This is my third Xmas blog written on the day before Xmas and I've seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens. No spoilers from me. All I'll say is that I enjoyed the film for what it was and reveled in the nostalgia of seeing old friends having adventures again.
Work wise I've been distracted from working on Ghost Dog by Xmas, Beta reader feedback on Strike Dog, and editorial questions about Bad Dog. The latter being the quite discombobulating as my mind is currently focused on the necessary revisions to Strike Dog.
But as I said it's the Xmas thing that has taken most of my time.
That and reading up all the Star Wars: The Force Awakens threads on the internet. Called me Miss No Mates, I know that's sad. Currently Susan is slaving in the kitchen, I've helped by preparing the Brussels Sprouts, and I'm about to pop into the bath to soak away the pains from last minute Xmas shopping: Taylor's 10 year old Tawny port, and a bottle of Penfold's Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet, along with chestnuts and dried apricots for making stuffing.
So, all is right here at home as I listen to John Williams music from Star Wars. Tomorrow we'll unwrap our presents and watch the Dr Who Xmas special. That just leaves me to say thank you all for reading my blog, and I wish you all a Very Merry Xmas – and may the Port or drink of choice be with you.
