I took Nero to the Cattery - you can tell from his expression that he was not amused




Then on to London to see Bill Baily in "Tinselworm"





With a short stop at the Darwin Exhibition - A religious experience for me and



This is the ceiling at the Gielgud - where Bill opened with
"Thank God for Darwin..."
"..............",
"... OK Pinter, I now have your level..."

Reading FC V Cardiff: Cardiff score in the 89th minute, fans invade pitch

but in the last minute of extra time the Reading Goalkeeper scores the equaliser,
players jump on goalie!

For Xmas eve we had a Polish Wigilia - not quite managing all 12 proposed dishes - but we made Bigos, Barszcz (with uszka) and Compote. The 3kg carp in aspic was reserved "for next year".
Thank you to Klara for the recipes and guidance. Technically as it is a "Black Fast" we should have saved the Bigos until Boxing day!



The PIERNIKCZKI never really softened up - even though they were made 3 weeks in advance as recommended...
