Lucy-Lou is missing

At 8:30 this morning, I received a call from our home phone. My first thought was, I hope this is not the Tatapilla as he will be late for school. Yet, it was him.

Mum, did you see Lucy this morning?

Yes, she did her usual tricks.  Knocked/scratched on the door when I was moving around in the bedroom and then greeted me when I opened the door.  Ran past me to the kitchen where she plopped to be scratched. Did the same thing when I was watching the news and drinking coffee.

We can't find her.

She can't be outside unless your Dad didn't see her zoom past him on his way out.

Please pass me on to Dad.

(Same conversation as above. You know, I should have recorded myself.  Lol)

In the background, we found her.

Where was she?

In the office, behind a basket.


This happened within 3 minutes.  Whew, hope he wasn't late for school.

By the way, Lucy is our overly affectionate cat and it is unusual for her to hide.  She always sleeps on the bed or on the dining chair tucked under the dining table.

Brave Little Boy

We have friends over last weekend. The Tatapilla has two playmates all morning. They were very busy making paper aeroplanes. At first, they were just playing inside the house, in the lounge, dining and in the hall way. There’s enough room for the planes to soar. The adults are all outside yarning about. Towards the middle of the day, we drifted to the driveway as our friend was loading her car with stuff. And so the boys decided to play outside as well. We kept on reminding them not to be too close to the road. We are in a bit of a busy road as it is feeding off main roads on both ends. Things settled down a bit and then I was shown a big scratch on the Tatapilla’s leg. Apparently, he was chasing his paper aeroplane, got to the brick block and slipped. Imagine how painful it was! I have to play nurse. I have to say, despite how quesy I am with blood and gore but when it comes to my family, I seem to be not afflicted with it.

The Tatapilla was so brave. I applied a bit of Betadine and bandaged it. He shed a few tears but that was it. You think he deserve a musiciansfriend.com guitar picks? Or maybe the whole shebang? Something to consider for his upcoming birthday.
