    Anyone doing anything more interesting?

    Happy new year to you too! Pretty much the same for us-Cheeses,salamis,olives,sundried tomatoes for me-Carby snack food for the non diabetics as well,bottle of fizz for midnight and happily getting pickled on Jack Daniels and vodka in the meanwhile...Hoping for some decent music on the TV later as Queen's live performance last new years eve was excellent.

    A Happy 2016 to everyone with many thanks for support and friendly interest.
    Midnight walk up the hill to watch the fireworks over the lake. Wonderful, and even better without the noise, just the occasional whoosh!
    A small feast of shortbread and strong drink and then we all trooped back down the hill to bed. My visitors are off to the coast tomorrow and I intend to do the most pressing chores and then read in the garden all afternoon, being brought sustaining cups of tea by my long suffering spouse.

    I recorded the Hootenanny to watch later and watched the fireworks on BBC1. Mine was venison sausages with purple sprouting broccoli.

    Happy New Year y'all.

    And the same to you back, an everyone else who's left.

    Yeah boring day here, dull and gloomy, I finished off the Christmas pud (portion control!) with blueberries, clotted cream, ground flaxseed and brandy to chase down almost the last of pheasant #2 stir-fried with the Usual Suspects. Most of the purple sprouting broccoli a lot of the sprouts and all the venison sausages and Gloucester Old Spot sausages seem to have disappeared too.

    If I'd gone for my New year's walk today I'd have had to take an umbrella and probably a torch also. Tomorrow sounds a bit better.

    Where has this past week gone?

    It doesn't seem possible that it was only one week ago we were thinking it's 1st January 2017, and now it's the 8th !!!

    At this rate Easter is just around the corner ...

    We had a few more family get-togethers during the week, which was lovely. We are finding that with the family 'spread out' from North to South (and in-between) it is much easier to stagger our Christmas and New Year celebrations ... added to the fact there are a few January birthdays to be enjoyed too!  

    Anyway, I'm enjoying a very nice quiet day today - sometimes a quiet day is just so good!

    We have a good pork belly roast to enjoy later ... must make sure the fat is well done ... can't beat a little crackling now can you!

    Happy Sunday

    All the best Jan

    Yes I used to do Christmas with my folks, Boxing Day the landlord and landlady had a party which included us tenants, then I'd hie me over to Bristol and stay with friends for the New Year.

    When I was little we used to have Grandma for Christmas. Later we could afford a turkey.

    Mother cooked Christmas dinner for well over 60 years, she had a welcome break when we moved here and used to visit my aunts and uncle who lived not far away. After they died I took over the job using pheasants.

    When we lived in Surrey Christmas day was about the only time the roads were relatively deserted and people we met actually said hello. Here it's like that all the time. I mainly wander about chatting to strangers, and their dogs, in various places.
