Advent Day #17

It's bloody cold here today and apparently, according to Kate who took the dog out for her walk half an hour ago at 6am, my car is all frosted up again. Great!

Anyway, I've opened today's advent parcels. From Wendy this gorgeous fat quarter of broderie anglais type material, and from Kathy another big bar of Dairy Milk chocolate. That'll last me a few days.

I've got a busy day today. I'm going over to Whitley Bay later this morning to hopefully buy a new gas fire for the siting room. The one we have at the minute is electric, and as it's so expensive to run we've only used it once in the three and a half years we've lived here. So we're going to have a gas one. We went to have a look in the shop on Saturday, just before closing time and chose one we like, just have to pay for it now and hope that they can fit it before C'mas. After that I'm going freezer food shopping with Mick and tonight I'll be off to stitch club. I don't think the rest of the week is quite as busy, although I do have an appointment with the diabetic nurse tomorrow morning. No doubt she'll be mining for blood. Good luck to her, hope she finds some - without bruising my arms too much.
