22nd April

Hello my name is Mab and I'm a Queen. I am also a 7 month old black and white kitten, but I'm speshal so there.

My person is busy this morning so I'm going to write the diary. 

Today I playded in the garden while my person had her morning cup of tea on the patio. I had a bit of it, I like tea. 
I caughted two flies and an ant and I shooded off a huge bee.... as big as a.... as a .... bee it was!
My person said I have to be careful cos I could get stungded, but bah what does she know?

I had a look in the pond to make sure all the goldy-coloured water mice (them fishy things) were there. I careful of the wet splashy water though cos I was pushed in last week and it was all horrid
I got cold and wet and I nearly drownded!

[note from Helen: no she didn't, her back half slipped in when she missed her footing when jumping across it. ]


I did too! and my person laughed which weren't nice were it? 'Specially as I'm a Queen!

I am now going to play in the garden again 'cos its a lovely sunny sunny day. Then I 'spect I'll snooze in the basket on my person's desk, then have my lunch, then another nap in the shade under the hazel tree where I can keep one eye on my other person's pigeons (he says they are racing pigeons but they don't seem to race about the garden much, they just strut & coo and peck at fings) and then I might play in the garden again before dinner time and then I will play with my persons because I need to keep them amused and then it will be bed time.

I'm so busy being a Queen!

love, meows & purrs
Mab (Queen)

It's a lovely, lovely day!

Wednesday

20th April

still been very negligent of my diary - just not had the time. :-(

The weather is glorious - blue, blue sky, this time of the morning (approaching 11) it's nicely pleasant outside. I enjoyed breakfast on the patio - toast (with honey) and coffee, and to be honest I could easily sit there all day.
 Sigh. Too much work to do.

Mind you, I left the washing out on the line overnight - daughter's jeans & stuff - the jeans were very wet when I hung them out because I don't think the spinner is spinning, but the waistband, pockets etc were still damp this morning. I guess the temperature was cold overnight?
Which is what you would expect in April.

We had to water the garden last night, some things, especially in the pots,  were drooping. We'll be planting potatoes this weekend & must get some more lettuce seeds in the greenhouse. The runner beans are already planted out. Mab the kitten has dug up all the peas though!

The blossom on our sapling apple and pear trees is gorgeous and forget-me-nots are all over the show. They are supposed to be blue but one little clump is pink. I'll make sure I scatter those seeds carefully.

I found a speedwell in the garden yesterday as well.
