This is where I went to take some cash out of the bank yesterday, the machine at the local post office. It was a shock to find it had er, gone. I had to go to the machine at Tesco’s instead, which is of course much busier with potential virus infected persons. Why did I need cash anyway I hear you ask? I haven’t used any for months, but our local Nepalese takeaway will only accept cash payments for deliveries. A Google search tells me the post office has closed about 600 cash points. How ****** inconvenient. They could have asked me first. Honestly!
As I hear more of my friends are suffering with the dreaded Covid these days, unable to fathom where they actually picked it up, which is scary, I hope you are all keeping safe and well, wherever you are around the world.
2021 was going quite well for me until I lost my house keys somewhere within the house or garden or out at the bins. 1 hour later in a state of extreme anxiety with David on the verge of calling out an emergency locksmith, I found them in my new apron pocket. Phew phew phew!! It would have been very expensive to replace all these keys, not to mention inconvenient. I have now ordered myself a little gadget from Amazon with some of my Christmas vouchers, which will enable me to find mislaid keys via an app on my phone. In the mean time I am now routinely double and triple checking the keys are still where I left them, like a crazed OCD person.
But for today, peace reigns, I still have my keys, and I woke up in my lovely new pyjamas. We’ve taken down the Xmas tree, cards and decs, had a big hoovering session and everything is looking shipshape again. Here are a few of my favourite cards this year…
This one’s called “Sunlight through the birch trees”. My sister knows me well.
On a wildlife theme, I also liked this wintry fox from Clare and Luke..
and these hares from Debbie and Chris..
The only snow we’re getting in Windsor is the snow on my Christmas cards!
I have to mention the handmade cards, thank you for your handiwork my friends..
This one was a couple’s effort from Suzanne and John, most impressive.
This was from Helen, always an artistic card from Helen..
And this one was from Gwen and Peter, made by Gwen who is a very talented calligrapher and teacher.
And last but not least, I can never tire of hearing what a Wonderful Wife I am!! Thanks David XX.
We received many other lovely cards, texts, e-cards and e-mails. All gratefully received especially after the year that was 2020.
I have an enormous duck to roast now. Ocado brought us one that was double the size I actually wanted. Duck curry anyone? 😊 Xx.
