|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?
Hi there Fatty! If you cannot waddle to the village Christmas quiz, Paul will have to roll you there!ReplyDelete
It does seem amazing that Rick has been with you for three years. It seems just like yesterday when he came along and Paul had to devise ways of preventing possible escape... by Rick, not you!
He worked so hard to build those lovely gates.Delete
Rick has really landed on his feet with you hasn't he? I am pretty sure he knows it too. Enjoy that dinner party and do let us know how it goes.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping it will provide me with lots of blog fodder.Delete
Sounds as if you are getting into the Christmas spirit(s)!ReplyDelete
Just the occasional glass of mulled wine. It tastes almost medicinal.Delete
Jeremiah's hat is perfect. Don't worry about just one kilo; it's the extra stone that shocks. A new year resolution will soon deal with it. Rick is looking good.ReplyDelete
Paul did J's hat while I was out walking with Rick.Delete
He could set-up a business.Delete
Three years?! How can that be? :)ReplyDelete
As Cro said, the weight can be dealt with after New Year. Merry Christmas to you all!
I know, three years! It's crazy.Delete
You will be on Strictly Come Dancing next!:)ReplyDelete
As you would say, I don't think so!Delete
I get fat from reading all the blogs about Christmas. Everything looks so delicious and good.ReplyDelete
I'm sure I put on weight just looking at food!Delete
That photo of Rick is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I think he needs an eyebrow trim.Delete
Now't so queer as these Linkasheer folk! I hope you enjoy the dinner party, sounds very mysterious. As for the weight - a mere blip - you will soon sort that out.ReplyDelete
I did enjoy the dinner party although it was a bit of a disaster for me at the end.Delete
This morning I saw a dog who looked exactly like Rick!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your dinner party - I see that Yorkshire Pudding has devoted today's blog to tips for "relaxed" conversation at just such an event! If you're tempted follow his suggestions, please, do let us know if they were well received!
I didn't seen YP's blog until after the dinner party otherwise I could have tried out his suggestions!Delete
