“Just Chillin!”

Today was largely spent dozing in dazes as we all recovered after the last couple of days.

Danni brightened us all up with this e-mailed image of Becky and Ella with the caption “I love how they’re both just doing their own thing in this pic….. just chillin!”. She had taken the photograph during yesterday’s house party.

Later in the morning Margery and Paul visited to return my copy of Trollope’s ‘Doctor Thorne’ and borrow ‘Framley Parsonage’. At this rate our nonagenarian friend will get through my collection of this author’s works before I do.

This evening we dined with our children, their spouses, and Poppy at the Royal Oak. Apart from our granddaughter who chose strawberry ice cream, no-one could manage either starters orf desserts.

My main course was haddock on a bed of couscous and almonds; Jackie and Poppy both chose macaroni cheese; Ian enjoyed liver and mash; Matthew’s meal was steak and ale pie, chips, and vegetables; Tess’s was a juicy steak; and Becky’s ham, egg, and chips. Mat and I drank, soda water; Jackie, Amstell; Β Ian, Birra Moretti; Tess, Malbec; and Becky Diet Pepsi.



  1. Beautiful Little Ella is growing up so fast!
    Sounds like the perfect-chillin’ day with family!
    As I’m typing this commet, I’m listening to a song called Thankful by singer Josh Groban. In the song it says, “There’s so much to be thankful for”… πŸ™‚ A perfect sentence as I read about your time with your precious family…you DO have so much to be thankful for, Derrick!
    And so do I! πŸ™‚
    HUGS to all!!! πŸ™‚

  2. This is probably why the week exists between Christmas Day and New Years Day … so we can recover from the former in order to indulge in the latter. πŸ™‚
