Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running
No Hiding Place

Bess continues to make the most of the good weather, demanding that her meals be served outdoors and disappearing, much to Matchgirl's consternation, to a secret place we could only guess at – until today.
On a couple of occasions we'd searched The Rural Retreat's vast acres, and the surrounding area, but seen no sign of a relaxing moggy. Had she gone into nearby fields? Or – horror of horrors – risked one of her remaining lives to cross the road to find peace?
No. Our stay-at-home puss has established a den mere feet from the front door, beneath the twisted limbs of our huge willow tree. Shade, shelter and solitude – what more could a cat want?
Bess, comfortable in her new nest
I attempted snappery at her new favourite place but the awkward puss abandoned her pose and walked towards me every time I pointed the Pentax at her. Despite that, I managed a couple of cat still lifes. She's a star.
