Jeff turned up and did the usual good work so now my garden is pretty presentable, both front and back. That's it now until; after the start of the new term. Very little needs doing in these winter months anyway.
I enjoyed my chat with C, my neighbour over the cul de sac. We have a number of shared experiences and get along pretty well really.
Tuition was great fun. I found an online 'Advent calender' that involved solving riddles which we really enjoyed working through and then we set to to write our own riddles for other Christmas things. The time went so quickly.
There weren't many people at SW - it's not the right time of year for being careful with your diet, is it? We had a good time though and it will be so busy after the new year. At present, it's the lull before the storm.
I've finished my shopping list and was planning to go this morning but, as I have everything for Val's lunch here, I have decided to leave it until tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing Val again and catching up on all the latest news.
After that, the cleaner should come. Today it's the whole house and I have an extra clean on Monday, just downstairs, as a gift to myself.
Apart from that, I need to sort out the extra food things and get it all away and just make sure no little piles of clutter have built up amongst the decorations, candles, etc.
One Rutter carol after another. This is his 'Star Carol', very different to yesterday's gentle lullaby mood.
