Turkeys, tinsel and time pieces!

Trudes and I had a quiet Christmas day, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a jolly one. Trudes was very happy with all the things that she got from me. And I was over the moon with the gifts from Trudes and the pups. Amongst the loads of lovely pressies was a meccano robot that I had to build, unusually for such things it came with batteries, huzzah! There was also a Bill Bailey DVD and two Ian Rainkin books, I haven’t read any of his stuff before but the blurb on the back made them sound good. I also got a Kathy Riechs book, the TV series Bones is based on them; again I haven’t read any before so it will be a new experience. I got a fantastic watch from the in-laws, you need a degree in mathematics to understand it, but it has flashy lights and looks very sci-fi. So I’m looking forward to showing that off. I’m not going to list what the missus got; you can find out on her blog, I don’t want to steal her thunder.

Tomorrow (Sunday) we have friends visiting, I’m very much looking forward to the day, although I have to pop out early in the morning to get some shopping, I swear if it wasn’t for the last minute I’d get nothing done. Poor Trudes is going to be running around like a headless turkey sorting out the scoff for the day, and we have saved one or two pressies from friends to open on the day. I’m very curious about one of the gifts, although I think I have an Idea what one of Teas is.

On Monday there’s a chance of a visit to Dover castle, I really hope this happens as I haven’t been there since the revamp, of course I’d love for Trudes to be coming with me, but I’m not sure she would be able to handle all the stairs and travelling, plus someone has to be at home with the pups. However I do plan to pup sit for her if she wants to spend time with her son/folks, or visit other friends.

Anyways, that’s about it for now, I think the next entry will be a review of the year. I hope, dear reader, you had a good Christmas and spent it loved ones as it should be. Until my next entry, keep warm, and don’t drink and drive. You’re likely to spill it and short out the dashboard electrics.
