Writing this as we are being buffered like crazy with ten foot high waves rushing down the canal !!   Very windy here on Audlem Embankment but the sky is blue with shining sun.   Like most others, we had quite a mild Christmas and still no ice on the canal !

We haven’t done much over the holidays except walking, eating and watching telly.   Oh, we did go to the Audlem carol singing last Thursday which was nice but that’s about it.  Not eaten everything in the “Christmas cupboard” yet though but definitely going down although last night we fancied something "plain" so fishfinger sarnies for dinner - fab!

Skype’d with Amy on Christmas Day which was lovely - obviously being in Thailand no Christmas holidays but she does get a few days for New Year so she is going with friends to one of the Thai islands for sun, sea and sand.

Well, hope your New Year celebrations go off with a bang and talk to you in 2012 !

Happy Holidays !
