Tis and That Hat!

Tis the hour before the cake is done
My eyes are droopy and I’m not having fun
My duvet and hot water bottle are calling
From my bed but I must continue ignoring
As the clock ticks towards midnight, I’m straining
To keep awake -for if I don’t there might be a burning!

Et voila!!!


Behind that brown wrapping inside that tin is the Christmas cake – 4 hours later!!!!!

Charlie says: I kick out your hot water bottle and keep your messy bed warm!


NEWSFLASH!! Charlie is about to be "hatted" today by the adorable Sammy and Andy and talented mum!!!

What does that mean bloggie friends? Wait and see.... *cue twilight zone music* LOL!

Have a marzipan Monday everyone!

Charlie, we can't wait to see you in your chapeau!

Mommy is hyped about the cake...checking flight schedules...

I loved your poem! And my cats have been imitating Charlie, only all over me as I've tried to write, lol!

Very curious about the 'hatting'....

Jackee said...

Mmm... cake... :o)

Can't wait to see Charlie "hatted"!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Yay you got your cake made! Does it now soak in rum or brandy? Do you put a marzipan covering and a hard white icing on it? I LOVE cakes like this!

Can't wait to see Charlie hatted! How did the cake come out and why is it in a bag? Did I miss something?

I love the sleeping pose!
So great!!!

I remember my mother doing the brown paper thing with Christmas cakes! Your picture did take me back.

I don't make Christmas cakes, and I can't make Yorkshire pudding the way she used to - seriously delicious, it was, and when I tried after she died it came out like cardboard.

You have been hatted. It looks great. You should go and see.

Yaay, enjoy your cake!

My colleague told me that it's blasphemous that I do not believe in cakes (I don't like cakes, yup!)...

Oh well, but you do! Enjoy!

Brigid said...

You are really organised, hope the cake is a culinary success and what a mystery about Charlie!!

The Monkeys said...

You're better than any old water bottle, Charlie!

We saw how debonair you looked in your hat! So cute!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie - we hope Jenn didn't put her cold feet on you when she came to bed - haha!!.
We're going over to see you in your hat now Charlie - we can't wait - hurry up mum - not in a minute - NOW
We hope your cake is scrummy.

Awaiting the hatting of Charlie!

Lydia Kang said...

4 hours?

As a non-baker, I bow down to you.

Caren Gittleman said...

Ohhhh I love Marzipan! So happy I came over!
I am also happy to meet you! I heard about you from Sammy and Andy, they said to come over and meet you and I am glad that I did!
I am your newest follower!

I want to see inside that bag! I am a lot like Charlie!

Guinevere said...

Tell me about this Christmas cake... I'm intrigued... But does it involve chocolate? :)

BTW, I hate cooking or baking late at night and things never turn out for me tired... so kudos to you for soldiering on! It was nice of Charlie to keep the bed warm for you... what a thoughtful kitty.

Hart Johnson said...

4 hours to bake a cake?! Holy cow--that's dedication! I think Charlie has the idea.

Sammy and Andy said...

What a great poem, Old Kitty!!!!!!!!

We were so happy to "hat" the handsome Charlie....and are happy you liked his look....always remember we love you and Charlie.

Marg said...

We saw Charlie with his hat on and he looks just stunning.
We are coming too to have some of that four hour cake. Do we get to see the finished product?? Get it out of that paper bag.
Take care and have a wonderful week.

fairyhedgehog said...

You're so good making your own cake! I'm going to buy ours.

LTM said...

my kitty Flower becomes extremely cuddly in the cold weather. It's funny b/c all the rest of the time, she'll let you pet her for a few scratches... then CHOMP! :D

yep, she's a nipper. Scratch Charlie for me. Good luck w/the hat~ :o)

Ginger Jasper said...

I can smell the cake from here.. Yummy. We saw you in your hat and it is brilliant.. Hugs GJ x

Donna Hosie said...

You've inspired me. I'm going to start my cake at the weekend.

Talli Roland said...

Christmas cake! And I just blogged about Christmasy food today - how fitting!

Enjoy!

Lynda Young said...

impressive it took 4 hours to make a cake. I bet it's a good cake though and well worth the time :)

notesfromnadir said...

I can't wait to see your cake! I'm mega impressed that you took 4 hours to bake a cake! Now that's dedication! :)

Hi there,
It's me, Penny. I was going to let Gary leave a comment but I changed my mind.
That's a really neato poem. And, I'm wondering if it's okay for me to eat Christmas cake. Probably not.
Anyway, this 'marzipan', does it come from Mars, as in the planet?
Pawsitive wishes, Penny. 'Arf, arf..' Why am I suddenly thinking
Dr. Seuss and 'The Cat in the Hat'? lol

Theresa Milstein said...

As you can see, I'm catching up on your posts. Between a cold and Thanksgiving, I'm behind!

I want to see the cake!

I love your witty, little poems. I've never used a water bottle, but you're tempting me. Sounds like a lovely way to fall asleep.

Ellie said...

Ooo...congratulations on the Christmas cake. Can we all try a bit? LOL.
