All packed away

That is it for this year. All decorations have been put away.We have run the vacuum around and will dust tomorrow. Granola has been made and a crock pot of stew is on the go.

For the New Year we shall be calm and quiet, seeing in 2017 as the noise of all the fireworks will wake us up or keep us awake. It is quite odd how all the excitement seems to fizzle out, either due to age or being on your own.

Our food, barring milk and a few fresh things will see us through for another week and so far, the sausage rolls and mince pies remain in the freezer. We have enjoyed two trifles though:)

Have a great celebration and see you in 2017.

  1. All packed away here too - we just need to move the small glass cabinet back into position and all will be back to normal. The fairy lights that were on the mantel before Christmas are still there as I find them cheering on gloomy afternoons; I have another string to go on the dresser in the kitchen.
    We will be much the same as you regarding New Year celebrations - I don't like it at all as it always makes me feel unsettled.
