Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Pond life and TV Gardeners

After an afternoon wading in freezing water putting plants in the new 'wildlife pond' ("It'll toughen you up for May" says Miss Whiplash, project supervisor) I was dismayed and apprehensive when she suggested that I might like to watch UKTV Gardens. What further onerous gardening project was I being softened up for?

But no! She meant it as a treat!

Extraordinarily (for I can see no connection with gardening) UKTV Gardens is showing Cameron McNeish's "Wilderness Walks" series.

Tonight at 7.30pm - Letterewe

The rest of the series is on at odd times (Tues 15th has Knoydart at 7.30am and 2.30pm, Weds 16th has The Cairngorms at 2.30pm). Best thing is to log on to UKTV Gardens listing for more info.

I wonder what else is hidden away in the listings for the specialist channels?

Ah - Just read this at 8:30pm on Thursday.

Can you get Miss Whiplash to give us 'better heads' up next time?

Plenty more to come, Al - and there are repeats. I took a late lunch break today to catch 'Letterewe' which featured Cameron kicking over a cairn!
