Run away, hide or look busy. Oh no that's when Jesus is coming. I've been a bit busy over the last week doing stuff so I'm just catching up with posting something to my blogs.
Friday our friend Clive came around bearing a Xmas gift of a bottle of a very fine Lebanese wine, and we added to it by opening something from our wine rack, as one bottle between three is not quite enough. Saturday morning was spent recovering from the excess intake of alcohol while Saturday afternoon was spent eating to excess with Roger and Chris and other friends. We were celebrating the shortest day of the year by eating cooked meat products, and various other sundries. We both drank Ginger Beer, because one of us was driving and I still felt rather fragile from Friday night. Spending the afternoon generally shooting the breeze and catching up with people made for a nice end to the week for us.
So it really feels like we have had a bit of a social life this December, what with parties and entertaining. Tonight we had Bill around for a meal with wine and port and watched one of my favourite Xmas movies, Die Hard. So we are now all ready for the big day tomorrow when we get to watch the Dr. Who Xmas special.
I've also finished the first pass edit of my novel, removing two thousand words in the process. Most of those were redundant "I said, she said" tags. Now to blow through the cobwebs and shine up the prose ready for my beta readers.
On that note I shall end this entry and I hope everyone has a good Xmas holiday and manages to enjoy themselves.
