Well, today I got stuff done and it looks like I'm going to have Christmas in the bag by weekend! I have been known to still be traipsing round the shops on Christmas Eve in previous years, but not this time, thank goodness.
One of my jobs today was to go to The Post Office and get my Christmas cards sent off. As a matter of interest I post cards to Ireland, Wales, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and France as well as some much closer to home.
Anyway, in and amongst my errands I made time for a coffee in a favourite coffee shop at lunchtime and this was the view (Instagram image) I had as I sipped my latte and read Sunday's paper with it. Yes, last Sunday's paper. The Bear Cafe doesn't provide daily newspapers only weekend ones for its customers. No problem there for me, I prefer a Sunday paper, there's always more in them. The view was a bit dreary, it's very cold and very wet in these parts just now.
This afternoon I watched George's school Christmas play. It was called Pirates of the Curry Bean, not exactly Christmassy but it was funny and entertaining. 8 year old George was a sailor in it, he looked really cute. Last week I watched Nicholas and Charlie in their concerts too. I also attended a Police Carol Concert with Caroline last week. That was a good night, the singing was loud and enthusiastic accompanied by the Police Brass Band. What more can one ask? That's it for another year now though.
