Hope your friend is OK - and his dog - and that all fires are safely out.
Strange day today. I normally surface in time to listen to the concert from Vienna while I potter round the kitchen and had planned to go on a long walk with OH, who retired yesterday, and the two dogs. However we received a text from Possum who spent NY Eve there with friends to ask one of us to go to Thuin to fetch her home as the planned lift was leaving too early for her.
3 hour round trip so a good job we did not over indulge last night and a lovely sunny drive once the mist lifted.
OH ate all his Xmas pud in two goes. Possum and I find it too rich and heavy so we had sticky toffee pudding on Xmas day. However, I like the sound of Xmas pud ice cream so might buy him a bigger one next year and nick the leftovers. I get him an organic one from the English shop but I make our Xmas cake. It is still maturing and will make great snacks to have with coffee now that I have a full time under gardener.
Happy new year everyone and happy gardening.
