It has been Christmas business as usual at my house, and my time has been consumed by shopping, visiting friends and relatives, cleaning, baking, and entertaining. The big downside of doing lots is that there is almost no time for writing, even though there is plenty to write about. We have had three sets of guests over for three course meals in the last four days. That is a lot of cooking and a hell of a lot of dishes. On top of that I haven’t even started preparing for Christmas dinner! Tomorrow will be another busy day, starting the dessert and brining the turkey. The excitement is building, most of the presents are wrapped, and my room is tidier than it has been in some time. On top of that, I sold another three rings with a view to further sales in the New Year. After reinvesting most of the money in equipment, I am finally in the black. This is going to be a short post, but more will follow tomorrow. Merry Christmas!
