This and that
Brenin: Back on the 18th of June I wrote about Brenin and his broken toe, after many battles to keep the bandages on his foot (daily replacement, sometimes more) + several trips to the vet, he finally made it to the 8th July with good enough recovery for us to remove the bandages. He is no longer limping (but I have noticed he is being careful when he runs about) and it doesn't hurt any more. So glad that is over. My husband ended up staying at home for 2 weeks and my son stayed home for almost a week (fortunately it was school holidays)!!!
This is my husband filling up the buckets (where we store the dog food) - we need to buy 20kg bags of dog food each fortnight. They also each 2 cans of (home-brand) sardines each day.
Ruby: she has now forgiven me my 7 days absences but keeping a watchful eye in-case I disappear again!! As she is an indoor cat I thought she needed something interesting to play in so I ordered her a tunnel which I picked up today (not quite 1 metre in length). Below are some photos of her playing in it - I have learnt my lesson - do not wiggle my fingers at the entrances as she can run very fast from one end to the other and it HURTS!! Tristan tucked the tunnel into her scratching tower to make it more exciting!!
Baking: I thought my sons needed some home-make cupcakes - I hadn't made this recipe before but they contain 1 1/2 cups of coconut (+ the usual flour, eggs, milk and sugar) which I am told makes for a far more moist cupcake. You will noticed 3 cupcakes with no icing, Tristan thought they were nicer without the chocolate icing - I have to disagree!.

Time to think about dinner . . .
no idea what to cook . . .
what do you cook when you can't think of anything?!?!?
And it isn't because I am short of cookbooks, far from it!!
