Today friend W and I did our final run to top up on all things Christmas - food I mean. My freezer is now full to bursting and apart from fresh vegetables nearer to the big day I have nothing left to do apart from one last cake to make, and I intend to do that in the morning.
After our shop we called on the way home at a restaurant we know and had fish, chips and mushy peas with our favourite drink of lime juice and soda water. We are conoisseurs of this drink and rate it out of ten - this one was up there with the tens. You would not believe how they vary from ultra weak to ultra strong and everything in between. Similarly they vary greatly in price from around 65 pence to well over and £1 .
Our journey to the shop on our large retail park was in sunshine but by the time we returned we ran into rain again - it has rained here for days and it is getting very depressing. Now I am off to finish writing my Christmas cards. See you tomorrow.
