WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of August 13. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
Sensation and excitement in our street ! I sat peacefully at my computer when I heard loud meows in the street. Quiet unusual because it sounded like a cry for help. I went on the street and met another lady who also had come out of a neighborhouse, whom I didn't know, but she presented herself as the mother of the young couple living across the street which was on holidays. We found a little ginger cat about 6 months old with the paw trapped in a far too large collar.
In my excitement I completely forgot to take a picture, and found this one on internet. It was so cute and looks very similar. I was so worried what to do with it in case I didn't find the owner.
The little cat was so happy to see us and purred and turned around our legs. I took the collar off and fortunately found an adress and a telephone n°. which I called immediately. A man answered in a forgeign languagage and it turned out that he and his family were in Poland on holidays and the cat had been left at home as apparently he and his wife were servants in a house were they also had a flat.
He was really very upset and worried about his little cat. I told him that I would bring it home, what Mr. G. and I did, but before I fed the little thing which was starving. The little cat's home was very far away, even amazing that it had done all this way to end up in our street.
When I rang at the door of a big mansion a young girl opened and I explained what happened. Mr. G. was waiting with little cat on his lap in the car. It hadn't said a word the whole way long as if it was used to drive in a car. In this very moment my mobile rang again and it was the polish man to ask news about the cat. I told him that I just was at the house door and gave the phone to the girl. She reassured him to take care of the cat. She then in bathrobe and barefoot went over the gravel to our car picked up little cat cuddled it and we were so relieved that this bad adventure had a happy end.
The afternoon I went for a visit to Ilona, I hadn't seen her since I returned from Oxord and we had quiet a lot to chat.
The whole weekend it rained and rained and there was even flooding at some places, impossible to put your nose outside. I just managed to go to the market between two showers and buy our Thai food, freshly made for supper.
The evening was dedicated to Midsomer Murders, and Dominique came over to watch with us and we strengthened ourselves with apples, grapes and brownies watching Inspector Barnaby to solve 6 murders this time !
