Panic is on.

 Yesterday I lost our Christmas cake!!
 John went off to deliver presents to our son and grandson and was told what to take and what not to take! I dont think he listened and he took our cake as well, it wasnt wrapped so how???
I was not home when this happened, I was grocery shopping and getting mail and papers.
I searched high and low yesterday for it (he was fishing!) and he denied all knowledge of it (He did have to go to a funeral after delivering them but still...)
We couldnt contact the son until this morning after I had gone into total tired and cross mode, we do now have it here and I dont have to bake another one, thank goodness.
I spent all day yesterday, going into the market, doing 3 loads of washing and baking for 6 hours (biscuits this time).
I needed to calm my fury so finally totally exhausted, I sat and drew crazy birds and other things in my small sketchbook and so these are the result.
We head over to Kangaroo Island on Wednesday so I have to have all presents delivered, have the house relatively clean for the house sitter.
 The cat who is due to go into the cattery vomited all over the place this morning so I just hope he is alright.
Tomorrow we go to Adelaide to deliver some presents, more on Tuesday so I have to statt thinking of packing.
We had a lovely walk on the beach this morning, and suddenly it is raining again, we have had a few showers over the last few days, not amounting to much but at least the garden doesnt need hosing.
I hope to get the odd blog post done while we are away, say safe and cheerful in the lead up to this stressful time of the year.
Thinking of all those in the US over this dreadful time.

Lol.... I can imagine your frustration/fury over the cake gone walk-about. Glad it's back safe and sound. I feel quite exhausted at the thought of all your baking but you will be off on holiday soon. Hope that means you can put your feet up!

I am so glad you got your cake back, I think there would have been murder done in this house over a catastrophe like that!!! Have a wonderful and relaxing time on the Island, enjoy Christmas to the full and I look forward to more blogging when you return. Cheers

Anyway you did some good drawings while you were cranky! Have a nice holiday and enjoy the Christmas season. The adventures of the cake are funny of course.
