We spent part of the morning continuing to pack. It all seems to fit (but the kitchen sink was a bit of a problem!!) – so we should get away with being under the weight limits for BA.
Job done! We’re all packed apart from a few last minute bits and pieces.
We’re ahead of schedule, so we watched Ice Age 3 on blu-ray DVD. Not a bad film but perhaps not as good a story-as ‘1’ and ‘2’, but the animation was stunning – surely the cutting edge of what is currently possible – we think we could see every hair on the mammoths! Brilliant!!!
We drove down to town to go to the 6.30 performance of the Salvation Army Christmas Carol Concert. Snow…carol singing…Salvation Army Brass band – lovely!!! It doesn’t get more christmassy than this!!!
David and Val were there and so were Val’s Mum and Dad, Rose and Mike. Jo, Janet, Helen and Frank were also there and we also saw Joan and the guy who runs Windmill pet Supplies.
It was as usual, a great event. Good music, a great choir, and some well placed and well-thought-out religious messages. The event finished at around 7.45 and we took a slow and very careful drive back home because of the icy conditions. We then went round to David and Val’s for toast (done the proper way, over an open fire) – a great end to a productive and enjoyable day!!!
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’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
