'twas the week before Christmas'

Busy week ahead. Tonight Dan, myself and our very good friend Nicola (lovely horse-riding lady from our office...you may remember she came to watch me do my first dressage competition) are off to Olympia to seethiswhich we are very excited about - some of the show jumping has even been on the BBC this weekend (wonders will never cease). We can't wait - and there's a huge shopping village as well so I'm expecting to give the old Visa card a bit of a hammering. Tomorrow I'm going to work, and may go in on Wednesday as well. On Wednesday night it's our company Christmas Party - which is a very posh black tie affair. Then on Thursday it's our family Christmas at home (the one with the chefs) then on Friday, Dan heads off to Sheffield on the train to go home for Christmas - leaving me here to look after the neddies (and to get ten days peace and quiet!)

Today I've got presents to wrap, and food to buy, and cream tea to make to we have something nice to eat before we head off into town for the horse show this evening. I'm quite excited and looking forward to the week. I'll let you know how it all goes!!

  1. I hope this does not mean you are alone for Christmas!!!

    That's just not right.

  3. Actually, yes - I am alone for Christmas - but please don't worry as I'm thrilled by the prospect. I will have 10 days of complete peace and quiet - Jo (lovely girl) is coming on Xmas day morning to share breakfast with me and we're having champagne, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. I'm having lobster for my lunch (instead of turkey) and then in the late afternoon I'm going to ride my horse....this is my idea of the PERFECT christmas!!! There will be nobody chatting away nineteen to the dozen in my ear, and nobody else to think about - only me...bliss!!!
