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.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
