|Jeremiah getting into the Christmas spirit
Christmas is coming and I’m getting fat! I blame the mince pies and afternoon slices of Whisky Dundee cake but I thought I could keep the extra pounds at bay with all my dancing and dog walking. Apparently not, according to the bathroom scales I have gained a whole kilogram in a week.
This morning I have been stumbling around the garden room trying to keep up with the steps to the 1960’s hit Runaround Sue. I have to keep repeating the routine again and again in order to remember the sequence and now, of course, I can’t get the ruddy tune out of my head.
We have a busy week ahead with the Xmas quiz night at the village hall on Thursday and a dinner party to attend on Saturday evening. The dinner party is a bit of a mystery as, apart from our hosts, the other guests are a secret. Apparently this is to stop uninvited villagers from getting upset. Bizarre.
This will be Rick’s third Christmas with us. Doesn’t time fly?
