Boxing Day 2009

Posted by DMC on 26 December 2009 in Diary |

An early-morning visitation to my bed by Lara and Seb. but thankfully not so early is Christmas morning. After they were bored with their grandfather’s chat, I was left in peace to have my breakfast and then  I snuggled down for an hour or so and listened to the test match from South Africa. After a very promising start, of 2 wickets for 10 runs, England allowed the Springboks to build up quite an impressive score but not out of reach by any means.

We woke to a bright blue chilly day and  mid-morning Smiler and I went to the local meet. There was an excellent turnout and no hunt saboteurs. I wonder how long it will take the Conservatives to repeal the current anti-hunt legislation, which is clearly not working, if  they get in at the next election. The day passed happily enough, moving  seemingly incessantly from meal to meal with all doing their own thing, some reading, some playing with their latest toys or gadgets and the young  with the occasional visit to the TV.

Smiler and Kimberly set off home after lunch as Miles has to leave the day after tomorrow to go to Wales to shoot. Before he left Smiler kindly installed my new large number,  hands-free telephone, which he and Kimberly are  kindly given to me for a Christmas present, and which will be a lot easier to use than the old one.
