Kittens

The wicked S kittens continue to surprise and delight .

Girly Cat flies past us into the utility room and dives into the pile of newspapers there for purposes of lining the litter tray . Squats for yet another long wee, looking happily over her shoulder as she does so . Triumph !

Navigation ....


Me yesterday , when my excellent navigation skills were called into question .

Rosemary cake ....


Rosemary cake , with rosemary and orange infused icing ......the picture doesnt do it justice , it tastes better than it looks .

Tickets .......




Collecting tickets for Edinburgh at Central Station , decided to tarry awhile in town ..... my loitering included coffee and carrot muffin in Cafe Royale , never need an excuse to go there !
My real reason for lingering .. D hit a problem hanging blinds , not his fault , the wall was not straight at all , or the window frames were askew or something . Either way having fretted long and hard ove rthe Cutting of the Fabric and the Hacksawing of the Rod and Wood Dowelling bit , now having got it perfect , it was hanging off to the left ..... much anguish and hand wringing .
I felt my interests would be best served by Leaving him To It .....
and yes arrived home and it was all perfect . Blackout achieved . Now N can stay in bed all day if she likes , the sun will no longer disturb her .
Spotted in Fenwick cosmetic dept , a very fine looking pot of something called Hand Relief . Surely not ? I had to retrace my steps .... hand cream no less.
Action day here .... raining and blustering outside . Two families back from hols today so a bit of a clean up at their places to make sure it looks ok when they return . Putting rubbish outside making sure litter trays are pristine etc ... but I wonder if any of it is worth it . Sure that as soon as I pull the door shut behind me the cats skip about doing their worst . I usually leave notes too but I often get feedback about my illegible handwriting so maybe its not really worth it ?
Baking a rosemary cake , my first cake in ages . Fresh rosemary out of the garden . D is putting up blackout blinds in Nat's room . teenagers need darkness so they can stay asleep long after the sun has risen and she has had to do her best stacking her spare pillows against the window frames , to no avail . D fretting as he cuts off swathes off the blinds , in case he gets it wrong . I'm still considering the bathroom , and occasionally making forays into N's room to throw out another pile of "stuff" .
Trip to the station later for train tickets for Edinburgh for this week ( in this rain ? may not be wise ? )
Its all go .
