My dear friend, Linda, has lent me this book to read for Christmas:
How Mrs Claus saved Christmas by Jeff Guinn
Doesn't the book cover look so pretty with my red and yellow roses? Together, they make a lovely Christmas display.
On a further Christmassy note, I had a lovely seafood lunch on Sunday by the Yarra River at Waterfront Restaurant with my "Tennis" Group or Mother's Group. We have been meeting for over twenty-six years now. We don't really play tennis, we just used to meet as a playgroup in the club rooms of a tennis club - hence the name - but we do get teased a lot about our lack of tennis prowess and playing!
.... and to continue the Christmassy theme, I finished-finished my Baby's First Christmas Ornament - as you know, I am always very anxious about my finishing ability but I must admit, I am pretty pleased with how this one has turned out.
What do you think? Will it past muster?
On another note, we have had the 'cat wars' here as DS1 came home on Friday night (yay! So lovely to have him home) with their cat, Nobu (DDIL is due to arrive this Saturday).
Best to say that Furio and Milo are feeling a little put out and Furio and Nobu are duking it out for who is Alpha Cat! lol!
Now, guess who is trying to get close to me whilst I am doing some authoring for a publisher?? Furio, of course!
Ooops! Mum has got cross with me and pushed me away. Okay, I will go stick my head in under the monitor - that should be comfortable! lol!
Okay, that is it for me for now,
P.S. Sorry, no pic of Milo this post, he is very skittish with the new cat in the house - next time, I hope!
