Dinky has lost responsibility for 2 of the pheasant eggs as Babi stole them off her during the night and has claimed them as her own. They are both nestled in the same nest so it doesn't make much of a difference.
Christmas is being planned... every meal has been written down between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. Whether the plans will remain the same is yet to be seen. I envisage many changes before then. Probably on the day actually.
The weather has packed in and doesn't look as though it's going to clear any time soon so we have holed up indoors and I think tree decorating is on the cards for this afternoon... if we can find the decorations. We have a freshly cut tree from the garden though which is nice. I love the smell of pine wafting through the house. I just hope the dog doesn't pull it over. He tipped all the water out of his bowl yesterday so he could bring it into the living room. Silly dog.
And on a side note, I was looking through some classifieds the other night and found, to my amusement, 2 ads, one wanting terracotta garden boots and the other wanting a rotary hue. I found it very amusing. Maybe my amusement was emphasised by wine?
Anyway, Renata and Brian are up tomorrow for a few days so hopefully the weather clears up.
