I hope everyone is enjoying the new year so far ;)
My new year started with me getting up to use the loo downstairs and managing to step straight in some cat vomit. Lovely! I'm hoping it's not an omen. Fortunately this was on the hard floor of the hallway and not on the carpeted stairs, so easy to clean up. All the cats were very hungry so obviously not a serious issue for any of them. I imagine it was Zero who has a tendency to gulp down his evening meal in huge excitement and his stomach often doesn't appreciate that... Either that or someone was scared by all the fireworks at midnight.
It was really frosty this morning (4C) and Mr Cee and I decided we have been sitting around too much and so we went on a walk to a different set of local shops which involved a walk through the woods at the bottom of our road. Always nice to do that and we can walk for a couple of miles using that route. By the time we got going the frost had gone from the grass and we came across some very confused daffodils who clearly think it's Spring....
There are buds everywhere after our very mild winter, and I hope that we don't get anymore frosts to ruin the Spring flowers. We even saw a Magnolia tree with buds! Good grief!!!
The rest of the day has been spent slowly taking down some of the Christmas decorations. So today I sorted out our main living room and cleaned all the windows and mirrors which are now sparkly! We will leave the tree until 12th Night, but I like to tidy and take down the other decorations and clean so that it's not such a chore. I've also been making bread for tonight's supper which will be cold meats, cheese and anti pasti with home made foccacia bread (yum!).
Happy 2016 friends!
