Looking at the Radio Times Christmas issue for Saturday through to the New Year last weekend I found nothing of real note that I want to watch on any of the five terrestrial channels. There’s always something so I looked again but to no avail! I thought that perhaps it was just me but a couple of people have since said the same thing. I’m not sure if I feel a sense of relief or gloom at that!
Oh well, I’m glad that I’ve been stocking up with plenty of library books over the past week or two. One of them is Death on the Ice by Robert Ryan which I’m not so sure is a good choice for this time of year. I think that Ryan’s previous book Empire of Sand would be a warmer read but typically I read that back in the summer!
On Sunday morning the Horticultural Society’s Christmas Party will be held in the trading shed. There’ll be food, drink, a raffle and even crackers along with plenty of good natured banter and laughs. One tinge of sadness is that longtime helper/committee member Ashley won’t be there as he died a few weeks ago. It came as a real shock when we learnt of his death as he was the youngster among us being only 52! He was a kind soul, and happy to be the resident tea boy who always made tea/coffee for everyone. We’ll miss his weekly presence that’s for sure. I’ll also miss sharing a biscuit or two with John’s lovely dog Jodi who hadn’t been well for some time and had to be put to sleep last week.
Have a good weekend!
