Boxing Day 2009

Emma and Tom stayed over the Christmas Holidays and brought with them their two kittens Ozzie and Missy. Frog wasn't too happy about it at first but after about a week she got used to it! Ozzie of course kept running up the Christmas tree and collected quite a few baubles to chase. He's favourite were the beads as he could run down the tree and head towards the hall, string of beads held very expertly in his mouth! Luckily the tree never fell over only he did pull the table cloth off the dinning table!
This picture above, is of him in Emma's tree...he's soooo cute, I've forgiven him for pulling my tree to bits!! (pictured below)
Boxing Day the Christmas tree's looking a bit sad after Ozzie's attacked it and there's no pressies left!! In the end I guess it was lucky that I'd left off nearly half the trinkets I usually put on it as I'm quite sure Ozzie would've had it over! Timmmm-ber!!!!
We stuffed ourselves silly Christmas Day so were looking forward to getting out. Usually on Boxing Day we hunt out the Point to point, which has been held every year for as long as I can remember somewhere 'secret' in the Forest. The local paper usually tells you where it finishes so that's where everyone heads for, come wind, rain, sun or sleet! We used to drag the girls with us when they were little but once they were old enough to know better they stopped coming! (or hid!)


Tom and Emma came last year although, this year we went off on our own. As you can see, it was very wet!

Funny too, how suddenly all the world and his wife are suddenly allowed to park just where they like!!We usually take our own coffee as the queue can get very long!


Last year on the way home, via the pub, or was it after we'd left the pub?? (not me, just John! I was driving!) we spotted these flying fish, they were huge! But there were no sign of them this year...
Just in case you wondered, they weren't real giant flying fish...they were kites! (The beer's not that good down here!!!)
This year was no different, John took a 'short cut' to the pub. Nice views, even better in Summer! Yes!! I was cold!!
Have I ever told you, I not only cat, dog and house sit, I chicken sit too! Before we made our way home we had to call in to were I work to feed their cats and chickens and collect any eggs (fresh eggs are sooo much more tasty!!)

On the way home we drove the car down to the beach and stopped for a nice cup of hot frothy coffee and a mince pie covered with cream! So much for walking off yesterday's Christmas dinner!!

  2. Such an adorable kitten! And so much fun! My cats did not do anything fun with the tree this year... It was right out boring. I did have high hopes that my 6 kg cat (who belives that he is small and cute) would try to go for the star in the top, but no... *Dissapionted!*

    Nice to see you again!
