Thick freezing fog here this morning. It may be fairly local because our village is near to the river North Tyne. I don't think I'll go far to check. Mum and I both had bad nights (separately). She was coughing for 2 hours while I was asleep and I was awake for 2 hours from 0400 - sore throat and ear and still coughing a bit. Here's hoping that we are both well by 2010!!
Yesterday was very quiet. We managed a game of Scrabble (I won) and watched a bit of TV, but retired by 9pm. I played a few carols and Christmas music on the piano. Mum worked hard to eat a small portion of the meal, but complained I had done 4 veg. Mine didn't taste wonderful. Still, "in the greater scheme of things", we can't complain. We are warm, well fed and we didn't have to cope with a large tribe of argumentative relatives.......!!!
