It's a bright sunny morning but the wind is blowing a hooley. It's very cold so the sight of the leaves swirling around is best viewed from inside with a nice hot cuppa in hand....although we do have to go out in it later.
Andy so enjoyed his little trip out yesterday. He had a good walk as he got DD to drop him at the bottom of the High Street and went to meet her on A**a's car park when he had done......another first......being on his own for the first time in three weeks. It was quite funny seeing him coming in with his little shopping bag after so long.
After a lovely meal of Mediterranean chicken with butter and parsley new potatoes we snuggled down to watch The Hobbit. I love the Hobbit films. Two and a half hours of gazing at Thorin Oakenshield does a girl a power of good.....lol.
Usually by this time of year I have a good pile of Christmas gifts awaiting wrapping but what I have so far you could fit into a carrier bag and still have room. DD and I have to pop into town after lunch so I might see if I can pick up a few more bits so that I don't feel quite so disorganised.
The only area where I will be ahead of myself is the putting up of the Christmas tree. We have a new family tradition started last year that Ruby comes and stays for the weekend to help Aunty DD decorate the tree...usually the last weekend in November so that it is up for December 1st. Ruby and family will be away that weekend so it will be going up on November 19th. After tea we snuggle up with popcorn and watch Christmas films. Ruby loves it.
Anyhoo....enough about Christmas. I had better go and sort out some clothes for going out in.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
