Mum is acquiring an interesting pile of gifts from her friends. Last night Josie was rootling through them and declared, "This one is for us" and started opening it. Mum grabbed it off her and took it away. Josie was right it turns out. She doesn't read so well but she said there was a distinct odour of pet shop on it. It's from our friend Poppy who may be a dog but shows a fine appreciation of cats.

We don't know what it is yet. Mum was too fast.

Mum was training again yesterday. I love to know what she tells them about. People make me laugh.

"It was Assertiveness" mum told me.

"What's that?" I wanted to know.

"It's about being able to calmly and confidently express your own opinions..."

"I should so run that course" I said.

"...while respecting the rights of others to do the same."

There was an awkward pause.

"Is it Chrsitmas yet?" I asked to change the subject.

"Not long now."

I purred. I can't wait to see what's in our presents.

Respecting others? What's that about?

Mom is so impatient she couldn't wait to give us our presents, so we've gotten them already. Some hits, some misses, but a pretty good haul nonetheless. We don't care very much when it comes, so long as the pressies keep rolling in . . .
