Sarah was sadly unable to join us for Christmas from Australia but she generously gifted us a very extravagant hamper. I hold her fully responsible for the 2 kilograms I have gained over the holiday period.
The brandy butter was delicious with the Christmas pudding but we still had
half a jar left over. This morning I decided
to make some oat biscuits using the brandy butter. They were very good although I think they would have been nicer with a chocolate topping!
My wrist is slowly improving after my fall although it’s not strong enough yet for me to take Rick out. It is another frosty morning here in Lincolnshire but with blue skies and sunshine, much nicer than yesterday’s freezing fog.
Life is a bit dull at the moment in lockdown but I am thankful that Paul and I are both reasonably fit and healthy right now. I doubt that we will be summoned for our vaccination jabs before the middle of March so we will be patient. Spring is not too far away and it is reassuring to see the first snowdrops peeking through.
We have more building work (windows and utility room) scheduled for February so I think I’ll just try and enjoy the peace and quiet while I can.
