Hello everyone,

Well Paddy, it seems like Archie is a bit of a troublemaker, getting you into trouble - and trouble is exactly what any CAT coming in here would get. Macduff taught me well in the art of chasing kitties and rabbits. Seriously, I am sure you and Archie will become the best of pals.

Ooh Heather, I can imagine just what your Mum said. I always used to get a row for digging holes in the grass. It took Mum a while to realise that Macduff would start digging, then ask me to finish off while he supervised. Well, did I laugh when Mum cottoned on. He got a real telling off.

We had a really good weekend and bank holiday Monday - it was really warm and sunny. Yesterday wasn't so nice, but the sun is out today although it is quite chilly in the breeze. I made the best of the sun lying out and hoping for a nice tan. Mum pottered about in the garden. We have planted some carnations and a hollyhock.

It is now official, our Mum is slightly mad. We have a fairy ornament in the garden and it lights up at night. I suppose it looks OK, but I can't get the two fairies to play with me. Her indoors reckons that fairies only come out to play at night.

Jojo and Tommy send tweets and kisses. Hope you are all well.

Kisses to everybody, especially to all the Mummies and Daddies - Eilidh XXXXXXX

Top of the morning everybody!

Now, I have to tell you about that cat, Archie. I think he's alright but I do have to keep an eye on him. I sit on the settee to watch him and he starts watching me and then he sends a challenge to me - so, what do I do? Go in on a full charge and he gives me a swift left hook and Mum says, "Behave, Paddy". Not me, Mum, it's Archie's fault.

Heather has been naughty - Mum planted up all her sweet peas and in the evening Heather went out to have a look. Some were in biodegradable pots and Heather thought they smelt tasty so she pulled them all out and laid them along the path. You should have seen Mum when she went out there! Also, she had planted a rose with some bonemeal mixed in the soil and good old Heather sniffed out that and Mum found her digging up the rose - I just sat and smirked.

We had a good walk at Peak Hill, Sidmouth although Heather can't walk as far as me but when we come back through the ponies (Mum thinks they are Exmoor ponies) one of them keeps following Heather, nuzzling her back and nudging her behind and Heather is not too keen on that.

Got to get back to catwatch.
