. Going it alone . . After 6 months of furniture free living the sofas have finally been selected and ordered. . . Why so long ?... It is a very different living space for us and so we wanted to take our time and get used to our new home.... . . We also selected the wrong designers, who have come up with very little except an unhealthy dose of delay. When you find yourself pushing and challenging your designers, they are clearly not the ones for the job. . . This must be the design equivalent of missing an open goal. We provided them a huge open plan canvas, with a mixture of industrial and modern, they should have been all over the project like a rash. In 4 months they have shown us a couple of colour swatches, a ridiculously over priced console table and sent us down to London for a meeting that never happened (the person we were sent to meet never turned up). We have ordered one chair through them, for the entrance hall, which we selected ourselves as we looked through some catalogs. . They are so in touch with us they don’t even know that we have gone solo... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #iphonexsmax #Iphone #SquirrelWorks #AmazingSpaces #goingsolo #JQ #opengoal #designers

. “Buddy can’t you spare some food, I haven’t eaten for ages....at least 30 seconds” . . Since begging clearly doesn’t work, Digby is concentrating on working out how to defeat the high tech security system that protects Sterling and Cooper’s food source... His latest cunning plan is mind control, if he can only get the boys to stand close enough to their bowls that they trigger them to open, while leaving just enough room for him to get to the food, the heist of the century is game on. Unfortunately our little scruff muppet has yet to learn that controlling cats is about as easy as turning lead into gold ... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #Iprhone #Iphone7plus #SquirrelWorks #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #Cooper #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #nikon_owners #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #siamesecornera #catgotyourtongue #Digby #JQ #scruffmuppet #mindcontrol l

. Cinematic Roulette . . Although Cooper, Sterling and Digby couldn’t play (they had to make do with a game called “he’s behind you”) I tried an exciting new game tonight. You pay half price at the Odeon to see a soon to be released film, only you don’t know what the film is until the film starts. . My first experience was with the film “A simple favour” - The excitement was clearly too much for one couple who I swear left the auditorium before the film title came up. I’m pretty sure Cinematic Roulette is not lethal, although I guess if it is a really dull film someone might get bored to death.... so perhaps they were just being cautious... . The film was OK, the story is about a woman who goes missing, her best friend (Who has only just met her, is there such a phenomenon as ‘Bestie at first sight’? cause if there isn’t, that is a huge plot hole right there) who happens to be a single mum and know it all vlogger. She was so intensely annoying I wish she had been the one to have gone missing, preferably before the film had stated. Not unlike like the intrepid couple you last saw exiting stage left.... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #Iprhone #Iphone7plus #SquirrelWorks #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #Cooper #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #nikon_owners #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #cinematicRoulett

. Dish of the day . Cooper perusing the new menu at the penthouse. He is particularly interested in the dish - “Gull on the wing”. I have told him it is not wise to order a meal that is as big as him and possibly looking for Siamese Takeout... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #iphone7plus #IPhone #SquirrelWorks #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #Cooper #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #nikon_owners #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #siamesecornera #dishOfTheday

. Current state - nervous . . We have just seen the plans that have been submitted by developers (joint venture between Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capita) who are looking to build in front of the Squirrel Works. They want to replace a derelict two story building with a series of five story buildings.. potentially destroying the view, the light and privacy of a wonderful grade 2 listed building. . . We moved to the Jewellery Quarter because it is different and special. Everything I’ve read about the planning committee for the Jewellery Quarter says they want to keep the area special. It will be interesting to see how they react to these plans ... . . Don’t get me wrong I’m all for regeneration and progress but surely it shouldn’t mean turning an area of special interest into just another area of high featureless blocks... . . I suspect this is going to be the start of a long fight to stop this wonderful old building from being swamped... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #nikonD4 #Nikon #SquirrelWorks livproperty #AmazingSpaces architectsjournal #liv #sjolanderdacruz #JQ #planing #JQPlanning galliardhomes apsleyhousecapital jq_bid thejqbrum thejewelleryquarter jewelleryquarterbirmingham jqbirmingham

Squirrel works in Birmingham looking great! We used Colorcoat urban to vertically clad the exterior of this penthouse apartment. Also we used the same material for the flat roof parapet capping’s.

. Ever wondered where all the Opal fruits went... . Cooper helping himself to the inexplicably juicy fruit chews. I still haven’t got used to the rebrand to Starburst. It was only 20 years ago so I’m sure I will get there one-day.... On a similar note of disapproval when the hell did the yellow (Lemon) ones get subsumed by the green (Lime) becoming Lemon and Lime flavour ... combining my favourite flavour with the dodgy green one has done nothing but make a slightly less dodgy green one, not even managing to take it from last place in the packet... . For the record other rebrands I’m struggling to come to terms with... . Marathon to Snicker(it used to be the snack for the long run ... ) . Jif to cif ( having something cleaned in a ciffy just sounds wrong) . . Datsun to Nissan (never owned either or even wish to, so maybe it’s change for changes sake I object to...) . Constantinople to Istanbul (on a brighter note it made for the only half decent song by They Might Be Giants) . . Brad’s Drink to Pepsi Cola (Ok a bit before my time but you have to feel for Brad, one day he has a drink with his name on it only to have it taken away and given to one of Whams backing singers. I wonder if they ever toyed around with calling it Shirley Cola...) . . New Amsterdam to New York .(It might have stopped old blue eyes in his tracks since New Amsterdam, New Amsterdam is a bit of s mouthful to croon ...) . . Any name changes you have difficulty with? . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #iphone7plus #IPhone #SquirrelWorks #animalpolis #perfocal #princely_shotz #cuteness #nikon_owners #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #Cooper #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #nikon_owners #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #siamesecorner #opalfruits #starburts #newyork #datsun

. Curiosity confused the cat ... . Sterling is feeling a bit like me, confused... . . I finally managed to get my phone data back but only from a backup from 3 months ago... So there is a few months of recent data missing, OK I can live with that... Now for the spooky part, despite being a backup from months ago, data is showing up that was only added last week.... It feels like being in an episode of the X-files, quick call Mulder and Scully to investigate... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #iphone7plus #IPhone #SquirrelWorks #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #Cooper #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #nikon_owners #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #siamesecornera #moulderandscully #xfiles

. Kitties can be awfully judgemental. . Sterling‘s reaction to my latest attempt at humour .... Remember before you judge me as harshly as Sterling, this was very verbal humour and needs to be said out loud, preferably to a very drunk audience just sozzled enough to find everything funny but not to the point of almost unconsciousness (feel free to have a few drinks before proceeding...) . We ran into our friend An-kit, in St Paul’s square, walking Digby’s friend Astrid (a rescue beagle). An-kit was talking to a woman and her dog. . An-kit “Hi guys this is so and so and her dog, what’s his name*. I’ve only just met them, they have just arrived in Birmingham, from Genoa” . . My response - “No we have not met them before either... “ ** . I think Mrs B may have kicked me, while Digby gave a look of despair that basically indicated only a Digby snack would earn any form of forgiveness from him... . . * I can’t be expected to remember all of the details, feel free to use your imagination and fill in the blanks..... . . . . ** oh, come on, give me a break, how many times do you get the chance of an open goal like that. I’m pretty sure that is the first time I’ve ever been introduced to someone from a seaport on the north west coast of Italy .... . P.S. I have given An-Kit the dash, at no extra cost. Just feel it adds a level of suaveness that helps people who don’t know him appreciate his charm . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #iphone7plus #IPhone #SquirrelWorks #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #siamesecornera ankit__d #genoa astridthebeagle itmaybemia

Great shot of the Townhouse stair shaft at Squirrel Works. The original shaft was in filled in the 60’s and full of pigeons before we brought it back to life. The flush roof light brings daylight down into the house and gives the space a contemporary edge. #squirrelworks #loftstyle #lofthouse #regeneration #paintedbrick #industrialchic #jewelleryquarter #listedbuilding #retrofit #architecture #archtecturephotography #sjolanderdacruz #jq #brum #livproperty #livprojekt #maguirejackson Photography will_pickering_

. Rules of attraction . If you ever misplace your indoor cats a good way of drawing them out is to put down a new soft surface. For best results use a material that attracts cat hair, like iron to a magnet..... Rule of thumb, the more expensive the material the greater its power to attract your pet.... The more you want your material to be cat free, the more they will be drawn to it... . . For the record, Sterling and Cooper want it known that they also respond to cat treats .... . . #jewelleryquarterbirmingham #birmingham #jewelleryquarter #SquirrelWorks #JQ #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #kittiess #Sterling #Cooper #instacats #catsofinstagram #catsofbishopsstortford #cats #instagram #bestcats_oftheworld #meowsandwoofs #princely_shotz #WeAreSiamese #SciameseTwins #siamese_feature #siamesecorner #iphone7plus #iphone #RulesOfAttraction
