I'm very surprised.

Reuben is two today

Reuben has just had a tin of Thrive chicken to celebrate his second birthday. It's been too hot to plan a proper celebration.

My ugly duckling kitten has turned into a handsome swan of a cat.

Reuben follows a different drummer than my other boys and is often found alone in the kitchen, He gets on with them all, apart from the odd spat with Harry and was wonderful when Filipos arrived. He is exceptionally smart.

I doubt we will ever be very close but my life would be much poorer without him and I'd really miss him if he weren't around. He may not be cuddly, but he is a real character.

Best photos of the year so far

You may have seen many of these before, but I collected my favourite photos the year so far into an album for my own use and thought I'd share for anyone interested.

An Award for Reuben and Thomas Leo

I entered a show "Elmo Staffy x Chihuahua - Online Pet Show" though I usually only support cat and human charities. If you entered, you got a free entry for the "Aquaman " class so I sent the only water related photo I could find with zero expectations as I expected lots of dogs frolicking in the waves to take part.

Well my boys won out of 124 entries! I can't believe it. It was about the only time they looked at the pool too!

Treasure hunt

Filipos and I took part in an online Treasure hunt where you had to post a photo of your pet with an object, say a shoe or a phone. i missed the round with the spoon and kept forgetting to look if another round was posted and was too slow, so we didn't make the top 10. We did have fun,though.

Reuben's Writing Challenge

I'm not seeing much of Reuben at present save when we go out. He says it is too hot for writing but has agreed to issue a challenge as many of you are celebrating this week.

There are 2 sets of prompts, choose either or both and write a story of any length, original or fandom and either post it on LJ or your favourite archive with the banner and a link to this post.

Feel free to share. Above all, have fun.

July Teitho Contest

Teitho: July & August "five ingredients" challenge
Posted by: mirach_ravaia
For the months of July and August, we once again have a delicious recipe for you to prepare. The ingredients are all listed below, but how you mix-n-mash them is completely up to you! As all great cooks make recipes their own by adding little touches and intriguing twists, don’t forget to spice the result with your favourite flavours. This month, let's see what you can bake for our hungry Middle-Earth and Arda appetites! The five ingredients are:

humorous friendship moment spilled blood stars misplaced book flying creature Each item on the list must appear in your story at least once, either physically or in dialogue. You don't have to use the exact same wording - for example, your story can contain a joke between old friends, an unfortunate slip of a hunting knife, a stitched star pattern on a velvet cloak, a cook hunting for her bound precious recipes, and a Great Eagle bearing a wounded warrior back to Gondolin. We've tried to make the list specific enough to be challenging, but not too restrictive as to choke your imagination. (Hope it works!)


There are many ways to go about this challenge, but if you need a hand in lighting your muse, here's a hint. You'll notice that the items on the list have qualifiers; something is happening or has happened to them. What was it? How did it come to pass? For example, who misplaced the book and how did it go missing? Where would friends come together and share a jest? What type of stars are seen in Middle-Earth and who is seeing them? How does seeing a creature fly overhead affect our favorite characters? Remember, it needn’t necessarily be an evil like a Nazgul! Ask yourself these questions, and you'll have an interesting story bubbling in no time....


As always your story can include any character in Tolkien’s Legendarium—Elf, Man, Hobbit, Dwarf or Ent. The deadline for this challenge is August 31st.


Send your entries to teitho.contest@gmail.com mailto:teitho.contest@gmail.com. The contest is anonymous and the entry can't be posted publicaly until the results of the challenge are announced. Please mind our rules http://teitho.waking-vision.com/modules.php?name=Intern&file=rules when submitting your entries for the contest.


Happy writing and drawing!
Your Teitho-moderators,
Mirach https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1740140/, Carawyn https://www.fanfiction.net/u/8843812/CarawynO, Karri https://www.fanfiction.net/u/40500/Karri, Sian22 https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5618291/sian22 and Lotrfan https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7605393/Lotrfn
