No Scavenger Hunt this week, so I thought I'd do a quick review of the last seven days instead.
- A week of freebies! A stranger gave me a voucher for a free drink in M&S; I had enough points on my Boots card to get some very nice Ted Baker smelly things; Tesco's clubcard voucher exchange meant that we're getting a free meal for two at Bella Pasta; and my Sainsbury Nectar points got me £17.50 worth of Amazon vouchers! Hurrah!
- I got a lovely card from my Mum in law about Ben.
- I got a lovely e-card from Laurie at Mehitabel Days which brightened my day.
- I got my act together and entered some cat photos in the local animal shelter's cat photo competition.
- We went to Stratford.
- We went to Warwick Arts Centre and saw John Mayall and Oli Brown in concert.
- I went for a 4.5 mile walk yesterday to fetch a newspaper (don't ask why, it seemed like a good idea at the time).
- We saw the sweeeeetest baby rabbits, one little grey one did everything but stand on his head and do a cartwheel in his efforts to be noticed and taken home.
- I saw two brilliant photo exhibitions by Tom Hunter.
- I also went to work but let's not talk about that. I took in a Christmas tree that we're going to decorate and enter for the Christmas Tree Festival at St Mary's Church (just across the road from us - has a very nice coffee bar and second hand bookshop!). Because our company is all about reproducing images and document management I took some photos of Christmas decorations and we printed them off to hang on the tree, clever eh?!?
- Mrs P went to the vets for a thyroid check. This was fine, and apparently her kidneys have never been better too. This good news didn't stop Mrs P from trying to go to the toilet on the vet whilst yelling loudly at her. The vet thinks Mrs P is breathing too fast (I think she was angry at the vet!) and is also concerned that she's lost weight (I think she doesn't like renal food so have been trying to feed her up with biscuits that Posky must not know exist!). Anyway, the vet wants her to go in and spend a few hours there on Tuesday so they can check her breathing again. She also doesn't want her to be fed beforehand in case they need to sedate her. Hmmmm...
And finally... a few photos from Stratford. The first two are inside the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, love the way they've kept the Art Deco style along with the new. The third is the cafe seating area outside the theatre, I just like the mood it evokes. The last is the Stratford skyline with Shakespeare's statue in the Bancroft Gardens and the RST tower. Am loving that seagull!
