Farewell

DS and our middle Grand-dog Miss M. have just left to drive back to his fiancée's parents ready for the New Year. We shall see them for his birthday soon, to celebrate both his birthday and have our Christmas. It seems so strange not opening presents until then but I believe Russia doesn't celebrate Christmas until January 7th, so we won't be far off!

Herewith our final picture of Miss M., fast asleep in her bed in front of the wood burner. She has her fleece on as we had just come back from a walk and she had had her legs hosed down:
We have just had a quick lunch as I have a massage this afternoon, followed by our monthly delivery from the supermarket. I was shocked at the price, despite it only being a 3 week shop with only a few extra's for when our visitors come down, it was nearly £15 more than usual - shocking.

DB has done the first clear up after visitors and is running the vacuum around as I type! Tomorrow we shall have our first quick, early morning visit to the 'big' shops, then get all our decorations down. We don't tend to take them into the New Year unless we have visitors coming.

The final menu for 2014 has gone onto the Menu tab at the top. I shall begin a new page for 2015. Our meat entitlement under rations has and will be over the limit sometime in the next few weeks due to visitors coming and going. Then it will return to normal.

If I don't do a post until then, we both hope you all have a lovely time over the New Year if you are celebrating and that 2015 is a good year for you all.

    1. She does doesn't she. Must have been strange on her own but in a week or so, they will all be here, 2 Springer Spaniels and one rather large and exuberant Labrador! They are all well trained so are usually fine.

    1. same to you. They are lovely and like cocker spaniels tend to follow you, most disconcerting when you don't expect it.
