Goodbye November, Hello December
It was my friend Jo's birthday back in October and we had decided that as a birthday treat for both of us, we would meet up, just the two of us and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of tea, cake and chat. It was just that, and we had a lovely time and have agreed that we must do it again, in the Summer, when we can sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the sunshine too.
Then it was all systems go getting ready for our week away in Norfolk with the majority of the family and Lesley & Tom, some of our other close friends.
Other than that, the month has seemed to fly by with no time for much else, other than a few Governors' meeting thrown in just to keep my feet on the ground.
We managed to get a couple of hours in the garden on the very last day of the month, but there are still lots of Winter gardening jobs still on the list .... maybe December will see us buckling down and getting that big Winter tidy up done.
Now we're actually into December I feel I can now say 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! And its definitely time to start the Christmas preparations properly, although I have to say that, this year, I do already feel quite organised.
As well as saying goodbye to November, I think we've well and truly said goodbye to Autumn and we've already had our first Winter frosty mornings.
As well as looking forward to the festive season, we have an evening out to see Andre Rieu on the agenda later in the month, which was a birthday treat for me from friends. We've been to see him once before and it may not be that current or everyone's cup of tea, but it's a real spectacle and I'm really looking forward to it!
