" THE CAGE "
I had a disturbed nights sleep but in the end I think I did get enough sleep even though it was fragmented. ( I certainly haven't felt tired today ). The first time I got up was around 4.50am and I took a shot of the lovely sunrise from my front window - see Extra. I was up again around 7am, then around 11am and finally up for the day at 1pm.
After my late breakfast I did a few chores and then went for a walk. The recipe I was making for my tea called for green beans but I didn't have any and I was just going to do without but as I was passing the Co-op I decided to pop in and get some. There was one pack left but some of the beans were mouldy so I left it. As I was walking round the shop I spotted some reduced items - sea bass, salmon and prawns all at £1 per pack. I couldn't resist. They are all in my freezer now.
It was nice to get out for a walk and I met a couple of people who stopped for a chat. Complete strangers - but it was nice just to have a conversation with someone - anyone.( that wasn't a cat )
The weather was lovely - warm and sunny - so when I got home I sat outside in the cat enclosure. And I decided to blip it for the Wide Wednesday challenge "In My Backyard ". When I got Tino and Lily they were indoor cats and I decided to keep it that way. They weren't used to traffic and are an expensive breed so I didn't want them to be stolen. So they lived solely indoors for a while until I got a patio door fitted in the dining room and then the large cat enclosure was built. So they have the best of both worlds. They spend a lot of time outdoors in fine weather. They kept me company when I sat out this afternoon and I have added a collage of shots as an Extra,. They are also ( hidden ) in my main blip shot - Lily is under the steps at the end of the enclosure and Tino is under the white chair. Thanks to RockArea for hosting the challenge.

After sitting out for a while enjoying the sunshine I had to tear myself away to come indoors and make my tea. It was a new recipe and took longer than I expected. I was eating it at 7pm.
My Asda delivery arrived at 7.30pm. I did have a Tesco delivery last Saturday and ordinarily wouldn't have chosen to have two slots so close together. But I picked my slots over 3 weeks ago when I was finding it difficult to get any slot at all so to get two was a bonus and I didn't want to pass up either of them.
