Happy New Year!

Basil and Parsley have declined to come up with their own resolutions, so I have decided to do it for them. Accompanied by a picture of them each trying to get into the festive spirit. We had to do away with the decorations this year, as the boys seemed to think that Christmas trees are for fighting with, rather than looking at.

- Stop jabbing mummy in the face at 5 o'clock in the morning just to get attention.
- Stop trying to eat every piece of food I see, regardless of who's dinner it actually is.

- Try to spend slightly less time yelling at the top of my lungs for no particular reason, especially whilst all the humans are still asleep.
- Stop trying to jump bodily into the fridge every single time someone opens the door.

We've had an excellent Christmas. B&P enjoyed their second roadtrip of the year, this time to Oxfordshire. There, they had a wonderful time scampering up and down stairs (a new experience), and aside from an awkward moment where they started stalking a 10-month-old nephew like he was prey, they generally charmed the family. Photos to follow I hope.

In other news, Basil has actually learned to fetch. No, really. A video to follow if we can catch him at it. B&P have an excellent knack of stopping whatever cute/amusing/stupid thing they're doing as soon as I reach for the camera - saboteurs! All I've been able to capture lately is...

Parsley, obviously really impressed with me taking his picture at dinnertime:

Basil, looking (to be honest), a little bit fat:
