|Beirut - handyman's dream|
The iRobot was delivered and was given a test run. It alarmed the cats so much I put it back in its docking station and will try it upstairs first.
Of course the iRobot is nothing compared to what is about to happen to the cats. Cate very nearly got a dog on Saturday – but it was snapped up before she could see it.
Cate says I am being obstructive because I ask questions such as:
Where does the dog sleep?
Where does the dog eat?
Will the dog eat the cats? - or
Will Sissi eat the dog?
What do we do with the dog when we go away?
These seem pretty logical to me but are answered – ‘we will work it out’. I think she means that I will work it out – and I am sure I will.
I am racking my brains as to how we can do it without making Monika totally deranged. I am planning a series of dog doors – with cat holes – so that the cats can get away from the dog and have their own space.
I also need to think about fencing outside, dog food, dishes, leads, dog minding, vets when Sissi scratches Rover on the nose and a cat psychiatrist for Monika.
Cate is now going to walk in Ecuador in July so I have another travel planning exercise.
I think Ecuador will in fact be better than Jordan so am not unpleased. Quito is said to be a fabulous city. I will have to be up to speed on my Spanish before we go before we go.
So instead of Jordan we are going to see Molly and Gaston and Biggles in Paris -then we are going down to Brittany for a few days.
United was not pleased that I changed the flights and punished me. I think it was an ‘aggravation fee’ although they did not call it that. I am surprised they did not send people out to give me a good thrashing.
