Just a quick note to hope that you all had a wonderful day yesterday.
We certainly did, all were relaxed and quiet on the whole. Much fun was had watching Rufus and Ben with their gifts, and the necessary exercise was had dog walking. Although the weather was not great no man, woman or dog got soaked, our timing (although serendipitous) was perfect.
Today the sun is shining and the dogs indicated that they would like a slightly longer walk first thing, just the ticket really, I did have a cheesy supper to walk off.
The news that Rick Parfitt had left us on Christmas Eve was not really a shock, he had been seriously ill for some time. However the news flash, late evening on Christmas Day, that George Michael had joined the far too long list of lost entertainers this year was a great shock. He may not have lived the "perfect lifestyle" but, my goodness he has entertained us well for over 30 years.
I am looking forward to Fran coming home tomorrow, some of her favourite meals are planned and a little baking will happen this afternoon.
I am deliberating as the whether I want any lunch, I only managed a single cream cracker with my tea this morning. I may just have an apple and see how we all feel about a slightly early dinner.
My Christmas Eve cast on was successful and I am about to knit the heel flap on the first sock. The pattern is a simple 5 row repeat, very quick to memorize. I have already picked yarn out for a second pair, a pale green hand dyed yarn that was a gift.
That's all for now, my tummy says it's time for a brew.
