Boxing Day is almost over, my guests have gone home and it is time for bed. On the whole things have gone well. The first Christmas is hard as anyone who has lost a loved one will tell you. But with the help of good friends and good family it has gone well and I have had lots of hugs which have helped.
Tonight it has turned cold - some of my guests had to scrape ice of their windscreens before setting off.
Tomorrow shops re-open luckily as I am almost out of dog food (Tess would be delighted to dine on turkey but she has had plenty of that today - she can smell it at fifty paces).
