Well, well, well, after days of leaden skies the promise of sunshine thru the velvet curtains turned the whole room rosy pink. Mornings like these make my world so much better. Milo and Morgan love the sun and try to hang out in the sunniest spot as much as they can; usually upside down on the sofa.

My son has come back from Japan and brought his lovely girlfriend Chantal for lunch. I made us some smoked salmon sandwiches and salad. I took my eye off the salmon for two seconds and Morgan was up on the counter and made off with a slice of salmon. She was told off and pushed out the kitchen door into the garden where she sat for the longest time licking her cheeks. The scrubby little cat! One minute she’s sleeping, the next minute she’s pilfering our lunch. She’s a bit overweight and so on a diet and hating everybody these days.

My children and I had a lovely chat and spent a good hour looking thru the baby Jonathan photo albums. Jonathan wasn’t too pleased at the idea at first, but the girls ganged up and majority won. After a while he really enjoyed seeing the old photos. He asked me if he ever wore any clothes as a baby…lol. There were a good number of photos of naked baby Jon and baby Kers on the beach or in the garden in the summer time. What can I say…they were very European babies. 😀 Chloe and Chantal decided that I had the best clothes in the 80s and now they want to hunt similar down and wear them. C especially loved my bathing suits, my high-waisted jeans and a one piece safari jumpsuit, which I wore to death. I think it was Rodier and I loved it too.

The sun shone golden for most of the week, but it’s that weak winter sun which never really warms much, and that means the temperature has dropped. I suppose it’s dropped all over the continent because I can see the jet stream dipping way low on the environment maps. Morgan hates the cold and so I didn’t leave her out for long…no matter how bad she is I’ll always love her mushy little face.

Hope your weekend was a lovely and cozy one. Time to check out some weekend movies and have a first open fire in the fireplace I think. 😀

    It looks like a cozy time in your home with the kids and the cat and the sunshine. It’s fun to look back at baby and childhood photos although I don’t think I’d go back to 80’s clothing styles. 🙂 We’re getting some snow here but it will change to a cold rain later. Have a great week.

      I know what you mean about the 80’s clothing style, but the things the girls were picking out were quite contemporary and timeless. (except the high-waisted jeans…no idea what that was all about…lol)

    Baby photos brought out for the girlfriend’s amusement! That explains the grumpy look, LOL!

      He does, doesn’t he? I love his sleekness. We had such a nice time. We really like Jon’s girl. 😀

    Milo and Morgan are so cute and cuddly looking. How funny about Milo stealing the salmon. Smart cat. – It looked like such a pleasant afternoon. So happy your son and his girlfriend visited and you all had such a nice time.

      Oh bad cat! Lol. Morgan has a habit these days of jumping up on the kitchen counters and having an explore. Oh well, makes me keep the kitchen tidy at all times and that’s nice for me to have a clean kitchen. 😀

    oh i am so happy to hear your adorable kits are naughty too … i think little Annie believes i know only one word: NO she has the shortest memory of any cat we’ve ever had and an apparent loathing of scratching posts … i wish i would remember the 80s and its styles fondly … i can’t/dont .. but then i didnt live in Europe ..

      Oh mine are so bad when they want to be! So BAD! They have a very selective memory; only when ti suits them. They also hate the scratching post, but love a sort of cardboard box you can buy at the pet shop/Wal-mart for about $5. It’s corrugated cardboard cut on an angle so the honeycomb is the face, and it comes with a little cat nip to sprinkle into the honeycomb. They scratch away, roll around on it, sit on it for hours.

      It was a good one. Spinach, baby romaine, avocado, and exquisite balsamic vinegar. 😀
