George is finally home, and in time for Christmas.
Our ginger cat, George, was badly injured on 2 November, and apart from a few days, has spent the last 7 weeks at the vets (thanks heavens for pet insurance) Finally, yesterday, we got to bring him home. He has regained some of the weight he had lost, and his fur is started to grow again too.
As you can see from today’s photos he looks very comfortable, and seems to be taking the hectic madness of Christmas very much in his stride!
He also seems to have fallen for a Santa hat in a big way!
Apart from some digital-scrapped gifts and gift cards, I have not managed much digital scrapping recently, and I am really missing it. I hope to soon have more to share…so watch this space.
My Christmas Survey/ Traditions
Hmmmm….how about Christmas Pudding? Love it or loathe it? Do you serve it? Do you know what it is?
Personally I loathe it, and have never made one. This years ours has been purchased from Marks & Spencers, so as their advertisement would say “It’s not just Christmas Pudding, it is a Marks & Spencers Luxury Recipe Christmas Pudding with succulent vine fruits, glace cherries & walnuts, infused with brandy, rum & port”.
It can also be served with brandy butter, brandy cream or even brandy custard.
So what do you traditionally serve after your Christmas Dinner as a dessert? Please share.
Finally a “funny” by husband shared with me. I hope you enjoy it.
