Meet little Lola

Its been a bad few weeks in my household lately so it has been a refreshing change to welcome our new little kitten into our home.  Her name is Lola and she was a stray kitten rescued by the RSPCA.

My beautiful old cat, Muffin, passed away last month at the grand old age of 19 years and we missed him so much.  Lola has helped to fill the huge gap that Muffin left behind.

After several weeks being very poorly in hospital, my grandad passed away last week and we had his funeral yesterday.  The sun shone down on us and, all things considering, it was a nice day.  He would have been proud. 

With everything that has been happening lately I am so disorganised for Christmas this year and my blogging has been seriously neglected over the past few weeks.  I will be running around on Christmas Eve like a manic.  Goodness knows what the kids will find in their Christmas stockings this year!

The kids put the Christmas tree up last night, while I listened to my new Michael Buble Christmas CD and stopped Lola from eating the tinsel, chewing the tree lights and diving in the box of decorations.  There's nothing like a new little kitten to make you forget your worries - they will keep you running around after them all day!

Have a great day!
