My boyfriend is the scary cat lady, well, bloke. Totally obsessed with them and regularly attracting them to our home with food left out for whichever one of the neighbour’s cats he was feeding last. I love animals too, so it’s a good thing but I can’t help be aware that if he was female he would be in serious danger of being labelled a freak based on this feline fancying alone.
So when I came across this bizarre cross stitch cat portrait in Help The Aged I just had to buy it for him. What I like most about it is the way the cat is positioned and its head is tilted. Cute.
He came home with this delicious old typewriter the other day. He had proudly scooped it from under the nose of some old cadger who had spent too much time staring into the shop window, rubbing his beard and saying to his wife ” Oooh look at that typewriter Mavis, I might buy it…”.
