Hope you all had a great Christmas, we certainly did, spent a few days with family in London.
We travelled by train as Myra does not enjoy flying, well not by aeroplane. Woke this morning to sub zero temperature, well pleased that I had the car in the garage.
Started off at eight thirty this morning to collect Purdee our cat who had been sent to her country retreat for the holidays. Driving was a little precarious on the icy roads, but fortunately majority were driving with care, overtaken by a couple of idiots, you know the type that has that driving ability that is superior to everyone else.
Hogmanay next, mind you that will be a quiet event in our household, very unlike the celebration we would have held many years ago. I don’t usually mind the winter, but after the very mild Autumn, and also November and early December being nothing like as cold as usual, this freezing weather is not all that welcome.
On the long train journey to London and back home again to Aberdeen, a bit of book reading was in order just to pass away some time. Something I do not do enough of, on this trip I read a novel by Jeffery Deaver called The Vanished Man, definitely worthy of recommendation. I will not go into detail, but it is about this great magician and escapologist who becomes disfigured result of a fire, and unable to perform on stage he turns to murder in a bid to get revenge.
This will be my last entry of 2006, I look forward to continuing again beginning of January. Next year I will not strive at an entry every single day, instead I will have a preference to continue at a level of three entries per week. Have a good New Year, I will talk to you soon, cant wait to get back into the garden again.
