Christmas Week

Christmas Week
....or should that read Christmas weak?

Sunday – Cleaned the house
Monday – Baked
Tuesday – Shopped
Wednesday – More baking
Thursday (Christmas Eve) – Butchers; peel vegetables; begin cookathon
Friday (Christmas Day) – Check if on Santa’s Good Boys list; finish cookathon; eat dinner; watch the Queen (obligatory in our house if one wants to keep in with partner-who-drinks-tea); moan at how few decent programmes are on TV these days (a national pastime enjoyed by us all); light the log fire; begin reading Christmas presents (well they are book shaped so what else could they be?).
Saturday (Boxing Day) – Food-loving-daughter and Son-in-law-who cooks come for the day.
Sunday – Daughter-who-takes-photos and her partner (Friend-who-loves-Otters) arrive for a couple of days.

Cars tiptoe past on the main road in the early morning light of the sodium lamp.
So today we only have to venture as far as the butchers – a quarter of a mile – which pleases me no end because the last two days of hail have left sheets of frozen hail and ice everywhere. The pavements are treacherous and the side roads almost impassable. There are signs this morning that it may be beginning to thaw but more snow and hail is forecast.

May not get around to blogging tomorrow so I shall wish you all the very best – enjoy your day and if you have to travel in bad weather, take care and may your God go with you.


  1. 'May your god do with you'....shades of Dave Allen coming in there...Are you similarly minus one digit, I wonder?! lol :)

  2. Have a good time, all your issue coming by you should just put your feet up and relax. Thought that was the point of chidren.

  3. Bless your days ahead! Be cautious walking in the freezy steps outside your door. Be warm and content in the midst of loving family. And may your heart receive a gift of wonder this Christmas, sweet friend.

    Love to you and yours.
    ♥ Heather

  6. Please be SAFE! Hope you enjoy your Christmas Day! That picture looks torturous! Stoke up the fireplace and enjoy the warmth. Snuggle and hug your loved ones! Merry Christmas my friend!

  7. Happy Christmas to you and Jo and Richard! We hope you have a wonderful weekend, with all the family comings and goings. Hope the weather doesn't cause any driving problems for anyone. We wil hope not.

    In the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas!
