Me on Monday

It was a week of the tail end of Storm Barra, dark evenings and clear, bright mornings.

Saturday’s Sunrise – 07.48 hours
  • I finished the Christmas cards and posted them
  • I made an appointment to see the orthodontist
  • I went to Carols by Candlelight
  • We received an invitation to spend New Year with our closest friends
  • I paid the final installment for a Crop in the Country weekend that is hopefully going ahead in February (postponed from February this year)
  • I agreed with the latest round of Covid restrictions
  • I worked on December Daily
  • I was able to snag a slot for an online grocery delivery during Christmas week
  • I am annoyed beyond belief about the behaviour of those in government and their advisors
  • Tilly went for wash, cut and blow-dry 🙂
  • The washing machine died 😦
  • We met my sister-in-love to walk our dogs together
  • The Boy and I went into town to check out the Christmas windows

  1. It’s hard to put into words how angry last weeks news made me – we were all following the harshest of rules so carefully and meanwhile back in Downing Street ……
    Let’s hope that all those delayed events that didn’t happen last year come to fruition in 2022 – fingers firmly crossed.
    What a beautiful sunrise photo – the depth of colour is absolutely lovely.

    1. I know what you mean re our politicians – I am furious with them!
      The sun came up during my step class and I had my fingers crossed that the sky would still look like that at the end of the class. 🙂

  2. A truly splendid photo, Ruth! And yes to your thoughts on our political situation, though I am not at all surprised about it. That sounds lovely, seeing in the New year with your closest friends :).

  3. Beautiful morning rise. Those in government seemed to be a whole other bred of humans once elected (IMO). They need reminding of why they are there, who allowed them to be there … I’ll say no more, other than we have a few of the same bred here in Canada.

    Oh yes fingers crossed to an in person scrap weekend, away. And now that Miss Tilly has been beautified for the festive season, let the celebrations truly begin (col).

  4. Well, this is the second post slyly referencing the government over there. I am blissfully ignorant, and just hope it doesn’t give anyone over here crazy ideas, because we often have enough of our own.

    Otherwise, there is a lot in common here and there. I posted 2 packages and 75% of my Christmas cards today, and hope to finish the cards tomorrow. I need to make a dentist appointment as I chipped off a bit of a tooth that had been repaired 2 months ago by foolishly chomping down on some very hard candied popcorn. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law just left after a visit of 5 days; it was wonderful having them here. And although I have done most of my shopping online, I do hope to get out to the shops for at least a day, just to soak up some of the Christmas festive atmosphere. Thinking ahead all the way to the New Year alludes me though.

    1. There’s a lot of anger over the antics over government ministers and staff attending Christmas parties last year when London was in Tier 4 and gatherings indoors were not allowed. Photographic and video evidence continues to appear …
