|I had to move my birdies to the top of the tree to stop Miss Oswin from getting them!|
Those first days in the new year are always a bit strange aren't they. You get rid of the Christmas decorations (will be doing that as soon as this is posted) and the house looks bare. Nowhere near as fun and cosy as it did when the decorations were in place. Mind you, I have enough stuff to take its place and it will at least be easier to protect my tree ornaments. Miss Oswin is quite a good young pussycat, but she does love my birds. Can't imagine why really, but there you go.
Another thing of course getting back to work. Now, I already worked this year. I worked New Year's Eve into New Year's Day (awful, absolutely awful and NOT to be repeated. EVER!!!) and on New Year's Day itself. But today is the first day the schools will be back and all the people will go back to work. Which means, business as usual.
Oh, by the way: I have just heard about the first film I want to see in the cinema. It is (most likely) a Swedish production of a book I read in Norwegian (translated from Swedish) and I laughed and cried and absolutely adored it. Hopefully the film will be equally as good.
