Home again

Home again after a quiet, but nice, Christmas with my folks. The drive back yesterday was hideous, though. A combination of snow on the A1 and people heading for the sales meant the roads were sluggish. What was a 3 hour journey on the way up became a 5 hour journey back down. We comforted ourselves on arrival with a huge nosh-up at The Wharf pub.

Today, we've been farm-shopping again to lay in stocks so we can relax for the rest of the holiday. Then we pulled boots on and went out for a walk on the hard frosty ground. It was a relief to be doing some exercise after a lot of sofa-sitting.

Tomorrow we intend to have our own private 'Christmas Day'. It will start with a good cup of coffee, followed by fry up and a big walk, then roast pork (no poultry left unsurprisingly.)
