Syjunta, Syjunta


I enjoyed my last afternoon having a Syjunta that I organised another one for today. I enjoyed tidying up and cutting these beautiful roses I found in the garden, to welcome my guests.


I got a selection of lovely cheeses and breads (and chicken for pao the cheese hater)


and got out the crockery we’d inherited from pao’s mother


and baked a lovely lemon and raspberry cake (I took a leaf out of Jeanne’s cupboards and got a Betty Crocker kit).


It was such an enjoyable afternoon. I worked on my sock surprisingly without any kitten intervention whatsoever (maybe they are growing up?)


One of my guests had given me some beads she’d made at school and I made us both some stitch markers. She is a keen crocheter so I made some with some lobster clasps which she can unclasp easily and I made myself these with split rings for knitting.


Of course, it wouldn’t be Saturday without the cats. Katerina was already sleepy before we began.


Claude was very excited by the roses which sent me straight to Google as he started licking them. Thankfully I can report that roses are not poisonous to cats!

Happy Saturday!

Happy Birthday, kitten twins, Claude and Katerina!

These two babies have been inseparable since birth and they are a joy to live with – such fun, mischief and delights. I’ve only selected a few photos from when they were teeny. I’d picked out 88 out of all the hundreds I’d taken but I figured I’d only show you the few from the first moments and post again at the weekend.
