“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men,

Gang aft agley,” as the poet said.

Yesterday afternoon about 3.30 as I was beginning to assemble the Christmas decoration I was intending to show you today and moaning to myself about the low light levels for taking photographs, my son arrived unexpectedly.

Of course I was glad to see him and we did lots of things including putting up the Christmas tree.


But he didn’t leave till 9pm at which point I decided the decoration would have to wait till another day, maybe even another year!

Here is a bit of a peak at some of the component parts.


Yes! my table is a mess.


And now I better go and have lunch and then do some housework.
