Notching up the achievements

Done massive supermarket shopping trip
Done smaller market trip for pudding and salmon
Put salmon on to cure
Made bottom half of trifle
Decorated cake
Made panforte
Made brandy butter
Took cat to vet to be put to sleep
Made breadcrumbs for stuffing
Collected first batch of relatives from the airport
Cleaned out part of the fridge (more to do there)
Written lists for final market and supermarket trips

Still to go before the day:
Wrap all the presents
Do final market and supermarket trips (twilight EPIC market tonight)
Organise relatives to get the turkey & ham & bacon while I'm at at work Xmas eve
Make rest of stuffing
Finish trifle

One of these things is not like the others. It's not so easy to be festive at the moment.

I'm so sorry. Somehow 'dumb animals' have a tendency to get to us.

I am so sorry to hear about your kitty - my cat sends you some purrs.

Oh Cath, I'm so sorry :( Be well, lovely lady, we're thinking of you.

So sorry to hear this, Cath. Strength and love to you right now. Hopefully having friends and relatives around (and a little Christmas cheer) will help you through it a little.

Cath, as a long time, quietly anonymous reader of your blog I am moved to break my silence and send my sympathies. Hopefully the visiting rellies will lift your spirits.

Cath said...

Thank you.

Hope a house full of loved ones today lifted your spirits a little.

Your puss was blessed to have a life of love, care, safety, companionship and plenty of weird places to sleep. I know you both did absolutely everything you could, during his healthy life as well as his slow decline, to keep him happy and comfortable and dearly loved.
