Saturday being New Year's Day felt more like a Sunday to us. We had a nice roast beef dinner and cracked open another bottle of prosecco, pulled a couple of the remaining Christmas crackers and still we had no room for the Christmas pudding we couldn't manage to eat at Christmas. Sunday didn't feel like a Sunday either and our day started with the bad news of someone's passing which made us feel very sad for our family members. We'd already decided to take down and pack away the few Christmas decorations and get back to normal and not wait until twelfth night. The weather wasn't good and we would have preferred to go out and blow away the cobwebs but went ahead and packed away those decorations. Monday was another Bank Holiday and we just had a lazy day at home, the housework could wait.
Tilly had an appointment at the grooming parlour today and I was a little anxious about it but this new place are very caring and when I asked is she had been good they said she is very fidgety and it takes two to groom her but she's been okay. I'm happy now that this can be her regular grooming place and she only needs to return in eight weeks time. I've put her jumper on her as the weather has turned extremely cold and unfortunately you can't tell from the photo that she's been groomed but she has and Tilly is now flat out on the sofa cuddled up next to hubby.
I must tell you this. What a performance we had when we returned home. Hubby couldn't get out of his coat as the zip had jammed about a quarter of the way down and I had to literally cut him out of it. We'd bought the coat online a couple of years ago and he only started wearing it this year. Firstly he realised the hood wouldn't fasten as the velcro had two smooth sides and then he found what looked like a knife cut in the back of the coat. It was from a reputable high street store so we can only assume it was a second and I can't remember how much I paid for it. It's now in the bin. We'd already decided we needed to buy him a new winter coat and one that he can try on and examine in store but we're waiting for the children to go back to school so that the shops will be quieter. You couldn't make it up and there never seems to be a dull moment in this house :)
