We shot into town this morning to pick up things that didn't arrive on our monthly shop delivery. Then back home for a quick lunch of cheese on toast. We nearly always take our decorations down before the New Year.
An hour or so later, that was done. Whilst we were both huffing and puffing, we also swapped our furniture around. We do this at the beginning of each month to enable fair wear and tear as we prefer to sit on the same side of the room most of the time.
A quiet evening will be had by us. Fireworks and church bells will herald in 2015, so no point in retiring before then.
Soon, providing DS can get a couple of extra days off, we shall expect them all to celebrate a belated Christmas as well as his birthday.
Until then, there ain't nobody here but us chickens!
