On the 12th day after Christmas
My Christmas treat will be................
Oh dear another book
The last day of interesting new things. One each day since Christmas Day (NOT the whole list everyday as someone thought!)
"Limit the number of people you come into contact with" is the main piece of advice for avoiding picking up the virus. I was thinking how easy it is to isolate when you live alone and don't go to work and how glad I am that my hobbies are mostly things done at home.
One such hobby is doing the puzzle pages of the East Anglian Daily Times. (My sister passed lots onto me a few weeks ago and will save more for me) There are 3 crosswords that I can't do, and a couple of weird things I don't bother with, but also a word spiral puzzle where each word starts with the last letter of the last word, an Arrow-word puzzle and a word wheel where you have to make words always using the centre letter. But my favourites are the Battleships, The 3 Sudokus (Hard Medium and Easy) and the Codeword. And because my sister is so organised she always gives me the papers all in order so when I do the codeword I can check I've worked out the right letter for the right number......I don't cheat...honestly.
How about this to cheer a Very Wet January day when the only thing to do is to stay at home. It's one of the hot chocolate melts treats, the mini marshmallows float to the top as the chocolate ball melts and I topped it all with squirty cream. It was very good.
