After the craziness of last night I had a much nicer AA man this morning who was not backward at coming forward about voicing his displeasure and unprofessionalism of last night’s AA man. Far from rescuing me to the garage, he fixed my car there and then by fitting a new drive belt for nothing but 20 quid. Then I drove off to Hopcrofts Holt to recharge my battery and check that everything was fine.

The weather was beautiful, clear skies and bright, winter sun. I really missed missing the carols at Millet’s Farm this year.

Then I headed off on my secret mission to purchase a birthday present by proxy for Emma – so I shall say no more in case she reads this and guesses. In the Christmas spirit, I got home and hung my wreath on the door and put the outside lights on the tree outside. This evening we put the Christmas tree up…

Christmas Tree

…tomorrow I intend to make mince pies!
