jrc - your picture made me laugh
DS was only telling me the other day of a friend who had washed a garment on a gentle wash but stopped it after a short while as the garment was very delicate - they opened the machine and out came a wet, dazed cat
. Apparently it recovered from the ordeal.
I think small bulbs in the garden can get eaten by mice and things.
Sequins are known as squeakins in our family after my daughter, aged 5, came home from school and announced they were required for an outfit for a school play. It was ages before she could get the word right (I must see if she can now!).
Birthday going well so far, the Chow Mein we had during the night was surprisingly delicious, I'm not sure I have ever had it before although I have had similar of course. SW says it is one of the better choices. I received the usual parcel of small assorted goodies from Norfolk. One of the items was a special kitchen magnifying glass with a magnet so it can be stuck on the fridge and then used to read recipes etc. It did cross my mind that you have to be a certain age before receiving such a thing but it will be wonderful for reading labels
. Best friend has lined up some weekend surprises, we usually do something on or near our birthdays but she has lined up two things. I have done various things for her this year so I suppose it is a thank you. I think I have guessed what is lined up for tomorrow but am not sure about Saturday lunchtime when I have been instructed to be hungry ... I have a hunch but will wait and see!
I hope that Mr Rats is having a suitably happy day, the lunch venue looks lovely.
