This was supposed to be a post about Christmas...

I had so many plans.


Plans to tell you all about Christmas through the medium of photos and words.


But I have been stopped in my tracks by this rather marvellous bug.


However.


I feel I am now back on track. My system has been cleared out (both literally and figuratively) and I am feeling a little more myself.


Which is good, because folks, The Countdown is officially O.V.E.R.


That's right. My friends are on their way over from America to this fair Isle. And I will be seeing them very soon for the first time in over a year and a half.


It's all very exciting.


There's a chance they'll be a little delayed thanks to the numpty who decided to try and blow himself up on a plane over Christmas (does anyone else not watch the news over Christmas? It's bad I know but I must confess I hardly ever do, so was a little shocked when I finally got around to watching it yesterday). But even the delays can't dampen my spirits.


So I am off. We go to London early tomorrow morning and won't be returning until January 1st which means that I have to take this opportunity now to wish you

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

And I will be back, hopefully on the 2nd January with a bit of a delayed Christmas post and to tell you about the shenanigans we get up to down in London Town.

I hope you'll bear with me while I get myself caught up on all your blogs, I've a feeling I'm going to have a lot of reading to do when I get back. But read them all I will and you will get comments a-plenty from me.

But I will leave you with one photo from this Christmas. Of someone who definitely enjoyed their Christmas. And who may, or may not, be a little bit high on catnip, as you might be able to guess from the rather glassy look in their eyes....

I'm so pleased that you're feeling better and just in time for your trip to London.

Cats really do love Christmas - new treats and toasting in front of fires, what more could they want?

Happy New Year! Have a really great time with your friends! xxx

That photo is so funny!!!

Well I hope you have a great time in London, you've been looking forward to this so much!!!

Oh and I never watch the news over xmas - like I never watch it when I'm on holiday either - that's just the way things turn out and it's so much more relaxing that way!! x
