Last night we all had a lovely evening.Prue’s ex housemate came over for dinner and we exchanged Christmas gifts, prior to her leaving for the US. As I write, she is winging her way to San Fransisco, then after a brief stopover, on to JFK. It’s a long flight but she has plenty of work to do on the plane for her employer, so she does not anticipate sleeping until she arrives at her parents’ home in Pennsylvania.Although this will be her third trip back this year, she was excited and looking forward to catching up with her family, shopping and going skiing. When she left here late last night, she had not packed but being the seasoned traveller that she is, she said that task would only take a few minutes! Her husband will be flying out to join her next week and they will stay until New Year’s Day before returning to Melbourne and returning to work the next day.
There is a relaxed atmosphere here this morning. D attended his work break up yesterday afternoon which he said was good but he left relatively early because he is not into drinking large quantities of alcohol and his work mates were gearing up for a long evening, so he left them to it.Right now he has gone out to do his normal Saturday routine – going to the Asian food markets and buying a ticket in the weekly lottery. He prefers to go alone and is quite a local identity around the various stores(mainly due to the fact that he is not Asian). The shopkeepers all know him by name and he loves the recognition lol. Such a show pony, you can see where Prue gets it from can’t you? Ha ha.
D was banging on this morning about what I want for Christmas but I cannot think of anything I need. I told him that I am successful in obtaining a new job I will need to buy some new clothes and that will be my gift but he does not regard clothing as a gift and is insisting I give him a few suggestions. I honestly cannot think of anything other than a peaceful day with family , friends, good food and plenty of fun and laughter. He was not impressed and I fear he will go out and buy me something anyway.
Have a fabulous week-end! 🙂
