First of December

Can you believe it? December already! Let the preparations begin, only, not today, because it's my birthday so I'm allowed the day off. Especially since my truly wonderful sister-in-law sent me this.



It would be rude not to sit down and have a good look through, don't you think?


I had grand ideas for a thirty-something fascinating things about me post, but after my friend Sarah fed me a delicious lunch, I discovered that I have become sadly unaccustomed to daytime drinking. I can only think of half a dozen mildly interesting snippets, and I probably shouldn't share half of them. So I shall remain silent and enigmatic.


Happy Advent one and all.

Happy birthday Ali - you share it with my big brother - he's 41 today but I am sure he wouldn't thank me for broadcasted that!

Enjoy a hazy afternoon

Happy Birthday!

I have that book -it's great!

Your post made me laugh. Isn't it strange that when you drink in the daytime, it geos straight to your head! I suppose we better get used to it now the festive season is here.

Cheers! Happy Belated...

Heading over to your side of the pond on Monday. Staying in High Wycombe at a Conference Center. I might be thirsty :-) Any tips for a spot where a girl might enjoy a refreshing beverage? :-)

I'm a week late wishing you a Happy Birthday, but I guess it's better late than never!! Hope you had a great birthday, Ali - I'm hoping to get that very same book for Christmas (if someone has taken the very broad hints I've been dropping!!!)
