We were also fortunate in being able to have a new 'set top box' installed for the television which gives us lots of programmes in high definition. Like this most of course for the nature and wild life programmes.
I finished making my Christmas cards - every year I say I will start in the Summer but never do, always last minute. (Don't know why the photo looks blotchy because the cards certainly do not)
I have not had a cold in several years but the very week I did not want one, I developed one, and a nasty one at that. I had to miss our Christmas Quiz night, church and the making up of the Christmas hampers that we give out to needy people in the neighbourhood.
I did however manage to get to Pilgrims Hall Christmas meal. We were doing something different this year and putting on a buffet for all the helpers and counselors, along with the team and trustees.
The week will end with our Golden Wedding Saturday, House church Christmas party and carol singing in the neighbourhood on Sunday. We have severe weather forecast with heavy snow which could add to the ambience of the carol singing very much. Alan was asked if he would play his trumpet but he has neglected practicing recently so no trumpet, just guitars. Hope their hands don't freeze in the icy weather and snow.
Next week in the lead up to Christmas should be quite quiet and restful so there should be time to post on events.
