Cue Julie Andrews
dum dum-dum, dum, dum-dum, one two three, one two three
and whiskers on kittens...

Freaked out cats
Pissed off wet goats
no outside work today
just finished Eat Pray love by Elizabeth Gilbert... brilliant read.
currently reading Onion Girl by Charles DeLint ... engrossing but uncomfortable
crochet Christmas snowflake tally: 9

plan for the day : numerous cups of tea, more snowflakes, Dr.Who marathon
