Our first Christmas cards arrived in the post yesterday. One from Col's manager from County Council days and then one that's really unsolicited junk mail - from The Salvation Army. It says on the back of the Sallie Army one that it's painted by a lady of 94 who lives in a Salvation Army home in Southend. Clever lady as it's a lovely picture - my favourite Christmas cards are always snowy scenes.
So here is Advent photo 3 - The first two cards ( and the real advent calendar again)
I did my usual 3 loaves of bread, a bit more clearing of unwanted things into the charity shop bag and caught up on last weeks Ben Fogle - Living in the wilds UK. He was with Amanda Owen - The Dales Shepherdess and as I watched I thought "I'm sure I had her book from the library but I can't remember reading it". I looked on-line at my borrowers history and yes I did have it but it's not written down in my Book Of Books Read, so I think it was wanted by someone else and I returned it without finishing it. In the book she had 7 children, on TV she had 8!! ...................and 1000 sheep. She was out with her husband shearing sheep 5 weeks after having the baby - Fit Lady!
Thanks for encouraging comments about driving yesterday.
