Xmas 2016 reveiw

For all my prior ups and downs I was in a good place for Xmas. The family Xmas meal was a great success with the majority attending, the exception being the Chester family Secret Santa was also a great success, so possibly my last xmas proved memorable.
On Xmas day we visited Aldbury to visit my parents grave, leaving flowers as lunch for the deer.
The weather was relatively mild and sunny. Boxing Day was spent with Derek and his latest Beue , Maureen,who is glamorous and very good company. Derek cooked an excellent dinner and with loads of drink the day flew by. We held each other up on the short walk home and slept soundly. Today another Derek link is visiting, Janet.

The longest journey

An accident involving 2 lorries closed the M1 Motorway.  in both directions yesterday afternoon, creating traffic chaos resulting in a very long, very slow journey home for us. 4 hours of tedious stationary traffic staring at car/Lorry headlights. By the time we got home we were exhausted, with just enough energy for a shower and bed.

Double glazing

We had an early visit from a second double glazing rep to estimate for replacing four leaded Windows ( which we hate ) with plain ( which we love ) .Both arrived extremely similar  with identical start dates so it was a toss of a coin job deciding.
