A lovely welcome

08 April 2014

“I know someone who will be very happy to see you again,” said Reggie, as we made our way home from the post office.

“Here we are,” she said, as we pulled into the driveway. “Look familiar, Flat Kathy?”

“Ohh, yes,” I replied. “Very familiar.”

We went inside to drop off the shopping, and then went into the back garden.

“Goodness!” I exclaimed. “What is happening here?!”

“We’re paving the courtyard, and replacing our old, cracked patio, and we’re having a wooden pergola put in over the patio,” explained Reggie.


“Miss Tuffy-Cat!”

“Hello, Flat Kathy, I heard that you were coming for another visit,” she said, rubbing her head against me affectionately. “It is lovely to see you again; you’re looking radiant as ever. I look forward to hearing all about your travels in the last few months. Come, let’s sit in the garden for a bit, and you can tell me all about it.”

    1. Yeah, I hear you. Mind you, we’ve had temperatures soaring into the high thirties these last few days, which is extremely unusual for autumn. It’s also brought out a buzz of mosquitoes, which have been plagueing us every single night. And the heat really saps all the energy from you. So, be warned, Sybil! 🙂


    1. The two of them get on like a house on fire, Bonnie. (Er… ‘fire’ probably shouldn’t be used in conjunction with Flat Kathy…)

      And Edward T Bear – as a ‘veteran’ traveller (he’s only had one trip overseas, so I don’t think the description is entirely applicable, but he’s feeling so chuffed with himself at surviving his Adventure in Lost Luggage Land, that I don’t want to burst his bubble) – has been hanging around with Flat Kathy, listening to her every word. It’s rather cute. I think the travel bug may have bitten him too. 😉
