It's mild, dull - same as the last few days, in fact. I'm hopeful that it will be fine for my drive down to Runwell as today is Booster Day. I'm relieved to be having it at last and very glad I booked it some weeks ago. By the sound of it, I'd not stand a chance of getting an appointment right now and there is no way I would queue for up to four hours for a so-called 'walk in' vaccination. Mind you, I suppose i could take one of my fold up chairs with me!!
Anyway - I don't have to. It really is an easy drive and, if I allow three quarters of an hour, that should be more than enough time.
My Christmas calendar has got a bit jumbled up. For today, it says 'make mince pies; but I did that Sunday and yesterday - yes I made more and they are now in the freezer until needed. Plenty for all occasions.
Thank you to all of you who explained your pastry methods. It's a shame I hardly even have pasty as it doesn't work terribly happily with losing or maintaining weight because I'd like to try all your ways. Maybe I will from time to time, just for fun!
However, yesterday I didn't do 'Santa bunting and Blue room' so I could do that when I get home from Runwell, assuming I feel OK - and I am assuming I will be fine. If not, it's the sort of thing I can do in dribs and drabs, should that be necessary.
Circuit training was really good yesterday, as was tuition. There's another of the former next week but the latter has now finished until Jan 3rd. Must look up some new resources in the meanwhile.
A friend posted this on Facebook yesterday and it made me laugh so much I asked if I could copy it here. I think the only one that doesn't resonate with me is the very last one.
How many of these could apply to you?
Today's Advent music is 'The Angel Gabriel', that old Basque carol about the Annunciation in an old arrangement by Edgar Pettman - the version everyone knows.
Lovely scrunchy harmonies and a beautiful melody - what more can one wish for?
