I'm waiting in for the egg man this morning so it's as good a time as any to do the last bits of housework before the big day. I'll also get the ham cooked as well ... this was a substitution on my last delivery and it's double the size I ordered at no extra cost. I fancy having ham for my Christmas Eve meal so cooking it today will give me time to slice it up and freeze the extras.
I finished all my doorstep deliveries yesterday but am still expecting flying visits from friend Julie and a couple of my sister's children. I had a surprise visit from David, the young man from the youth band who I've written umpteen references for over the last few years. He starts his new job in January so popped round with a thank you gift for me, which was completely unexpected but very much appreciated. I enjoyed catching up with his news and it was good to see him again and to see how he excited he was about this new job.
The forecast is for rain on and off all day so it's unlikely I will get out for a walk, but it's one possibility for this afternoon should the weather decide to play nicely. Today's Advent task is to 'breathe and relax' and the card details a five minute breathing exercise that I'm familiar with and do regularly anyway. I've sorted out some (very simple) Christmas carols piano music so do want to play through those this afternoon. I doubt I'll do much more as it will do me good to relax after the upset at the weekend with the neighbour ... she seems to have given up bothering me, fingers crossed, so that's good news.
