Once he realised he had been spotted he flopped down as if to say "what are you going to do about it?" He's been having some mad 5 minutes recently and is so funny to watch, especially when he chases the snow :o)
I did buy myself a little treat today.
Mum and I always go to Starbucks for a coffee once we've finished our shopping (as I'm sure I've mentioned before) and today, they had a basket with little goodies in it at the counter. This tree ornament was too cute - it'll be our one new ornament for this year!
The second part of my treat was this mug! I love mugs and I'd been eyeing this one for a couple of weeks. Love the swirls, love the red inside and love that it's quite big. I've just had my first cup of tea out of it and think I may have to try a Chai latte, from Whitards, in it tonight!
And, we found our Christmas movie for Christmas Eve. I believe it's fairly old (it's certainly not new) but we've never seen it. They had it on special at Sainsburys and both Emily and I thought it might be quite funny. Movie problem solved :o)
This afternoon I've made another batch of Cranberry sauce
and I also made the base for the Christmas gravy (a la Jamie Oliver). We've been watching Jamie's Christmas at Home series and he showed how he was making his gravy in advance and then all you need to do is add it to the turkey juice on Christmas Day and it takes a lot of the hassle out of the gravy making. This was the final stages and it is now sitting cooling as I type before being poured into a container and frozen until Friday.
As you may have guessed, not a lot of scrapbooking has gone on today. I'm still hopeful that I'll be able to do a couple of pages tonight but it'll have to be after I've wrapped the presents that I need for tomorrow. If I get them finished, I'll do another blog post tonight.
