Let it Snow!

It was lovely today! Although the snow wreaked havoc in the rest of the country it was just nice here in Catdonald. Suki was very excited to see his first snow although Lollycat decided that the towel on the heated bathroom floor was the most sensible place to be for the day.

Hubbie pointed out that the first of the snowdrop bulbs I planted have popped their heads up which is really exciting for me! I have some indoor crocuses appearing and some tulips in teh wee plastic greenhouse, wont be long till we’re back in full gardening mode again.

Spent all day prepping for a big boring meeting tomorrow but managed to sneak outside this evening to build a snowman, First one in the new house! Neighbours spotted me and must have thought I was mad! Then I ate nearly a whole bag of mini eggs and felt ill, wont be doing that again in a hurry, at least not until I’ve worked off all the calories on the cross trainer!!! (Which hubbie has been using as a coat hanger lately) Off for a kip now, cant wait for tomorrows meeting to be over, will be great to get rid of this project!

Wild Weather

As is the norm for this time of year, and around the full moon, we are being battered with winds and rains at the moment. The cats cant stand it so have decided just to annoy me all day instead of going outside on their usual adventures.
I got the Boywonder, our web assistant at the office, back today after his 3 month travels round the USA. Was great having an extra pair of hands and looking forward to having him back full-time soon, when the pennies allow. I was doing a lot of multitasking today between projects but hoping to spend a whole day designing things tomorrow. Satyed indoors all day yesterday and today to avoid the weather but going to go for a wee jaunt round the block just now and then a session on the cross trainer beckons. Struggling a bit to make it ‘routine’ just feels ‘boring’ but need to keep at it.
Attempted to cook a saffron risotto for dinner but didnt quite get the hand of the rice, was a bit undercooked and Hubby wasn’t keen. Ah well I can always pick up a chippy on my wee walk!

Following the purchase of our new Sony Bravia TV Hubbie decided to save us £50+ by modifying our old TV stand. It used to hole a 26″ Sanyo TV and had little plugs to make sure the tele stayed in place. Huby sawed these off and then spray painted the stand black so now it matches the new fireplace and the black surround of the new TV. Clever Hubbie! My amazing friend from back home donated 4 rhubarb crowns to our new garden so while I was working on Friday Hubby planted them in their new home. We’ve tried one at the back of the garden which is quite shady and we’ve added another one into a sunnier space to see which one fares better. The second spot had also been well manured last season and I’ve heard that will help so finger’s crossed. We had some friends over last night to enjoy the warm fireplace and savour some of our favourite Sailor Jerry rum, sooo tasty! The weather is completely wild today, heavy winds and now the rain, it’s my least favourite type of weather when I’m stuck in the city. When I used to live beside the sea I would love this weather as you could get all wrapped up then walk along the front and see the huge waves crashing on the shore, at some points on the island the waves would smash onto the main streets! great fun and quite humbling to remember how small we are. After a few rums last night we moved onto the topic of Quantum theory , not one of us managed to explain the very basics, which is terrible! need to brush up on Schroidingers Cat!
