First, Happy Christmas to everyone!! I hope you all received what you wished for! Jackson forgot to draw a name out of the hat last night – he is a bad cat! The answer to the question was Kidsilk Haze – Purple Haze by Jimmi Hendrix!! And, Jackson has got his act together and drawn a winner…it is….Linda (RobLin2.Murdock@sympatico.ca). Linda, please send me your address and your prize will be on its way to you.
Jackson has gone off the sardines! I think he has sussed out the medicine in them and so I shall have to try something else. My larder is groaning with tins of sardines – Slip will have to eat them. Jackson is being naughty today. I have 2 vases of lilies. Lilies are poisonous to cats and so I have one vase in the bathroom and one in our bedroom. The one in the bathroom is high up and he cannot reach it and he is not allowed in the bedroom. He opened the bedroom door today and saw the lilies and made a bee line for them I shut him out and also shut the door of my office as it leads to the bedroom door. Undaunted he opened both doors and found the lilies. As fast as I remove him and shut the doors, he re-opens them!! I shall have to find a new home for the lilies.
I am cooking roast grouse and shall sit them on rounds of bread that I have fried in olive oil and garlic. Roast potatoes, sprouts, carrots and honey glazed parsnips to go with the grouse. I am also cooking a pheasant for Slip.
I have sent John out to do an inventory of all Addi needles – that should keep him occupied for some time! I have sets of Addi Turbo, Addi Lace and Addi Bamboo on their way to me.
Now its back to the kitchen!! Don’t eat too much!
