The Meddler

A couple of years ago I was grasping for a word to describe Ali’s Ali-ness;


verb, -dled, -dling.

to involve oneself in a matter without right or invitation; interfere officiously and unwantedly.


The Meddler was perfect and has stuck. Although sometimes I think of him as Macavity the Meddler Cat as he channels that naughty creature as well.

He has very busy fingers, he keeps them occupied by using his pokey-sticks which I scrapped and posted here.

However he has been spied with pokey sticks tucked under his arms so they don’t interfere too much with the meddling.

He just has to meddle.


I have just realised that I used the same Thickers as on the Pokey-Stick layout. Jewellry Box, I love them.

I wish I had coloured them red, i’ll have to go and do that now.

Journaling reads;

If a drawer needs opening, (his eyes widening was a sight to behold when he found the spice drawer).

If a cupboard needs clambering into, (although he cannot now fit into the one that he used to hide in).

If a box needs investigating… (sheesh, they are all up high, high now!)

…Call Alex, he is a professional meddler.

Even he will now say,

“Mum, I just need something to meddle”.

I need to add that to the layout now Confused smile This layout is not finished is it?

Thanks to Shimelle for her great challenge over at UKS ’& Now For Something Completely Different’

    1. Not in my experience Susi, Louis is not a meddler at all :)
