No Clari. It's just as bad except that you can eventually explain to kids that you can't cuddle them all day because you need to get things done like feeding them or going to work. Both have their attractions and plus points.
We have a new kitten. He's all white so we've called him Cosmos.
He's very confident and is, in theory, used to dogs so we hope they'll get on fine when we've done the introductions. Needs to settle in first but he's a confident wee chap who likes exploring and cuddles.
We went to the Xmas market in Mothiers-les-Mauxfaits today. Better than we expected - local foods - cured sausage, smoked fish, oysters, cheeses, honey, confit fruits and beers plus some of the usual tat and quite a few stalls of handcrafted decs and prezzies. Bit twee for my taste but some good stuff too. The best bit is, of course, the old market building itself.
I now have a smoked cod's roe in the freezer for making taramasalata for Xmas. We saw it done on professional masterchef so OH thinks I can do it too...........
Sorry you're feeling down Pdoc and Pat and hope it passes.
Hosta - glad you're relaxing and getting some sleep.
Liri - hope you get all the painting done in time. Shame there's no-one to help but sometimes time on your own can be precious for recharging and reflecting.
