It’s been really lovely to do some Christmas decorating this week. Nothing makes a room more homey than decorating for an occasion. My Nutcracker family is expanding as well with the addition of a tall silver Nutcracker.
Joke of the week:
Second joke of the week:
My excitement at having my new dining table and chairs delivered quickly turned to despair when I saw the chairs coming into my house in boxes…flat boxes. The instructions are so sketchy and while the furniture looks nice, it’s not exactly made all that well. Some of the bolts are hard to screw in because the threads aren’t right and on some occasions, the hole I’m screwing a bolt into seems almost too small for the bolt. I have only two chairs together out of six because doing more than one at a time is out of the question. The entire experience is extremely frustrating.
So, I hear you ask, I thought this was meant to be a joke. Oh, it is. A bad joke.
And I can’t do anything about it because once the chair pad is nailed onto the the frame, the chair can no longer be pulled apart and put back together again…not that I was a fan of that option anyway!
To be honest, pushed under the table, I can’t even notice. But it bothers me, a lot! Just on principle.
What I’ve read this week:
What I’ve been watching:
This is the second season with the ‘new’ actors and they all felt familiar this time around. More’s the pity, because the next season is seeing a change of cast again for the purposes of representing further ageing. The Queen is still my favourite. I think I enjoyed this season the most since the very first one. My favourite episode was Fagan, episode 5. There was so much in that one about the push for economy at the expense of welfare and community well-being. I felt it showed the Queen at her best and Thatcher at her worst.

Until next week… 😊📚☕
