(no subject)

The cat returned yesterday morning - I could hear him meowing from his cat box even before I opened the door. He spent most of the rest of the day either purring and begging for attention, or meowing imperiously as he found something that wasn't quite the same in the house since he'd left ;)

We didn't spend all day tending to his nibs though - we headed into town in the afternoon to spend some of our Christmas loot. J's Gran had given us some cash each, so J bought some CDs and I got a book about paintings "What Great Paintings Say: From the Bayeux Tapestry to Diego Rivera" by Rose-Marie & Rainer Hagen (it's a quite large collection of essays about particular paintings, explaining some of the meanings behind particular bits of the painting) and a small mirror with a Mackintosh design on the cover. I also bought a book in Waterstones with the last of my tokens from my birthday/leaving work ("Storm Front" by Jim Butcher) but I'm saving the ones I got for Christmas until I've not got quite such a queue infront of me to read - I'm currently half-way through 2 non-fiction books and a fiction one, and I've 3 books out of the library that I need to get to soon.

In the evening we watched more Doctor Who - Jo gave us the DVD set for Christmas - J's been watching each episode then I've joined him to re-watch it with the commentary on.

I think we need to be a little less lazy today, but as it's nearly noon and nothing much has happened yet I'm thinking we'll just have to be a lot less lazy tomorrow ;)
