Firstly may I thank everyone for their good wishes after my recent yucky spell. Apart from my eyes I am much better now and really looking forward to Christmas.
Because of the hiatus we haven’t bought a proper Christmas tree this year – we lashed out £15 on an artificial tree. It’s excellent quality for the price. Six feet tall and with plenty of realistic branches- only the scent and irregularity of the branches are missing.
It even dropped some ‘needles’ while being erected!
We decided to spare Emma Gertrude for another year and are having lamb and chicken for Christmas Day. Richard is making the gravy and he had a practice run yesterday – it’s excellent stuff.
We have yet to do the shopping and Jo is still working until Thursday but at least we are getting into the Christmas spirit.
I hope you all have a super time and our very best wishes to you all.
This is what I needed to see today.
