I have just made my fourth Christmas List. What has happened to the other three? I shall probably find them - one by one - around March/April time.
And shall I understand them? Doubtful as I usually write them in a sort of code so that if the recipient of any present listed should find the list, it would be meaningless. This time I have cracked it and made the list and filed it on my computer under CHRISTMAS LIST. You can't get more straightforward than that can you?
Now that my final batch of guests have departed before the festive season I shall begin to make my cakes (I make four - three as presents and one for ourselves (I don't like it anyway). When I have finished today's post I shall start writing my Christmas cards.
So, you will see, I am well prepared and intend to take it all in my stride. No need to do otherwise.
Pouring rain has given way to strong wind and bright sunshine - quite a cheery day from inside but as the wind is directly from the North I expect it is a different story outside the door.
My exercise class has been cancelled as the tutor is not well. It is five weeks since we had a class and my joints are going rusty. I try to keep busy and energetic but it is not the same as doing it all to music (and yes, I know, I could put the radio on at home and do the exercises - but I don't. I need others to participate).
The whole time I have been writing this a little robin has been perched on the top of the privet hedge just outside the hall window - I think he is reminding me that there are only thirty shopping days to Christmas. I need to go out there and tell him that I don't care - it is all done and dusted.
