Thankfully Christmas will soon be over. My heart always lifts after Christmas. My favourite day of the year is Boxing Day because it's 364 whole days to the next one. This year we are going to Norfolk to see baby James and his folks. We are taking the van and, I swear, we could have got flights to New York for the price of it.
Today's achievements? I went out and looked at the polytunnel. I lifted some begonia corms and harvested some kale. Made a chicken pie (frozen pastry) and crispy kale for dinner.
Today's goggle box fix? The last episode of Catastrophe and most recent episode of Fargo. I watch too much TV these days.
Most irritating thing on the news? Donald Trump. As nephew Ryan wrote,
I'm with you Donald, and I also think we should ban the sea until we know more about the rain.
Most heart-warming news item? The donkey that was rescued from the flood.
