Christmas Milly

 I had to post these pictures of Milly before the whole Christmas season is over. I apologise for the quality of the photos, they were taken using my iphone on the spur of the moment, as those of you who have cats can understand!

She took a great liking to our Christmas tree, it was her new favourite hang out and as our tree had several bell ornaments on it you could always hear when she had climbed in it again. I had to reattach branches numerous times and rearrange the tinsel as well as constantly tell her to stop chewing the branches; and light bulbs :S on occassion.

Sadly her new toy was taken down yesterday due to my not being able to moan at her about chewing it anymore and she fought the decision all the way!

She climbed into it and attacked us while we removed ornaments, helped remove some of the branches for us (haha!) and stayed in it as it slowly became more and more bare of baubles and branches.

We had a wonderfully quiet Christmas just the three of us, lots of tasty food and relaxing with some good telly too! I'll miss our pretty and very colourful tree until next year and I know Milly will too!

Snow Snow Snow!

 Firstly, I apologise for the light quality of these photos, it was very cloudy on Sunday so they aren't as great as they could be, but I wanted to share a little of our lovely Sunday with you.

Firstly is a picture of Milly's first venture into the snow! She didn't really go outside during our first two weeks of heavy snow, she didn't seem to keen. But on Sunday Chris and I decided to go out and build a snowman, or, as you can see a Snotoro! (for those who haven't seen My Neighbour Totoro by Studio Ghibli, he is a large cat/bear tree spirit)

Milly was bouncing round the garden, pouncing on the snow and running through our glass cold frame that is missing two panels. Unfortunately she misjudged her route once and ran into the side, luckily she was okay so we didn't feel bad for laughing at her. Poor little fluff!

Later on we went out to our local pub The Brewery Tap and sat by the fire with good friends, eating cake, playing Scrabble and toasting marshmallows. It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening.
