From Feral to Family pt1

Posted 22/5/2015

Today we welcomed into our family a new member, Aria. She is a small feral female tortoiseshell kitten. Born of a feral cat on the edge of a farm I got to hear about her from a friend of the person who had found her.  She was young enough to have a chance at a new domesticated life. As most domesticated born kittens easily find homes I decided to take the plunge as experience has taught me that each feral cat I had taken in previously had become a most loyal and devoted family member.

It has been a long time since I had taken a feral in but after the recent loss of one of my cats I decided to take the chance on this unknown kitten. at 3pm Wednesday afternoon I was told the kitten was weaned and had been successfully caught, I was to pick it up in the morning.

Loss Of A Loved One

Posted 2/5/2015

This is the Story of Nimbus.

Six months ago two new kittens joined my family. They had been abandoned in their home when the owners decided to move out, they were left behind, in a cold, empty house. I found out about them from a local rescue centre that had taken them in. As my two cats were Old, and Very Old I had decided now was the time to take on a pair of youngsters to bring on.

I have, for the last 30 years, always taken in rescue cats but usually, unlike in this case, I have been presented with a cat or cats that needed a desperate home. This time I wanted to choose, to look and find ones that suited me. I wanted to choose  a different colour than I had had before.

My Mobile has on OS Update!

Posted 11/4/2015

Mobile phones have become an integral part of modern day life for most of us. Some of us prefer a simple call and text basic phone, but for many others, we want our phone to do much more. For some of us our phone has become more than just another gadget, it is work, rest and play all in one. 

Most of us have a mobile phone and most of those are smartphones. These are, in essence, mini computers. Like computers, they get updates from either the manufacturer or service provider, depending on the handset.  Now how many take any notice if you get a notification that the phone has an update. I guess most will just press update and allow the handset to upgrade.

But, what happens when that upgrade goes wrong?

What do you do?

Are Footballers Worth Their Weight In Gold?

Posted 2/4/2015

I have never been a fan of Football. Why? Well look at the England Squad. Total let down every time. So, today it was reported that a Liverpool footballer had revealed in an interview that he had turned down £100,000 a week new contract. During this same interview he had also made it known he had received other attractive offers and that he would not look again at anything until later in the season. Today, it seems, he has felt it necessary to put out a statement that its not about the money! Really?

Ohh My Aching Back!

Posted 1/4/2015

I guess most people have felt the pain of a bad back at some point in their life. I have lived with it for 12 years. I pulled my back out while at work one day, rushing to complete an order, swinging 5ltr tins of paint out from a difficult to reach corner without a care in the world. I didn’t feel a thing at the time. Next morning, I did…

What Is A Name?

Posted 31/3/2015

Unusual names, they can be beautifully beneficial, but sometimes they can also hurt.

Everyone has a name, and even if that name is common, to the people who have that name it is still uniquely special to them. But what if your name has a quirk, has something about it that makes it difficult in some way? That is my situation.

Welcome to the mutterings of Michaela-Jane.

This site is about my outlook on life, what I see and feel, posting blogs about love, life, tech, the world, the universe and chocolate!

For years I have wanted to start this adventure, but life, work and other obstacles always seemed to appear in my way as I attempted to start venturing in this creative world. Now I have finally managed to step into this cyberspace of writing and I hope this will become an amazing voyage of wonderful discovery.
