Wear 364: Fourteen Cats in Hats

It's most way through January already! Pair-of-shoes Fourteen always seem out of a Dr Suess book to me so where better to wear them than on a post that goes through my book challenge achievements (or lack of) for last year. Most of you will want to skip straight through to the pictures—sometimes I think I blog just so I will remember things later. That is definitely the case here! Before I start: these shoes were bought for me by Mr Earwig, sight unseen. His taste is not bad for a man who gravitates towards track suit pants.

My absence from the world of blogging for the last quarter of last year was half to do with craziness and half with laziness. Here is some of the craziness. I had told you that I was planning a special trip for Mr Earwig's milestone birthday celebrations.

This is what happened. I'll try and make it sweet and short. It came in two stages: The Reveal (whereby his long anxious wait to see what he would be doing was slowly ended) and The Real Thing (whereby what he waited for for so long, went by in a jiffy).

The day before his birthday he received a Facebook message from a friend telling him he was going, in a week's time, to Geneva, but in order to find out what happens when he gets there he had to check the dogs.
