24.11.2013 Juno isn’t known for jumping onto any old lap so it’s quite an honour when she does. However, prior to this being taken, she was rather unladylike in her ‘trumpiness’ so Dave clearly wasn’t hanging around to be another victim of Juno’s bum! Cats. No shame!
23.11.2013 Marie, Dave, Em and Dan came to stay with us again this weekend and we’ve had such a great time. There’s nothing better on a cold November day than to take a trip to the German Christmas Market, be awed by all the twinkly lights and take in all the sights and smells whilst sipping on hot mulled wine - which Marie and I thoroughly enjoyed!!…..and although Dave doesn’t look convinced that he’s having a good time, he actually was!
22.11.2013 I wasn’t born when JFK was assassinated but I can’t deny how moving it is to see the footage of that day. When Steven and I were in America a few years ago we went to Washington and visited Arlington National Cemetery where we saw his gravesite and the Eternal Flame that sits over it. I honestly believe that the murder of JFK is one America’s greatest tragedies, and the destiny of a nation really was altered that day. R.I.P. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 50 years ago today.
21.11.2013 Gotta love the book man who comes to work every month. A few tips from Jamie are very welcome in this time of ‘skint-ness’.
20.11.2013 Came home to lots of butternut squash and sweet potato all peeled and chopped by steven in preparation for another batch of my homemade soup. We could happily live off this stuff its so good!
19.11.2013 Wood pigeon. Like :)
18.11.2013 Christmas has come early! What a fantastic surprise I found when I came home from work tonight. My lovely, and very generous, cousin Linda who lives in New Zealand, has sent myself and Steven some gifts and our first Christmas card of the year! To say we’ve never met (we found each other on Ancestry.com!) I feel like i’ve known her forever. We can’t wait to have you come stay with us next year Linda…here’s to the great Morley meeting of kiwi and pomme!! Lots of love and thanks once again :) xxx
17.11.2013 Steven and I decided to have a clothes clear out before we move. The result was 3 bin bags ready to take to the clothing bank. It’s amazing how much stuff you have that you really don’t need. Hopefully others can benefit from our unwanted items, waste not want not!
16.11.2013 Our favourite restaurant, Jaipur, sadly closed down recently so I knew it wouldn’t be long before I started craving their amazing ‘Paneer Mekani’ dish. I’ve never found anywhere that makes it as fabulously as Raj, from Jaipur, so I decided to create my own. Working from 4 recipes I found on the internet and using bits from all of them I came, somewhat, close to his original dish tonight. A few more attempts and a bit of tweaking and I actually think I might do Raj’s creation some justice! Yay me!
15.11.2013 Well, there’s no escaping it now. Christmas is almost upon us!
14.11.2013 Dan’s long awaited birthday present has finally come round tonight! Steven took him to Leeds Arena to watch the WWE wrestling! Here they are, sign at the ready, gearing up for the onslaught! The outcome? A great night was had by both and Dan was doubly chuffed as his hero, John Cena, made an unexpected appearance too. Happy days :)
12.11.2013 Cosy Tuesday night in. Just me, my cats and my favourite TV programme!
11.11.2013 We haven’t seen Mooey around for a while so it was a nice surprise to find him curled up on the sofa when I got home from work tonight! - make yourself at home mate!
10.11.2013 We went to the Everyman Cinema in the Trinity Centre this afternoon to see 'Gravity' and it was absolutely fantastic! The CGI effects in were incredibly beautiful and seamless and I genuinely did feel I was floating off into the depths of space at zero-gravity! Nothing more to say say other than it’s a fantastic film and everyone should watch it at least once. Bravo!
