That was Christmas

Its over and gone. As usual all the decorations are packed away. Christmas will never be the same for us again.

Christmas Eve was a very bad time for me in more ways than one, DB spoke to our GP she has upped all my medication.

We went to DD2 for lunch on Christmas day, DGD had cooked, it was very nice and we came home with enough turkey for 2 suppers. We did drink a toast to Nicholas before we ate lunch.

Yesterday we did nothing. Late up, no lunch but ate supper early and then watch some TV and some programmes we recorded earlier.

This morning we set to and put all the decorations away, boxes had got shoved in various places when we moved, so now I know where they all are.

 DB has started to sink a drainage trench behind the coal shed to make a soak away. Hopefully it will stop the water running into the coal shed a wetting the coal. The logs are on half a pallet, so up out of any water.

The situation in Yorkshire and Lancashire is horrendous, even more people flooded and huge power cuts as well. I guess the river in Haddington will be in flood as well.

This is the blanket I knitted, this is just one set of stripes there are 4 more down the back of the settee, so its quite big. I have used it. I fell asleep on the settee yesterday afternoon and DB pulled it over me, very cosy.

Its a bright morning, just coming up to noon the sun has broken through, no idea how long it will last though. Its not cold outside. 

We are having cold meat, salad and jacket spuds tonight for supper. DB requested bread and cheese for lunch. No idea about dessert, although I do have 2 creme brulee in the fridge.
