This morning was my last exercise class for the over sixties before Christmas.  A full hour of exertion, stretching every muscle in the body (or so it seemed) including quite a few I didn't even know I had!  After lunch I have just taken Tess for her walk, which I think loosened me up a little and now I am putting on a hurried blog before a friend pops in for a cup of tea.  How lovely it is to have such a full life.

Tomorrow morning both the farmer and I are going to our monthly Physiotherapy session.  I think I shall need it after today's exertions and the farmer is going round the farm cutting back briars and collecting them up in the top fields so that he can allow the sheep in there.  If they go in with the briars still sticking out from the hedges then within hours some of them will be tangled up in the thorns.

Lovely day here, slight breeze blowing from the South West and a nice sun shining gently over the fields.   All my cards are posted, as are all my parcels; all my present shopping is done.  I do not decorate the house until Christmas eve (I hate shrivelled up holly) so I can sit back and enjoy it for a few days now.   Have a nice day.

I still need to find time to sit down and write cards!

I hope your Physio goes well, and that the sheep enjoy their thorn-free field. There is always something to do on a busy farm.

I posted all our cards yesterday but still have the local hand delivered ones to do. Presents are not a problem as we give our 'tribe' cash and I will put it in cards nearer the time, to be handed over personally.
If you are stiff from today's exertions the physio will doubtless ease things for you.
The sheep will be grateful for the farmer's efforts.

Mailing most parcels today with a few cards.
Tonight I shall finish the cards.
Getting the tree this afternoon. Decorate the house tomorrow. I love looking at the few items I do put out.

cheers, parsnip

Like you I shall wait a while yet. I try to stick to the '12 days of Christmas'; decorations up 6 days before, and down 6 days after. Then after the wassail we can get back to 'normality' again.

I've posted all my cards too. Now I've got to write all the ones that need to be hand delivered.

Hope the physio makes you feel better!

I just sent out my cards. I don't do as many as I used to do. Your sheep will delight in the new field free of brambles I am sure!

You two lead such an active life!...and in all the fresh bracing air. I bet if the physio asks what you've been doing, you don't know where to start! A farm and its upkeep would keep you busy indeed, as does entertaining.
