No Time To Lose

Christmas is almost upon us – but there's still time to buy a splendid mounted print, some colourful cards, an award-winning book or a volume featuring a cat who'll never be forgotten. Contact me. You'll be sorry if you leave it too late.

Findon Hall in Culbokie on Saturday was to have been my final market before The Big Day, but two last-minute opportunities have presented themselves. Neither are likely to make big bucks but you never know.

If you're in Fortrose on Sunday, head to the academy where booksellers and other stallholders will take advantage of the afternoon jazz concert there. Then on Monday afternoon I'll be part of North Kessock Primary School's Christmas Fayre – so let's hope the pupils are big spenders.

Moggy Update: Matchgirl's return from an extended Shetland trip won't be a moment too soon. Willow refuses to observe good hygiene by feigning deafness and strolling around the kitchen worktops; Pandora wants to spend all day lurking beneath the bird feeders; Maia is stand-offish despite regular food and unobtrusive medication and clearly pining for her Number One Carer. The sook.

Yet all three are happy to take more than their fair share of the bed at night, where I seem to have less space than when Matchgirl's home. Unappreciated, that's me.

I appreciate you, dear! And I appreciate that you're looking after two very troublesome kittens and one sulky big cat all on your own. I'll be home to share the trials and tribulations soon. xxx
