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!

Up Up and away!

Up rather too early at 4.00 am tomorrow, and away at 4.30 to Alan's place for our taxi to Stansted - then Scotland for two glorious weeks on the TGO Challenge.

So I'll be wildcamping within the law for a change - which reminds me, my MP, Richard Spring, sent me a letter today. He has evidently acquainted himself with the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, and says that he recognises the value of our interests.

As always, this has been referred to Hilary Benn for comment.With any luck Hilary might just begin to get the message that there is a tide of opinion that is worthy of recognition.

If you haven't signed the petition , do so now, and follow it up with a letter to your MP - you'll find all you need to know, and draft letters here.

Well, I'm on holiday now, so I'll leave the running of the world to you lot for the next two weeks. Please look after it. Ta.

Good Lord!

You obviously left the world in the hands of the Lunatics while we were away.

Fuel protests on the horizon. Chris Tarrant still on the telly.
'Springwatch' in the Summer.
Earthquakes in China.
Burma still in chaos.

Lord E: Consider next year's entry carefully!

I know, I know. Still trying to sort out the chaos. I dunno. Turn your back for five minutes...

AND there's Miss W. Over the last fortnight she has prepared a List of Tasks (and the capitals are very, very important).

Still, I've got a quiet moment now, so ....pardon? ....just checking the email....yes dear....right away dear...

I'm shocked that there is a list of tasks to do from Ms W.
Didn't you say that whilst you were suffering in one of the worst conditions for a Challenge ever (ie no pubs before Braemar) that Ms W would be taking it easy pottering around the garden?

I'll stop digging that hole for you now ;)

Pottering around the garden!! As if.....you should see the state of the lower field.

I'm afraid Lord E will be at least a week with the scythe.

Looking at the date of your last posting one wonders! ! Are you still in Callater Lodge or some other den full of bottles?
