Well, fancy that - and you're a December baby too - I take it your parents were celebrating the arrival of spring

Hello folks - I'm back from Ma's Christmas Party at the Lovely Home  - so funny, she had one glass of wine, then it was hard to get her to drink anything else in case it had alcohol in it - she had a glass of sparkling apple and melon juice but she was convinced it was alcoholic

There was loads of amazing food - think the chef overcatered a tad and so many of the residents were just excited and chatting so they didn't eat much - I got a plateful of food for Ma and some for me and ended up eating most of both as Ma only wanted a few crisps and a tiny cocktail quiche. 

By the time I got home I was tired and didn't feel like eating.  I've had a doze on the sofa, but still think I'll get an early night - but first I'll have a look to see what's been going on here

Daffodils are sprouting too early!

They probably pay an advertising company to 'raise their profile'  - said advertising company will then pay someone to find websites/message boards etc where they can plug the name
