So without further delay, they are:-
1. This little sprig of fir tree in the jam jar on the left was gathered on a family walk on Saturday morning. Poor Yoyo was really struggling to make it back home and it had started to snow again - we kept her spirits up by asking her to look for the 'Christmas tree' so Mummy could put it in a jam jar.
The plot worked, she kept walking (and stopped whining) and she is very proud of her little sprig.
2. The constant and ever changing display of hats and gloves drying on the radiator.
3. Rose the kitten plays with my toes this morning as they hang over the edge of the bed. She doesn't use her claws, just her soft paw pads. I take this as a sign of feline affection, although I am doubtful that is her intention.
Aaahhh, that's better....feeling calm.
