I am sitting peacefully reading in my favourite spot on one side of our 2 seater sofa. As our cat stroles around the edge of the sofa that peace is no more! What I see in that one expression as Cic looks up at me is enough to disturb anyone's peaceful reading. This particular expression consists of a number of issues all rolled into one. Namely ''Hmmm SHE is sitting there'', utter disgust, how am I going to get round this one, my plans for the evening have been thwarted..........and I am sure many more.
That is all quite easy to ignore, but the problem starts when I want to get up to nibble at something, drink, have a pee - whatever. This I reluctantly do and, of course, in a flash, before I even have time to look back, Cic is up there in my place already curled up pretending nothing has happened. So I do what I got up to do and then head back to commence battle with the cat to get my place back. I am totally ignored - naturally. Curled up, eyes closed, ears slightly back and you know exactly what is going on in that little hairy brain of his. I 'pretend' to sit down on him.............no reaction.........I sit with a little more pressure..............no reaction............more pressure...........his claws are now digging into the throw on the sofa................well then I will have to squash the cat! That does the trick and I get my place back, but only to have to suffer the rest of the evening with two furious eyes glaring at me from a ''2nd place'' position in some other part of the room. Quite discomforting but it's a cat's life!

GOZO - a very special place
Pic: Bunty Cachia
Once again Malta and it's islands have made the news. This time they share first place with Zimbabwe (!) as having the best climate on earth. To be totally honest I am quite sure there just HAVE to be more places in the world that have an equally good climate, if not better, than we have, but then I suppose it boils down to what you consider is a perfect climate. Not everybody's views of the perfect climate is the same. That is the critical side of me saying that, BUT it is terrific to be featured as having the best climate in International Living magazine.

Today was the day to start getting back to some sort of normality after the loss of my lovely dad. The wind was blowing ESE so thought what better way to clear my head and gather my thoughts than on the water. I had a brilliant windsurf, no radical conditions as such but, apart from a few kites, I was the only windsurfer out there - well powered up on my Synchro 86 and 5m sail - heaven on earth!
Now I feel ready to conquer the world (well not quite!).

Unfortunately I lost my dad just over a week ago. He lived to the ripe old age of 84 and was a great dad.
Above was taken last Christmas up in Gozo where we had a lovely big family Christmas - a Christmas which will be treasured and full of wonderful memories.
This is something an old friend of mine living in Texas sent me:
''You live on earth only for a few short years
which you call an incarnation,
and then you leave your body as an outworn dress
and go for refreshment to your true home in the spirit.''
