Christmas Eve - and at work! I'm as up-to-date as I can be, and waiting on other people with regard to "stuff" but as that's not going to happen, here I am!
Although it is fundamentally Christmas I am afraid I'm not feeling overly festive, mainly because all the tentative plans we had made have been thwarted because of a particularly virulent strain of something flu-like which has wiped out so many people - extreme tiredness, snotty and coughing in extremis. It's a weird one. However, let's face facts, I have been a bit "bah-humbug" about a lot of things in the past six months, so I'm just hamming it up even more so - just call me Ebenezer!
No - I jest! Fortunately, over the weekend Paul and I managed to do some Christmas shopping and have also stocked up on wine and nibbles. However, we are going to try and avoid consuming the 7000 calories (30 kilojoules) that the average person apparently scoffs on Christmas Day! Good grief - that would necessitate a ruddy-long walk on Boxing Day wouldn't it?*!
The house is as decorated as it gets - because it is so small we only ever 'dress' the windows. But as you can see, I started off in the greenhouse initially and created a digital 'card' for distribution. If I can't actually sow any seeds then I have to do something to potter about whilst listening to BBC Sounds! But take note - we will be in the garden tomorrow morning, digging up some parsnips for Christmas dinner, so at least one vegetable item will be home-grown at least!
