Going out for a lovely lunch at an excellent local restaurant, invited by the committee of an association of which we’re members, a thankyou to my husband for being treasurer and membership secretary for 6 years.

It was lovely, ATS.

Smoked salmon with artichoke, mesclun and a lovely dressing (mine was minus the smoked salmon as I hate it.)

Guineafowl served on cabbage, with a delicious sauce, which the chef later said contained foie gras, cognac and white port

Tout chocolat - so delicious!

A glass of bio wine.

€21, and a real bargain for the standard of food and service, although we were guests.

My husband was presented with a book of photos taken in Paris (he also ran the photo club and still runs the annual photo competition), and I received a lovely ipad holder-upper, made by the vice-president in a gorgeous fabric, and I also received a lovely bouquet of flowers.

It was a superb treat and in excellent company.

A local cat, who kept coming in our garden, has decided we’re the mugs who will spoil her rotten. She entered the house and made it clear she wasn’t leaving. She’s eaten three bowls of food this evening and is now sleeping on a unit in the utility room, next to the central heating unit.

She’s a little sweetie but our own difficult older cat is not happy but, after having to suffer the indignity of two chickens living in the house for a couple of months, she’s getting a bit more relaxed - the growling and hissing is becoming all show and no knickers. I’m hoping one lives more upstairs (cause she sleeps a lot) while the younger one lives downstairs. Her presence is keeping the older cat more alert.

She’s probably very young, all skin and bones and I think somethings winged her hip/back leg - unfortunately she can jump up onto the kitchen worktop all too easily. I doubt if she’s been sterilised. We’ll take her to the vet to see, first, if she’s been chipped and belongs to someone. If not, we’ll ask the vet for a full ‘service’ check as she’ll be living with us!

In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this - Terry Pratchett
