It seems strange to think it now, but this time last week we still had lots of snow. We had snow for over a week and then it disappeared literally overnight. We had great fun in it and took some lovely photos, but it was starting to hamper day-to-day life and I’d had enough of it for a little while at least.
Last Saturday evening we braved the snow and more crucially the ice to go for a family meal out at a local curry house. It was my husband’s birthday on Monday and it was by way of being a birthday celebration meal. It’s quite an upmarket curry house with plush decor and good quality food.
H had his usual choice: shish kebab. He’s used to having it at home from our usual takeaway, but this one was a rather spicier version than he was used to. Still he ate it all. The poppadoms slipped down of course, in fact H wanted to eat the lot and we were lucky to get a look in.
Generally this week has been about life getting back to normal after the snow and we’ve spent quite a lot of time catching up with jobs and clearing the to do list (not that there isn’t loads still on there).
Our cats didn’t have such a good week though. Recently there has been a new cat on the block. He’s a bit cheeky and has been hanging around our garden and hovering near the cat flap. One evening this week, he actually came in. We’ve had a cat flap for about 7 years at 2 different houses and this has never happened before. Amber is a sensitive soul and he’s been most put out about it all: he’s been jumping at shadows and has acted very aggressively with our other cat as well. Here’s H giving them some extra reassurance.
