That was 2007

As the year comes to a close, I reflect back on the joys and problems of the past 12 months. 2007 has not been the best year for us and it is my hope that 2008 will see an improved economy and a better opportunity for us to move on.

Today is a quiet time whene we are both feeling fragile from an early morning shopping trip. The local cash machine was being repaired and we had to wait for the branch to open before we could obtain the cash with which to shop. The shop was quiet and easily negotiated.

The demands of the cats was met with the boys challenging each other for my lap before lunch. They both ended up with a fair share. Indoor feline activities seem favourable at this time of year.

Out of doors, the world is still functioning, with the birds gathering around our feeder. I have seen blue tits, coal tits, sparrows, dunnocks, starlings, the ubiquitous wood pidgions and squirrels. In fact, the local squirrel has almost cleared out our neighbours feeder this morning. The other day he was running up our drive with a couple of cheesy whatsits in his mouth. What a lark!

Happy New Year

Hello Paul

The best one so far. I love Rosie's photo of you with the cats and your 'head shot' of a cat in the window (which I assume is a cut and paste job, not that it detracts from it in any way).

Happy 2008 to both of you.

All of the pics are genuine snaps. Still a bit rough from the illness.
Best wishes and happy new year.
