|Compton Durville, May 2010|
Anyoldhow, I've linked to a number of different folks' reflections on their retreat experiences and will add more as I find them. I hope it'll prove a handy resource. Do pop over there if you want.

I've been inspired by KirstenM's brilliant links to Ninja cat clips to show you a recentish pic of our resident feline with 'cattitude.' For blog purposes we'll call him 'Tigercat,' if his fur-flying all claws sharpened virtuoso performance at the vets just after we got him is anything to go by maybe 'Jekyll and Hyde cat' would be a more appropriate moniker. A year later and with vaccs due again, we braced ourselves for an encore and what would you know...he was good as gold. Twelve months co-existing with GP dog must have had a calming effect. Although I doubt he'll ever be a true lap cat, he's a worthy successor to the late great 'Gothcat,' 'Kung-Foo Viking' , and last, but definitely not least, our much-loved little 'Scaredy Cat.'
Of course, all this is just an excuse (thanks, Kirsten for paving the way) for linking to all things cat - two clips sent me recently by Ms and Mstr GP: if you're still struggling to understand the labyrinthine workings of the feline mind, here's a simple guide to How to speak cat. Then if that still fails to make any sense, you might find solace in the musings of good old Henri, philosopher and existentialist. Non, je ne regrette rien....

When I grow up I'm going to be a sunflower. Yes, really... Mr GP gave me three of these little fellows for my birthday last week. Good, aren't they? I've planted the first can in an attempt to convince myself as much as anybody else that if the sun still isn't appearing down our way, we can brighten up the place with our own variety. I say "convince myself; " my fits of the bleahs, ennui, acidie or whatever you want to call it continue. Whether it's post-Easter let down, (when our church does Holy Week, it really does it well!), lingering post - meno health niggles or whatever; my blog - if not my whole get up and go - seems to have got up and gorn.
Out there in the blogosphere, Retired Knitter has fallen over the edge of a 'blog cliff,' the much revered Chorister has 'retired,' her wonderful wibsite choir blog, and Steve Tilley...well...I might have completely misunderstood his last post, but he's currently in colloquy with a being called Big Blogger. I'm not alone it seems.
Mr GP, on the other hand, is on a roll, with his talk of pedalling and postive mindsets. Maybe I need to get on my bike.
