Benno has had a blinding day; five pike, three doubles to 16lbs 7oz, before he was called away to do a job - at 11.30hrs! Me? Well, Bev & I were at Asda by 04.30hrs, shopping safely stowed away and back in bed just over an hour later - Christmas sorted - result!! Last minute bits out of the way, we were able to enjoy a leisurely day of preparation in order to cope with the madness tomorrow will bring. The bungalow looks superb, once again Bev's power of seeing something, that isn't there, has produced the goods. This afternoon, I have prepared the vegetables (potatoes excluded) and we are ready to "rock & roll" on the cooking front.
The aviary got a special clean and the feeding station is filled to the brim, so the Christmas cheer is not restricted to the human visitors to our home. Jonathan has some chopped bacon to look forward to (not that a Herring Gull is able to look forward!) in the morning.
I realise that very few individuals will ever read this stuff - but I would like to wish anyone who takes the trouble to look, a very merry Christmas to you and your families - thank you for taking the time to peek into my world - God bless.
