Sunday 28th December

Meal last night was very good.Never sure with pub grub what the quality is going to be like.It was just at our local,very local about 100 yds away. Everyone seemed to have a good time and son's girlfriend's Dad was on fine form.He is a very funny guy.
Today we did a bit of retail therapy.Got up late (after the Archers) then hit a garden centre for some half price Christmas stuff. Set of lights etc. Then to our favourite designer outlet
Matalan. I really needed some clothes! Sadly all my weight has gone back on again so I think I will have to do something about that in the new year.
Back home and a lovely lamb curry and then we are off out to a work colleague of hubby.

Saturday 27th December

Well that's Christmas done and dusted.Meal out tonight with MIL ,son and girlfriend and her parents looking forward to that,nice not to have to cook.

Christmas was an odd one this year as hubby was on nights.In 20 years of shift work this has never occurred before.Meant that for the most of Christmas day and all of Christmas night I was on my own.Thought I would be fine but wasn't really so won't do that again.Wasn't helped by the fact that just before Christmas I went down with a really heavy cold which laid me out for about 3 days so last minute preparations just did not happen.
Always think about people that I can't be with anymore like my mum and especially my granddaughter.
Did just about manage to get a few bits made for decorations and presents

Little mouse for Jessica

Table runner for Claire and Carlos

Snowman and Penguin for me
