I always like to get my 'flu over with before Christmas. Usually it doesn't work out that way. Usually, it's the Christmas day sniffles. But no. Done with.
So the weekend before Christmas has been eventful and fun. There was a bit of a wobbly start, with the Leaning Christmas Tree of Calverley. I told Noel people would have paid to see it. Well, perhaps not, especially as it leaned so far in the night, it fell over. Cat was unimpressed, it was kind of behaving as if the great big tree in the corner wasn't really there. It's number one suspect in the knocking-the-thing-over stakes. So there had to be un-trimming, re-potting then re-trimming. All very festive and good-humoured, of course!
The skies have emptied themselves of rain for the time being, so we headed for the Peak District. Beautiful countryside. Beautiful day. In't life brilliant?!
