Twenty First Day - Advent Blog

Urrggh I feel really grim today. Dave has had a sore throat for a few days and it's developed into a really bad cough, I think I'm coming down with the same........ I have a sore throat and a bad headache. I'm hoping this doesn't develop into anything more, why do these things always happen around Christmas.

Today  was the Material Girls Christmas lunch, I missed it as I was feeling so grim, it was a shame but I really didn't want to pass anything on.

I have spent  time today wrapping presents, every year I say I'll do it as I buy them but never do!!!

An update on the Amazon situation, they have resent the books that went astray in the Royal Mail but this time they have sent them separately.  So far I've received one book another two to go, fingers crossed they get here before Christmas.

I don't like to post without a picture, this was taken a week or so ago, a squirrel looking for it's nuts I presume, it did this all over the garden, why I don't know.  There were nuts in the feeders and usually it climbs up and helps its self?


  1. A lovely lunch, you were missed.

  2. Stay warm and get well soon Miriam.

  3. Coughs, colds and sore throats always seem to home in when Christmas is imminent. Typical!
    As for amazon, do you remember the song "I'm still waiting!" Well I'm humming it through gritted teeth!

  4. Love the picture. Hope you feel better by the BIG day!
