What a busy day. The new fridge came today so I had clean out the old one (I throw away 2 large bags of empty jars, out-of-date food and other things that didn't belong to me!) and nearer the time of the delivery move all the food into an eskey and the laundry basket For once the delivery came on time - spot on midday. I could then go and do the grocery shopping and restock the fridge and freezer. When I got home and started to fill the fridge I realised this one doesn't have a butter compartment nor a place for eggs - two things I didn't think of when buying it!! Otherwise it is fine - it is an up-side-down fridge/freezer with the freezer at the bottom - I have been told that they are better - also for those of us getting older, far less bending!!
After all my running about (I also went to the music store to get some things for Caius) I sat in the garden with Charlie Cat admiring the jonquils. I love the smell of jonquils, but they can be a bit too over powering for indoors - so I always sniff them when I walk past a flower in the garden (weird!).
While I was outside, Ruby was lying in the sun warming her tummy:)
?????? a ball of fluff or a cat in the basket?
Tristan decided to cook biscuits - just 2 very large ones. They tasted delicious - very buttery chocolate chip cookies. Tristan's girlfriend turned 21 last week and he gave her a ticket to the Zoo to "Pat the Cheetahs". It was a freezing cold and wet day (which is why the cheetahs are in their cave) but that didn't stop Kathleen having a wonderful time. She was a little nervous as one would imagine, these are cats with very big teeth! She said that when she was patting the cheetah they started to purr - in fact it is the only "big cat" that does purr (but can't roar) - imagine one lying around the house!!!

Time to think about dinner - create something middle eastern out of lamb mince.
