I seem to be better prepared for the festivities than ever before. Which is wonderful, especially as the weather does not entice me to go out to go shopping or even to go out for that matter. I am happy never to shop, it is not one of my favourite activities and never has been.
This is the scene in the garden this morning, but do not be deceived by the charm of this photo it is bitterly cold -7C and a fairly strong and bitter wind. Time to hibernate perhaps.
