The bit in-between

This week between Christmas and New Year is always a bit strange - it's like being in nowhere land!!! I've really enjoyed it though - no work, no teenage daughter, no stress!!!

My Christmas day was lovely - Jo came round for breakfast and we enjoyed smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, with Champagne of course!!! We opened our pressies and I got some lovely gifts...a soft and fluffy throw (to wrap around me when I'm laid on the sofa watching TV) and a massage voucher from Dan, a scarf from my Dad, a lovely jumper from my Mum, a new filofax (southerner!!!) some socks and undies (always welcome) perfume, new gold earrings, books (about riding of course - regarding finding your 'centre' and therefore improving your core balance - oo er!) a crystal ladybird of friendship from the lovely Jacqui, and of course lots of bath smellies!!!! I am a very lucky girl!!

On Christmas day afternoon I went and rode my horse, she was peaceful and calm, and so was I !!!

Then I had my lobster dinner - which was fantastic. Followed by a nice bath, clean pyjamas, and an early night in clean bedding - bliss!!!

The rest of the week so far has been taken up by washing my car (I bought a power-washer - I love my power tools!) and generally chilling out. (Busy doing nothing!)

Phoebe's legs are very much on the mend and yesterday she went out in the field for the first time in over a week.

I have really enjoyed my week alone, in complete peace and quiet - but all good things must come to an end, and I have to go back to work on Tuesday!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!

  3. A filofax? Is that to go with your new fangled Fax machine and your huge Motorolla mobile phone?

    When you go to work do you wear those 80's power suits with the big shoulders that you used to have in your atic?

  5. No Christian, I no longer wear power suits with my filofax - I just wear plain back trousers...how dull!!..and I never had a huge motorola phone....did I? I don't even have a blackberry, although the IT department are always trying to get me to have one, but I just tell them that I would lose it. I would love it nowadays if there were no such things as even telephones!!!

    Thank you for your gloat about being off until 8th...enjoy your break mate!!!
