All sanity has left the building

Every day I think “this job can’t get any worse”.  And then it does.  The good news though, is that I am through the ‘crying hysterically about it’ phase, and have moved on to the ‘slightly manically laughing about it’ phase, instead.

So, if anyone out there wants to save my sanity by offering a full time job crocheting and / or secret bakering, do let me know…  Because I have now sunk to new depths when it comes to obsessively making to distract myself (or new heights, I guess, if you happen to be Norman cat), and this weekend I actually baked….


…. cat cookies.  (To be clear, these are cookies for cats; not cookies made from small fur balls). I can’t even eat them myself.  Well I could, but tuna-oaty goodness doesn’t appeal to me in quite the way it seems to appeal to Norman.

I also made these as they seemed marginally more acceptable:


But I’ve just realised that in one blog post I have gone from ‘spinster with cat and crochet habit’ to ‘weird cat cookie making spinster with cat and crochet habit’.  I’m not sure there is any hope left – all sanity has left the building.  :o)

    All you need is a cute logo, some clever packaging and an Etsy account. If I still lived in London, I’d go into business with you!

      Ha ha! I’m trying to work out how to adapt the dragon pattern to it’s a bit smaller (and a lot faster) so your idea might not be so daft. Only from previous experience it doesn’t cover the mortgage, let alone the cost of cat cookies! I’m sure they could adapted for BTs you know….Ted could be chief taster til you get it just right :o)

    Oh love sounds a bit rough going at the mo! hang in there those cats (they are cats aren’t they) are absolutely gorgeous.
    Sometimes I really think you should ditch your day job, you have SUCH talent…maybe you would have to take a bit of a pay cut to start off with for a bit, but for the stress factor could be worth it!?
    I don’t see how you can fail to succeed, it would b a leap of faith but life is sometimes about those things…!
    I hope things get easier for you sweetheart loads of love always xxx

      It’s lovely to hear from you Sacha! I’d love to ditch the day job, but I know from experience that it’s not possible as the only breadwinner (Norman cat is not up for working full time…;x) ) I can dream about it though. And play the lottery :o) xxx
