I was awake at 8am and was in the mood to get on with the chores so (in my Pj’s) I cleaned the bathrooms, hoovered, dusted and tidied up and was in the shower by 10.45am. 

That felt good.

Before lunch DH and I went for a short walk up the hill opposite us – you get a great view across to the Cheviot Hills. 
What you can’t see is the deep valley where our house is, it looks like a flat vista and its not at all.

Thanks to Tesco’s and our wonderful Fruit & Veg man we are now well stocked up to hibernate for the next few days.
The roads are truly horrendous and though I am disappointed that we had to cancel yet another trip out (The Snowman at the Sage) it was the correct decision.

The tooth is getting better – still aches, but much better than a few days ago.  one good result from all this is that I have lost 1/2 stone.

The painkillers are sending me to sleep though…..ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..

Hope everyone’s preparations are going well, travel safely, keep warm and enjoy the holidays!

    Fabulous photos! Happy Christmas to you all. Stay warm… (some alcohol gargled might help the tooth! )

    It is snowy down south in UK too where our son is spending Christmas.
    Fine here in NZ – no surprise there.
