Morning all. -5°, big frost.

Had a bad night. Sore throat, nose running down throat made me cough. I've just got up, OH fed the horses.

OH lost his car key, ordered new key yesterday at vast expense. When he fed the horses he put on an ancient anorak that he hadn't worn for a bit and keys were in the pocket. ???  On Christmas Eve son found OH's keys among the stockings that the children had laid out in the inglenook.

I hope you've all had a good Christmas. Thank you for your Christmas wish, aym.

It was mild, damp, grey with some rain over Christmas. Colder today with sun and a frost this morning.

Hope naughty lab didn't have a tummy upset!

Hope Fairy's daughter's tooth isn't being too painful. Would have to happen at Christmas.

Hope Dove's washing machine can be repaired quickly.

Been to SM. It was lunch hour so not packed.

Just had a smoked salmon sandwich

On Thursday I bought 2 sliced loaves, a round loaf and a couple of baguettes. On Saturday DIL bought 10 baguettes. I got a loaf out of the freezer on Sunday and other DIL bought 6 baguettes for brekkies on Monday morning. All gone. There were 6 packets of butter in the fridge, none now. I bought 6 litres of milk on Thursday, already had 3L. 2 daughters brought 4 more L each. That's all gone too.

Morning all.

After all the food shopping I did last week and we still have smoked salmon and mince pies, we have to go to the SM. Run out of milk, bread and butter.

Lovely, Joyce, just the thing to brighten up a day in mid winter.

Hello all. I hope you had good days yesterday.

Family all gone, 17 of them, peace reigns! Son 1 had to come back though, as he'd left his new pullover in the kitchen and I found various things, including presents, belonging to the children. Son 1 is spending tonight with daughter 2 and tomorrow night with daughter 1 so he will deliver everything, including leftovers for daughter 2's chickens (which she'd left on the garden table).

We had a lovely time, grandchildren were delightful, no one fought. Last night all the women watched "Call the Midwife" and all the men sat in the kitchen eating smoking salmon and boozing. I'm now shattered! Feet and joints ache.

Washing machine and tumble dryer are busy.

Looking forward to going to our cottage in January for peace and quiet!

We are going on holiday afterwards. Going to our Norfolk cottage on 6th January for peace and quiet.

Glad the man has been dealt with who drove the lorry in Berlin. Sounds a hard thing to say, but he has ruined the lives of the people he killed and their families. That sort of fanatical person would do it again. The taxpayers would pay for him to be kept in prison and he would probably prefer to die than be in prison anyway.

Morning all.

Glad your daughter and baby got home safely and hope the nightmare journey will soon be a distant memory, Lily P.

Daughter 1 is arriving this afternoon with SIL and their 3 little boys. Then Son 1 is arriving late tonight with DIL and their 2 little girls. He's working today and they live 5 hours away. The other son and daughter and 4 grandchildren are coming for lunch tomorrow.

I must get a move on, the decorations aren't all up yet and there is cooking to do.
