A bright but windy morning

It seems to be getting quite blustery out. We did not get out of bed until after 9.30 am, so a late start,both of us feeling shattered after yesterday.

Lunch was wonderful as usual, cooked by my Granddaughter, she likes cooking. We had a cup of tea before girding our loins and going to my Grandsons. He and his partner were entertaining the extended family, the noise level was such that he could not hear us ringing for the gate to be opened so we could drive in. We had a cup of tea and left DD2 and DGD there and came home.............the peace was wonderful.

Spent the evening slobbing in front of the TV, just a snack for supper, went to bed early and read for a bit. So that was our Christmas day. I suspect DB is feeling tired, he did not get his siesta yesterday. I plant to scrub the floor in the wet room and then take down the decs we did put up and put them away till next year. I have the bath towels in the washer, hope to get them a bit dry in the breeze.

No meals planned, we will be having something with salad tonight, I have some gammon ham in the freezer think it may well be that.

I hope you all had a good day yesterday. Good wishes for 2017.


  1. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your hubby. We did likewise yesterday, had a lovely day but oh the joy of peace and quiet in our own home when we arrived back at tea time. Lots of laundry out on the line and in the drier, heavier bits outside for a while and flimsies straight into the drier. Will iron later on, but first a nanna sleep. Take care hope 2017 treats you both kindly. Love Andie xxx

  2. It's good to hear that you and DB had a lovely, if tiring, Christmas day with family. Exuberant hubbub does make it nice to retreat to peace and quiet at home. :)

    I was up to feed the cats at 8a so put a few seldom used items in the dishwasher and started it to wash up. It should be finished soon so that will be good.

    Am trying to get myself revved up to sew something but it's hard to find the umph for that.
