Crimbo and New Year.

Christmas seems a long time ago now. The usual run up was dreadful, promises have been made that next Christmas the shopping will be done by October.

The day its self was good, Ian come down to join us. Jo cooked a bird inside a bird, inside a bird, inside a pig. Jem joined us. Doctor Who was watched, Hmm... all a bit rushed, could have done with being a two part story.

24 hours before the end of the year, friends called to say "Car broke, we no come, we try fix car, car still no work.". So New Year's eve ended up being a little quiet. This could explain why I keep referring to things that need to be done later this year as, "next year". I haven't really taken on-board that it's 2014. TWENTY FOURTEEN! TWO THOUSAND AND FECKING FOURTEEN! This is a science fiction date! Where are the Martian colonies? Shouldn't we have robot servants by now?

Friends over from the US popped down to visit last week. Pleased to show off Deal to them. But more please to see them. Still have to hear back form them... hopefully they got back home without any drama. If you're reading this please drop an email to say you got home OK.
