Well sort of I suppose.................

Firstly I'd ordered a cake from Asda for Mandi and Dogan's wedding anniversary to combine with Christmas, and a litre bottle of Bailey's [only £10!!] and I'd asked for a time zone for delivery from between 1pm and 3pm and on the dot of 1pm the door bell chimed. Couldn't believe it - thrilled with it. The cake looks gorgeous, must take a pic of it.

Then I remembered that some of my pot lids had lost their knobs!!!!! As they are glass lids, they are heavy and so it's quite a skill to take them off boiling vegetables!!


This is what I mean............ well all I had left was the glass lid with a tiny hole at the top where the knob had fallen off..............

So I rummaged through some drawers in the porch and found some cupboard door knobs I'd bought years and years ago. With some small washers, I screwed the new knobs onto the lids.......


They look okay don't they? Okay they're pink, but who cares?

Then I noticed that Boo had firmly ensonced hereself infront of the fire...........



I am so pleased that she'd settled in here with me. Pippin is sort of tolerating her, he's getting used to having to ask to go outside during the day, and his freedom to go through the catflap at night. Sometimes he comes down to the fire to get his place back, but soon she sidles back and he concedes. Mandi is of course, missing her and I feel very honoured that she entrusts her with me.

Oh well, a lovely turkey leg has been roasted, and I'm going to have a lovely tasty supper.
