Wednesday 9 February 2011: Another Day Closer To Spring
Another exciting day. Woke up to find The Cat Of Sadness with his face in mine, so I got up to feed him. But instead of disappearing down the stairs with a swirling tail and a hearty pad-dap-a-dap-pad-dap-a-dap of paws, he promptly fell over, with a miau, into his all-I-want-is-a-bit-of-attention pose. Honestly. Blimmen cats. Anyway, that meant that he could have a social breakfast and we could share the delightful whiff of Felix mingling with coffee and tea. A lovely start to the day.
The day got better when the sun burnt off the mist and the temperature climbed to a giddy 12 degrees C. So off in search of today's Blip and here it is. Yes, it is another bit of house decoration. But it's very pretty (or sehr schön as I can say with some confidence) and it does look good against the blue of the sky. And the flowers are really good in a related to Charles Rennie Mackintosh way.
The rest of the day has been me
swearing learning more German. I apologise in advance if I ever meet you and your name is Beate, Armin or Petra. I cannot pronounce your names for love nor money (Liebe oder Geld maybe).
