Christmas Day


Sunday, November 15, 2009

It's 9am and I've been up for three hours. Just now there was an upheaval from under the quilt at the foot of the bed and a mole like lump wriggled its way up to me. Sing with me, to that oldie, Good Morning Starshine.

Good morning PYEWACKET
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Happy second birthday Pyewacket

Pyewacket is enjoying her Gizzy quilt that she got from the US for Christmas. It was designed in shades of lavender and wisps of leafy green.

Now that she is two,
we have to say,
that Pyewacket is practically perfect,
in every way.

Our Trixie rocks!

Interesting evening at our house. 12.20am, Alessandro came into my room to get me, and woke me up and scared me, and when I yelled, he yelled. Trixie, our big, squishy black and white cat had a big huntsman bailed up.

While I was getting up, he came back in to hand me the squirming Siamese. We met in the darkened doorway and when I shrieked, he shrieked too, because we both scared each other. One should never try holding a squirming siamese, with no shirt on, while shrieking. He was very good, he didn't drop her, he placed her on the ground.

Ok, I very bravely went into the room next to the study where the spider was. Trixie was jumping up and down and stomping on it. Sumo wrestler style. THUMP! KAPOW! It was like a Batman movie. Holy cat whiskers!

So Alessandro is shrieking and waving a Baygon can, I am cowering and waving a Baygon can. The other two cats are cheering Trixie on and saying they would do it themselves, but really, as she is so good at it...

It was all over in a minute. Before he could get the cap off the can, I think the thing died of fright. Just as well. It picked the wrong house to wander into.
