feeling Christmassy?

Nope, feeling decidedly flat today. I had kind of imagined that the anticipation was building nicely and I would be able to do so much more this year than last. Then Mr M rang and said we should go to Farm Foods to get the frozen food and I said that would be good. He would pause briefly when he came home from work at 2pm and we would go then. Sounds fine doesn't it?
Peckingham Palace
I thought I had better go down in the garden and check on my chickens before we went, as it would be dark by the time I came back and it was then that I realised just how windy it really was. As I went down the steps I was caught by a powerful gust of wind and slammed against the wall. I didn't fall but it knocked the breath out of me for a moment or two. My girls were cowering in their covered run even though they have the whole of the garden to be in. They hate the wind. The flap of plastic you can see in the picture is secured behind the door now so their palace is quite snug.
I collected the eggs and went back into the house and when Mr M came in I realised that there was no way I could get into a car in weather like this. He didn't mind at all and promptly lay down on the settee and went to sleep. I feel decidedly flat because of it so I am going to bed soon and tomorrow we will have a new start.

I have just caught up with all your December posts, I love your writing so much. You make me smile and laugh and feel thoughtful. Thank you.
You, don't care? I think you care very much and about the 'right things'
