Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were spent quietly as planned and I had a pleasant time. Energy levels are low so today will be more of the same.
I should have been taking part in a car treasure hunt but too many participants are poorly so it has been cancelled. I admit that I'm relieved as I would have pulled out anyway and the friend who organises the hunt would have been grumpy with me, no matter what the reason. This way, I'm not the focus of his grumpiness!
We were all supposed to bring a contribution to a Boxing Day picnic to share with the others so that's what I'll be eating today. I've defrosted some vegetable soup which I'll have hot with some crusty bread, and then a selection of cold meat and nibbles. It's an easy day as far as the food is concerned thankfully as I don't feel much like cooking a big meal.
I'm enjoying the Graham Norton book. It's not a Christmas story but coincidentally starts in the quiet period just after the Christmas celebrations are finished. It's the first of his books I've read and I keep catching myself mimicking Norton's voice in my head as I'm reading it. I can't comment on the story yet although I like what I've read so far, but I love his writing style and will look to see if he has written anything else.
I'm looking forward to watching the 'Would I Lie To You' Christmas special tonight and if the timings work out, will also watch the first of the Royal Institute Christmas Lectures as well. Apart from that it'll be a lot of reading and plenty of naps!
