Sue has slowly recovered from her Pluerosy and is nearly back to normal. She travelled down to Worcester to meet Philippa last Sunday to swap presents and do a bit of shopping. Sarah has had mock exams all week and though suffreing from a chest cold managed to keep smiling, she even had one on the day they broke up for Christmas, what is the world coming too? Jamie has been busy at work and even attempted to help me with building his new wardrobe. Harriet I am reliably informed is now history, which is a shame as he had bought her star for Christmas (You buy the right to name one of the trillions of stars that are discovered in the universe). He drove over to Thrapston to see another girl the other night (I hope she’s called Harriet or it looks like a wasted present).
I had a phone call during Tuesday Tea. Nan was delivering presents around the village and we think tripped over her shoe laces. The result was that she broke her wrist and badly cut and bruised the side of her face (smashed her glasses). Luckily she was spotted by someone looking out of their window and an ambulance was called. I arrived at Rotherham General about 7pm and we were allowed home (Thurcroft) at 10pm. She had a pain killing injection and it lasted until Thursday. On Thursday we went back to the hospital to have a pot put on (she chose a rather festive red colour) and then drove down to Harborough. She is now enjoying the delights of our new woodburner and the excellent waiter service. Though uncomfortable she is managing rather well and doesn’t appear to be too put out.
Charlotte and Suraj have succumbed to the chest infection and are rather poorly (and sound it on the phone). Hopefully they will be better by Wednesday which is the day they come down for Christmas. Lucas appears to be fine.
I was Santa (at the school Christmas Fayre), I had let my beard grow and have encouraged it to turn white over the last few years, in anticipation of such an invite! But now I have experienced this latest chapter in my life , I shall now trim it, perhaps tint it and close the chapter by never repeating it!!! Last Thursday night I went to Farndon Fields Christmas dinner at a local Italian restruant. It was well attended but I sat next to a member of staff I didn’t really care to be sat next too, and left early to go to Christmas buffet at the Catholic Club (which enjoyed more). It was also Sue’s Christmas dinner with Church Langton at the Angel Hotel, she had a nice time and had proper Christmas food, instead of the pasta and pizza I had. I managed to referee Harborough Vets on Saturday, quite a festive affair.
Now we are waiting for Christmas to arrive.
