I'll do a diary. I got up at 6.30 am, because I was awake and if I go back to sleep I have a fuzzy head when I wake up the second time. First things first, a mug of coffee. I sat at the dining room table looking out over the garden, and what did I see, Oscar was on the outside table looking in at me. He came in and I gave him his breakfast. Extra treat, some chicken on top of the Whiskas.
Heidi was on the window sill in the living room, ooops, she has been sick overnight. That happens when she finishes off any left over food which Oscar didn't eat the night before. Mayze had her breakfast in bed as usual, she has chicken. No sign of Micky, he had a bowl of food last night, in the house. It was freezing cold so I let him come in for half an hour to eat it.
Then I spotted Micky, he has taken over the cat shelter at the bottom of the garden, Oscar has been pushed out.
Two paracetamols, ribs still a bit sore. Porridge for my breakfast with frozen berry fruits. Text from Simplesista, a friend and blog reader from Bradford. That was nice, we will have to meet up again sometime.
10 am I went out for my walk, misty and cold, but walking at a brisk pace warmed me up. More people than normal walking about, everyone was smiling, saying Good Morning, and Merry Christmas. Friend walking their dog, a treat from my pocket was scoffed, the dog not the friend, ha ha. Kids out playing on their scooters up and down the street.
Ooops, missed a phone call while I was out so I sent a text back. Sister rang me, they have just arrived at Adams for the family Christmas dinner.
My lunch. Mushrooms, rice, and an egg, on a slice of seeded bread smothered in cream cheese. A glass of red wine, followed by a blueberry muffin.
2.30 pm, some shopping bags to cut out, want to shrink my stash of fabric.
I'll add more to this post later.
4pm. Cut nine shopping bags out, now having a coffee. All cats inside, Heidi sitting on top of a radiator, Mayze still in bed, Oscar on his chair having just scoffed his tea/dinner.
5 pm, no light on at Barry's so I went to check on Scruff. He beat me to it, just got back. Quick chat and back home. Micky saw me coming and met me at the front door. I normally feed him outside, but today he can come in.
Angela sent message, come round if you like.
I am a dirty stopout, 10.50 pm, and I've just rolled back in. Wine was drunk, cheese and crackers scoffed, chocolate devoured. Nice night with a friend. Goodnight. ilona
