The abomination of “Oldtimer”…

There is no denying that I have been battered and seasoned by life experiences to make me the strong and resilient FrogDiva that I am today. Call me stubborn, or call me impulsive, but the one thing you may not call me just yet is old. But can I be called an old-timer? I received

What a way to start the day! Celebrating Cherry’s journey from anxious rescue cat with PTSD to cover girl! I couldn’t be prouder of her and inspired by her determination to make up for the lost years. The announcement was made on June 8 but I just discovered the certificate today, which is just as

Elvis, Priscilla and Benny

Meet Elvis, a Muscovy Duck I mistook for a goose, and I apologised profusely to him, especially after meeting his partner. Elvis is a nickname I bestowed the good duck, so for consistency’s sake, I will refer to his partner as Priscilla. She definitely looked like the rocker duck’s partner, with the tamed down look

Lady Tiffy Visits: Chapter 2

Dear Blog Readers The Cat Police has been on my tail the whole day. Cherry won’t leave me alone and has parked her fuzzy butt in my room. Whenever I move, she wakes up and shadows me. This has ruined her sleep pattern though and as a result, this evening she is super groggy, so

Christmas Countdown Day 5: Open Home (or Lady Tiffy Visits Chapter 1)

My mother always insisted on setting an extra place at the Christmas table “just in case someone needs a home on Christmas”, and made sure to cook extra portions for whoever might drop by unannounced. I know of several other families who practice this and I carry on the tradition. This practice of never being
