Pump it up !!

Awrite all o yez,

Today's Sunday, and the big man's taking me tae the gym ! I'v never been tae a gym before, but I want tae get ma cat muscles bigger, so I hav tae dae some extasises. Look at all the weights at this gym. I think the big man uses the really heavy ones tae make his muscles pure big haw haw.
Afore ah started, the big man telt me tae have a big stretch, tae get ma muscles warmed up. Yev got tae hae warm muscles afore ye extasise see. I got tae hang aff a big bar in the gym. Here's me gettin a good stretch..

Then after that, I wis ready tae lift the heavy weights. I've never done this before, so the big man helped me oot. Man, they were heavy !! I managed tae do a few with one arm, and teen a few more with the other, It was really, really difficult tae de. Nae wonder the big man makes so much daft noises when he does extasises !

Even the big man wis strugglin ! I think he didnae have enough porridge this mornin. Whit a daftie. I had tae help him wi his weights coz I'm a great big strong cat haw haw.

Woah, I wis kanckered after that ! I hid tae have a lie doon on the gym floor. Maybe I should hav not done some many weights for ma first time. Do you think that I did too much. Look..

I was so tired that the big man gave me a nice drink tae make me feel better. Thats why he drinks them you know, coz it gives him loads a energy ! I hope that you guys always eat up all your food and drink loads a milk n water for energy ! I'll have tae ask monkey if you guys are bein good !! Anyways, I wis well warm after all that, so I got a quick shower and then I got dried..

We came oot o the gym after that, and we went for a wee walk doon to the colourful bridge. And sumthin really cool happened. When a boat comes doon the river, they have tae move the bridge tae let the boat by. How brilliant is that ! Me and the big man got some pictures of the bridge and the boat. Can ye see the boat comin doon the river ?

Here it is !! It's goin under the bridge !

There were other boats in the water too, look at these ones. Can ye count how many mannies are on both boats ?
Once the boats were under the bridge, it hid tae come back doon again to let the people cross over the river. I wis well happy with that, coz I've never been over a bridge before ! I wanted tae go over the other side to see what it was like. Here's me on the bridge.
I could see the bigger bridge fae where I was. It's really is much bigger than the colourful one. Do you see how shiny the water is in the sun ? What a lovely sunny day down here :-)

Here's a picture of the colourful bridge from the other side. Do you think there are lots of people walking on it today ?

We walked back over the bridge, and found a great big market with lots of brilliant stuff for sale. Daddy bought some eggs for his lunch tomorrow, and he found some amazing dresses for Mummy !! Wait till ye see all the great colours. Can you guess which one Mummy would like to wear ?

That's all for now weans n mummy, speak tae yez another day.

Rescue me ( and take me in your arms, man )

Awrite weans and maw !!

Hows it hinging ? I'm on ma travels again folks, and I'm off with the big man tae get rescued from up high !! We had tae go in the car to a place far away, and I got tae go into the clasroom again when I got there. I luv learnin stuff, coz it means I'll be the most clever cat in the world haw haw.

I like goin tae new places, coz I meet nice new people who love to give me cuddles. I met the Big Man's pal, and his name's called Lee. He comes from the same place as the Beatles, Liverpool !! He talks kinda funny, but I think he likes me, coz I'm cuddly and orange. Everybody loves tae give me a cuddle.

Tae keep me safe, I got tae wear a hat like all off the big mannies. Check me oot. Can ye tell me whit colour o hat I've got on ?
Aifter that, we went ootside to see the big ladders. I got tae climb up one, and it wis really high. I hid tae stop for a rest halfway up, coz I wis so tired.
See climbin up ladders, it's really hard work. I couldnae even be bothered climbin doon, so the big man hid tae come and rescue me !

I got tae have a wee rest, them the big man said that I could climb up another ladder. I got some magic pictures of me havin a great time up high on the ladders

Look at this one ! Look how high the ladder is !! Wow, there's no way a wee cat like me could climb all the way up there. I think I'd be a wee bit scared. What do you guys think ? Could I go all the way up there like a real cat ?

Here's some pictures of the guys hanging from some ropes and ladders. Look how brave they all are !

Wait till ye see this. I took a picture of two silly mannies on the top of a wind turbine ! I couldnae believe how high up they were. Have you ever seen anybody up soo high before ? I wonder how they got up there. Dae ye think that a helicopter dropped them up there ?

Here's the big things that the big man hid tae climb up. What a big daftie !

We  had tae leave the place after all the climbing, so we went in the car to drive back to Newcastle. Look at the lovely bridge that we hid tae drive over tae get home..

It wis a long drive home, but I took a picture of a special kind of car on the road. Can you tell me whit colours are on it, and can you tell me whit the words say on the car ?
Here's a picture of another car. Can you see the people waving at me ? They must love ginger cats because they look very happy !

That's it for now folks. I'm off for a wee sleep and the big man's away to have his dinner. Be good, and I'll speak tae yez really soon.

A nice wee walk round Newcastle on Sunday

Hi Guys,

Me and the big man are goin for a great big walk today to see some cool stuff. But first, here's some more pictures of the bridge. Can you tell me whit colours the bridge is today ?

Me and the big man are goin for a great big walk the day. But we have tae go up a really steep hill first. I think we're goin tae look for the big bridge, but it's really high from the ground. So that means we'll hae tae climb up hunners o hills. Do you think I can manage to climb all the way to the big bridge ?

When we were walkin up the big hill, we saw sumthin well strange. Somebody had put a great big egg in the middle of the street !! Imagine that, an egg in the street ! I was well amazed ! The big man had tae take a picture o it tae show yez..

I got a photie too. Look !!

That was the best thing ever. I hid tae stop the Big Man tryin tae eat the egg in the street. Man, he eats hunners o eggs. What a pure Daftie !! Later oan, we walked through a nice place with hunners o flowers and heaps o trees. That was a good time for a break, so we had a wee rest and a drink o water. Here's me relaxin in the flowery place..
After that, we found a really old castle that was made hunners of years ago. It's even older than Grandad Nicol  haha. This was made so that the people of Newcastle were kept safe fae the baddies. The good soldiors lived in the castle on the top of the hill, and I think they had to climb the hill every day !! No way man !! That wid pure make me tired. You can see how old the castle is, because it's falling down..
We then walked on a bit, and there it wis. The big bridge !! It was well big when we were up close..
The big man took a picture of me on the bridge. Do you see how high up we are ?, but I wisnae scared coz the Big Man held my hand. We had to walk to the other side of the bridge to cross over, and it took ages because the bridge was soo busy with cars and lorries. There are a lot of cars in Newcastle..

Eventually, we got to the other side and we then found the great big glass greenhouse. It's massive !! Except, it's no a greenhoose, but it's a place where people go to see other people sing nice songs. And it's got a bit that children, like Bernadette and Jonathan, can paint in. Wow !! Do you remember the picture of the greenhouse from ma earlier blog ?

And here's one of the big bridge AND the big greenhoose..

Then we crossed back over another bridge, and there was a wee market on. There was a man there, and he had a pure brilliant van. It's no a van like Daddy's Merc, but it was a funny silver colour. Daddy said to the man that his van was awesome, and the man agreed. Whit do you think o the funny van ?

Daddy wishes that he had this instead o the Merc van coz it's brilliant !!
Thta's it for the day guys. It's very warm doon here in the Newcastle, so I'm off for a drink o cool milk, and the big man's gonnie hae a nice cold beer. Night night guys, and I'll speak tae yez later.
