People with gardens or plants outside, help!!!

How do I stop the neighbours' cat from pooing in the flower beds? :'(

I've got those ultrasonic motion detection thingies (from the previous owner), but it's looks like it's not working anymore :-\

Buy a bigger cat?

I hate February-March so much. All the sheep are lambing, so I hardly have any time to read or write.  :'(

Poison?

Apparently, chocolate, alcohol, grapes, and xylitol are both toxic to both dogs and cats. I mean, just some extra knowledge...  8)

Oooof.

Just earlier I finished the climactic chapter of my latest trilogy. It's been three weeks since I started, and it's definitely one of the most challenging things I've ever written. I did a marathon writing session yesterday, then an ever bigger one today, purely out of a desire to finally finish this thing.

My brain feels worn out.

How to make your day a little better: have an ice cream at lunchtime ;D

I went out, needed to check the paint shop, and on the way back walked past an ice-cream shop and decided to have one: yes, it's cloudy and chilly and it started raining soon after, but those are the days that become better with an ice cream 8)

Yes, it certainly should.

Unrelated to that, I've thought of a little game we could play here on the forums. How do people feel about a thread in which we put up movie quotes and everyone tries to guess the movie? And I'm talking about quotes that are distinctive, without being "Use the Force" or something similar.

Happy #WorldBookDay  ;D I love that this is celebrated in the UK, and seeing the kids dressed up as characters from books. I never even knew about this until I moved here - in Portugal it's all about Carnival around this time of year, much prefer the book-related festivities  ;)
