It's catblogging day again!
Inspired by Lori, I posted this pic of Ollie in the Christmas wrapping paper. Just like a child he was more interested in the wrappings than in the gifts themselves.

Yesterday was busy! we had a couple of new people to our weekly "Get into Reading" group and a really enjoyable session discussing short stories on the theme of childhood, from Sylvia Plath and Joyce Cary. I had a headache I couldn't shake, so went for a walk around West Kirby at lunch time.

In the evening the Coven met for drinks at our local. We had a lot of fun and a lot of wine!! We ended up talking about book groups and may try to start one in the village - there are other groups but there are enough of us to start our own. Any suggestions for books we might try? I have a lot of ideas from the groups I run at work but reccomendations are always welcome. I have often toyed with the idea of an online reading group. T and I have been reading "Northanger Abbey" together and are soon moving on to "Far from the madding crowd". It's fun to talk about what you're reading and get other peoples insight and opinions. What do you think?

What a lovely photo; Manda's cat manages to sniff out his own presents and also loves ripping up the paper. The online book reading is a nice idea...though I must admit my "reading" at the moment is done with CD books.

LOL isn't it amazing how cats love paper and string and make a B line for them whenever they are around. Ollie looks very smug.

I answered your post about the Book Group two posts ago, sorry, I read them all then got confused, which isnt difficult to do to me LOL.
