Well here I am sitting here at 5pm on Christmas Day evening, sitting in front of the fire, full to the gills and ever so contented. Santa was good to all of us, we all did very well, and the kids were happy with what they received.
The meal was good, as was the company. I must say though its a lot of work for a short period of time.
Dd brought her cat to stay with us while she was staying with us. Now Olive isn't familiar with dogs, and isn't that keen of them it seems. When she saw Molly she arched her back, all the hair stood on end, she started to hiss and swatted at Molly, then disappeared under the bed for the rest of the day. Molly of course started to howl, but I am pleased to say she has since lost interest in her.
This is a new bird to me that came to feed the other day, I think it is a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. Not sure if it is a male or a female, as the male only has its "ruby crown" during mating season. Pretty little bird though. The light was really bad as well that day, so this is my best photo.
