Yesterday was very pleasant. I did a bit of clearing up after the family evening but there wasn't a lot to do as I did most of it on Saturday evening.
Then I remembered I hadn't finished the Father Christmouse I was making for a dear little friend so I got that out and done. I'd put a lot of stuff I needed away so had to get it all out again. Never mind!
This time I used a sparkly yarn called 'tinsel' for the fur and I think it's worked really well. I rather fancy making one for myself as well but not for this Christmas.
You can see why it's called tinsel, can't you?
Once that was done and wrapped, I got on with my other knitting, watching DVDs while I did so. Very pleasant and very restful.
Today there's various things happening.
At some point I need to walk to Morrisons - there's always something, isn't there?
Beth's bringing the little friend around, they'll be staying for lunch and we will be giving a few pressies.
The turkey is being delivered. I won't deal with it until tomorrow but my turkey arrangements are usually very simple so won't take long. I'm thinking I might brine it this year as it's a small one and I think I might have a box big enough but for the rest it's just herbs, citrus and onion in the cavity and that's more or less it.
The cleaners are coming in the afternoon.
I must set the telly to record various things over the next four days.
Hopefully, the evening will be quiet and peaceful.
The Christmas music is a jolly carol, much enjoyed form childhood onward. As children, we had a sort of running competition to see if we could do each line of the chorus in one breath. Once I was into choral singing, I enjoyed singing the underlying alto part.
This is a version sung by King's - Ding dong, merrily on high.
