Thursday 12th NovemberYes in the picture Spider appears to be in control, on the highest spot etc. Smudge however has different plans, he is frequently displacing Spider from his own food, sorry Spider but that is a sign of dominance. The black and white fur ball also always appears when I am having quiet time with Spider. Yes Spider was the first so he holds a special place in my heart. Smudge, well he has some work to do, like not pouncing on me in the middle of the night.
A bit like my class really there are some children who have my respect and adoration and then there are others that make me want to bash my head against a wall very hard. Thank goodness I do boxing and can let the frustration out that way or through mowing the lawn with a push mower which I did yesterday.
Last night I was cooking and the boys see me open fridge, the frypan, spinach. Of course they think eggs, almost like teasing them really as they will have to wait till tomorrow when the real thing happens. The recipe is spinach and shallot, cook with small amount sesame oil and add egg when the spinach is wilted. Turn and cook other side and serve on bread with tahini.
I will be glad to escape to the coast in under 10 days, better get these reports done!!!!!!!!!!!!
