Absolutely nothing of any interest happened this week . It rained , sometimes the sun shone . The house didn't fall down and we ate omniverously , but in moderation . I even noticed in time that my favourite mug's handle was cracked across and avoided a lapful of tea .So all I've got to show you is three cats and a gadget .
First this nifty and rather beautiful wooden bread slicer ( c. 1920s ) which I coveted the moment I saw it in a small cabinet in the corner of an old church . Once used by a small religious community in Leiden , I feel it would be a great success these days in foodie circles , given the interest in good bread .
And , because there are times when I still miss having one .... three very fine cats .
This one seemed to want to be a cheerleader
This one was carved by Johan Coenraad Altorf in 1939 as part of a wall panel for a Den Haag board room
And this one was added by Middle Daughter to a card she sent a few days ago and echoes my sentiments precisely
Oh yes , and I had a birthday .
