Before I launch in to today's blog post proper, here's a picture of me frolicking in the snow in the garden this morning. I wanted to build my own snowman and so I started digging.
But then I decided it was more fun to taz around and do some zoomies. Also, because I run fast my paws are only in contact with the snow for milli-seconds so they don't get so cold as when I'm digging.
Look!! I was SOOOOO fast the Lady Of The House couldn't capture all of me on camera!!
Anyway, this morning wasn't all fun and games. I also had a bit of a disappointment.
Me and the L O T H put our coats on and got ready for our walk. It turned out that the L O T H wanted something out of the car....but when she unlocked the passenger side I thought we were going out in it and I got my feet on the seat and was wiggling my bum like crazy to get in. The L O T H was saying something but I wasn't taking any notice.
It turned out of course that when she'd got what she needed out of the glove compartment I had to get out because the car wasn't going anywhere.
I tried to convince her that we should still go out in the car because I LOOOOOVE it....but she said the roads were too risky at the moment. But I still stood there hopefully and it took a while to persuade me to reverse. Then, when she shut the car door, snow fell off the car roof and on to my head. Bah!
I didn't mind REALLY though because we had a nice walk after that. The sun came out and the sky was clear of clouds and there was a lovely blue tinge to all the snow. (Some bits also had a yellow tinge when I'd finished....if you know what I mean).
Anyway, the L O T H - Derbyshire born and bred - is full of daft sayings from years ago in her family....and she told me that I looked like "Clamp's Cat" when we didn't get inside the car.
You know how I feel about cats....so I wasn't best pleased.
Apparently, it's a saying they use in Derbyshire when someone thinks something nice is going to happen and then they are disappointed.
I'll never understand humans.
