new year's eve

December 31, 2008

Biff%20near%20bag.jpgBiff sits watching intently as I make carrot and butterbean soup and whip up a chocolate soufflé at 2.30am. He is probably thinking: 'why can't my owner keep more conventional hours?'

'I have to do this now,' I explain. 'As tomorrow is New Year's Eve and our friends are coming to dinner. I need to get organised.'

He leans his head to one side, fixes me with his intelligent jet button eyes, and I swear to god he can understand what I am saying.

Before I head off to cook the main course and do some 'critical cleaning' - tempting though it is just to dim the lights to hide the dust and muddy paw-prints when my guests arrive- I'd like to wish everyone HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009!

A Happy New year to you too, Mimi. I hope you will sell many articles to newspapers for us to read; may your love-life be perfect as well.

Hey bonne annee. Hope you get all the wonderful things you deserve in 2009. I have a sneaking suspicion it's all going to be quite fantastic for us. Smile, x

By the look on his face he is probably dreaming of getting stuck into that chocolate gateaux!
