What a strange week it has been weather-wise. Alternate days have been breezy but pleasantly sunny. The other days, including today, have been horrible. Today it is very cold (two degrees), very foggy and heavy rain. Luckily the rain didnt start until I got home after a trip into town - my usual hair appointment followed by chores. Because it involved some admin work involving my son and because he has now broken up for the Christmas holidays, he kindly chauffered me round - a great help. Admin done I slipped into our Deli and bought two large Christmas cakes as presents. They are made in Wensleydale and are every bit as good as home made. Now that I no longer have my beloved Aga I no longer bake cakes.
I got home to find that Tess was out with Jane, my dog walker and Tess was quite perky when she returned - she had obviously enjoyed it in spite of the weather. I spent a quiet afternoon reading, doing the puzzles in The Times (I do these every day - have to keep the old brain active), and having the odd doze until it was time for The Repair Shop.
Well Election Day is drawing to a close - thank goodness - I and many others - am totally sick of all the empty promises and all the waffle. I shall certainly not stay up to see the declaring of the results; there was a time when I did. I did go and vote -my son drove me up to the Polling Station. I was in two minds whether to bother (ours is a very safe seat) but , as my son always says, "Remember Emily Davidson mother" - and I do.
Another week bites the dust. Not long to Christmas now - and more importantly not long to a New Year.
