayed myself with feline urine, The said cats just looked at me with ‘if a jobs worth doing’ look on their fury faces. Unbelievably they are still alive! the many threats of their untimely and cruel (at my hands) demise helped me get the hatred and resentment I felt towards them out of my system.
Well I think that is probably enough about Towcester life for now, suffice to say I will be back and a lot sooner this time I hope. I shall try and return with a bit of a book review as I have nearly finished with a little number that I cant decide how I feel about. Always nice to end on a little intrigue I think…
