Happy New Year

Phew - back from my travels in time to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

Arrived home to find water dripping through bathroom ceiling, so supper, unpacking and chivving of offspring into bed have all been late and distracted. Finding a plumber on New Year's Day should be easy enough, shouldn't it . . . ???

Still feeling decidedly post-viral and even more decidedly middle-aged. I received some slippers for Christmas (I don't usually 'do slippers') - and (here's the really dreadful bit) - I LOVE them!!! I have 'done slippers' a lot over the past week. I have snored on sofas a lot. I have drunk many more teas than G&Ts. I have not been for any bracing walks, nor have I braved any shops to snap up bargains in the Sales. I have read quite a lot of books, though, so it hasn't all been a Bad Thing.

Jools Holland and friends are beckoning from the sitting room, so I am about to move on from one of these

to one of these

and then at 12.05 my slippers and I will be heading up the wooden hill with a[nother] good book.

Lots of good wishes from me and the Muddy Island to all my readers xxx

I didn't even make it to Jools Holland, Juliet. How sad is that?

Despite my own lamentable failure to get stuck into the festivities, I do wish you a happy new year. And I hope that you found a plumber in possession of a sense of urgency but whose eyeballs didn't go into cash register/KERRCHING! mode when, on New Year's Day, you said that it was an emergency call-out.
