Yesterday evening we had a visitor. I don't know if you can make it out but a pheasant set up camp at the top of my hedge - much to the consternation of Daisy who did not want to come in.
So, onto today. I managed to complete the 12 days of Christmas bunting - adding the buttons after lunch when I had time to sit down.
Next up was banana cake for the WI meeting (we all have to bring something and I had bananas to use up). I use a Nigella Lawson recipe from her domestic goddess book. Every time I make the cake I forget how nice it is and a fab way to use up brown bananas.
Finally it was time to walk the dogs - today was a much nicer sunnier day - before heading out to Slimming World. We have a new leader tonight so it will be interesting to see how that goes. Whilst we were out we came across some old doggy friends. Their black lab, Rocky, has put on a lot of weight and the owners were complementing Millie on how sleek and healthy she looked (get her!!) It did Daisy some good getting to see a new and large dog up close - she started by crying and ended up racing round him.
By the way - don't fret mum - the van has been sold!
