We well OK the management has managed all the presants, it's all under the tree and it's not yet 9 pm, a normal Xmas would be a 2 am rush of parcels and paper.
This year, it is not yet nine and everything is done, we have watched a shed load of I player and retired, we are having a quiet night.
20 years ago we had a telly, now we watch everything online.
She is reading a book, I am writing, well I suspect you guessed that one.
Think we might have an early night, we have a St Emillion Grand Cru to keep us company for lunch tomorrow, 2007 was an OK year too.
I probably paid about 10€ for it - lot of money for a bottle of wine.
Lots of things have changed this year.
We thought fostering was over and now we have G - here for at least a year.
Little D is gone, things have really unravelled for him, but you can only do so much.
We bid a sad farewell to Citroen C5 estates, they have been a big part of this last couple of years. But after a too long absence back into the fleet came a Solihull product. A Land Rover Discovery with the 3.9 V8, automatic box and LPG. I am a bit of a petrol head at heart and I love that toy.
It fits brilliantly into our needs, we have a mega fun AX for flitting back and fore into town. For practical stuff we have the VW T4 van. If we need to move 6 people we now have the Discovery, if the weather turns all horrid we now have the dircovery, actually, we discovered this week that, running on LPG, the disco is not bad for long trips either. On locals it's horrendous like pouring fuel into the floor.
I love it though, the distant muted V8 noise.
Starting to sound like Jeremy Clarkson so it's time to stop driveling
