Reading time: < 1 minute...

We both had a restless night again with most of the sleeping hours wrestling with bedclothes and windows – we were either too hot or too cold.

I eventually got us around 7.15 and after having a shower, I started to feel a bit better. I can’t seem to shift this cough I’ve developed – sounds like I’m smoking 40-a-day!

We had a lazyish couple of hours and then headed for Mae and Denis’s for lunch. We needn’t have rushed. We had a good journey up there but Mae’s timing for getting lunch ready was, as always, hopeless! In spite of our tongues hanging-out causing a health-and-safety hazard, we still didn’t eat until 2.30ish.

In the interim, we exchanged pressies.

Ok, it was worth the wait- the lamb was fantastic (Shetland sourced – where else?) and there was a choice of three desserts. You could tell I wasn’t well – I only had ONE dessert – the Tesco Christmas Pudding.

We chilled out for a bit afterwards and left around 4.30. Ann drove and we were home by 5.55. Just as well, the gritters were out in force.
