With Christmas Day festivities, great company and good food, behind us; Boxing Day football over and more turkey eaten, its time to turn our thoughts to the New Year and what to do………..

Right at this moment, the only thing I want to do is to have a cup of tea and to retrieve Barney T Rubble from under the bed, where he’s been hiding since the visit from the man from the electricity board, first thing this morning! Coming to read the meter, this sweet man was met with a chorus of Molly and Barney, barking; Molly at his feet and Barney from the safety of the house! I’ve had to then sit down and explain to Barney, that, to be a guard dog, barking from a ‘safe, secret location’, doesn’t really work – and hiding under the bed with back end hanging out isn’t going to help either!( I know: I’ve tried it)…..

Anyway, today will be about turkey (as in, avoiding eating it); reading a bit more, (two books yesterday!); possibly doing some ironing – possibly – and sending some info off to people who’ve enquired about their summer holidays next year……

Ho ho ho! All good stuff – AND I get to stay in my PJs for another day………….x
