Christmas has felt most peculiar this year. Perhaps it is because we had our big lunch with Granny and Granddad yesterday and in the same day I booked a cookery class for my birthday next year!
In any case, my dad gave me a euphorbia for the front garden. He actually had two different colours: golden or silvery. As you can see, I chose the silvery one, as I felt it would go better with the front garden, but there are plenty of the other, should I decide differently in the future.
Back home now, I am relieved to see that there are no signs of the rats in the garden. Before we went away, I covered all the entrances to their tunnels, expecting to see new ones today. However, there are none, so I hope I can now relax.
That’s not to say we didn’t have a good time whilst away. After our Christmas lunch we took a walk round the grounds of Belton House near Grantham and I was charmed by some deer. Last year, we saw the real animal but this time round they were of an altogether different kind.
Merry Christmas, everyone. Wherever you are in the world, I hope you’re having a good day.
