Ambush situation

Herbie has found the ideal spot to lie in wait for Father Christmas, it took a great deal of planning, some serious wriggling and a lot of  sneakyness to get to the sweet spot.
Then even more work to get him out.
There is now a barrier.
Hopefully it is impregnable.

Look at that face, butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.

My shopping trip was not a total failure, but there is still no Angel. I am thinking of a charity shop trawl for a Barbie doll to bling up myself.
I see that Lidl are bringing back their 29p bags of veg, I will be buying some of those.
Today should be awful, strong wind and driving rain. The first walk was not too bad although a recycling bin lid did go bowling down the road. There was far too much traffic to try to get it to the side.

Dinner last night was a very lazy scrambled eggs on toast, a dollop of brown sauce and it went down well. Tonight it will be cottage pie with a root veg topping.

I have the last bit of quilting to do on L's quilt and then will be making and applying the binding. That can then go off on Monday.
Tomorrow,weather permitting, I am off to Llandeilo. I need wadding for 2 more quilts.

There is one last Christmas decoration to go up, that is the pom pom garland in Fran's room, the SO has been absolutely heroic and completed the house with no help whatsoever from me.

Rufus and Herbie enjoyed their walk, it was calm and steady. I did expect some bouncing but their behaviour was exemplary.

On that note I am off to get a cuppa and ready myself for today's walk.
