Today I had to finish our tax. I turned on the heater in my office and locked myself away. While I should have done it months ago, at least they’re not late and, hopefully, finished. I say ‘hopefully’ because you never know what the accountant will come back with. Mirinda was likewise locked away in the library working on her DBA so it’s not like she missed me.
The tax took up most of my day though I did go up to town for the first time since Monday. The weather was a bit misty and grey and, for the first time this Christmas, actually cold.
In Starbucks I saw Lizzy, Sue, Chantelle, Dan and Elinor. I then went shopping. Then home again. Life was back to normal.
On the walk home I was beginning to regret not wearing my thicker fleece and gloves as the mist turned to fog and started chilling everything in sight.
Back at home, Mirinda had a blazing fire warming up the library. It was all very hygge.
For dinner I decided to break open the Fortnum and Mason cooked ham. I cut two slices and fried them. I then popped eggs on top and served them on a bed of stir fried veg. It was very nice.
