Last day of work before Christmas for me! Back on the 5th of January!
Don't hate me for that, I have worked my butt of this term and totally deserve it! Not that you don't, of course, I am sure that you deserve a good break just as much as I do?
So, Number One Son is home from Uni, the decorations are up thanks to Mrs RC and our daughter who, not having school or college to worry about has had time to help out a lot. But Mrs RC has taken on the brunt of the work, so I am hoping to take some of the strain once I finish work.
The dogs are getting in the swing of it all - they keep nosing the presents that are under the tree, but are good enough to stop there. At the moment, anyway...
I think our Christmas will be fairly quiet when we get there. My mum will be spending the day with us, which will be nice. She will be bringing Spot with her, who enjoys a visit to his old stomping ground. He used to be my dad's dog, and we used to walk him with ours. Here he is having a cuddle with my mum.
He has put on a bit of weight (not too much) since moving in with her, but they are both loving living together. They are very good for each other, Spot keeping my mum active since she lost Humphrey the pony.
I am not sure how much online time I will have for the next however long - I will try to keep tabs on my favourite bloggers out there, so you are more likely to get stupid comments on your blog than you are to see stupid posts here, but who really knows? I intend to get in some writing time on my book, play a few games (watch out for photos of my Star Wars games!), drink a few beers (this probably combining with the other activities mentioned), so I think this break will be a good one.
Have a great Christmas, everyone!
