Finally made a start on

Finally made a start on my Christmas cards last night. I seem to have an incredibly long list of cards to write, and so far I’ve managed three. Not a great start, but a step along the card-writing path.
Yesterday evening was spent arranging my new Christmas tree (complete with silver bead chain and white and silver baubles), going to the Waitrose account-holders’ evening with my brother to purchase a few presents, some provisions and a treat or two, as well as sampling all the free tastings that were on offer. This was followed by wrapping a couple of presents, as well as long online chats with Sarah and Penn, an awesome beef and vegetable stir-fry and a couple of beers whilst listening to John Peel and Gilles Peterson on Radio 1. I even managed to get some laundry done.
