Today is Saturday 26th December, aka Boxing Day

The day has started overcast and cold. Worse is to come as Storm Bella is due to hit us tonight.
We’ve had a pretty late start to the day, but have done a small washload as we can get it dry indoors. We will have to do a main wash in the next couple of days and take it up to the launderette.

Yesterday found us reminiscing about previous Christmases and other happy events since we’ve been together. We might not have family to visit or visit us, but memories were vivid of past times and family get togethers.  Christmas Day in one house, Boxing Day in another, so parcels would be exchanged and opened over the two days.
Christmas is far from over in our house. We still have several parcels to open and lunch will be cold meats and leftovers, so no time at all will be spent on preparation.

Today a lot of the UK is entering Tier 4, so restrictions will be more severe for many. That is if they take any notice. We read the headlines on-line, see the pictures and shake our heads. It’s a shame common sense doesn’t come in tablet form or a bottle. Let us hope that come New Year the vaccine will be rolled out in more places to more people and give everyone the hope of a fighting chance if not to beat it, but avoid contracting it.

Keep safe everyone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I wasn’t expecting to find anyone online, thinking most people would still be busy enjoying their Christmas. We did try to make the most of yesterday, but there were too many people missing from our table for that to happen. This world is becoming a very sad place, and now we have an actual storm coming our way…

    • Thinking of you both. We were thinking about families with empty places at the table this year. There are several in our road who have lost spouses and family.
      We have Storm Bella due to hit us tonight. All being well we will be tucked up in bed by then. Take care. xxx

        Yes indeed… at least our family was just missing and not lost…

      • Our church candle has been lit every day and is now about half the size it originally was. My Mum, the Dads, Maggie, our dog walking friend and all of our departed friends and loved ones are remembered over the holidays. I spoke to Bro in NZ on Christmas Eve when it was their Christmas morning and that was wonderful.

  2. I’m glad you had a good Christmas, Di. I hope the vaccine is rolled out to the sensible people first, it seems only fair.
