Just got back from an excellent London's New Years Day Parade.
The weather was better than last year, no rain and quite mild.
I am still amazed at the number of marching bands and cheerleaders that make the journey from the USA. Such enthusiasm.

Christmas was OK, although my 9 year old niece has NO manners. New Year's Eve was fun with a small house party hosted by a friend but unfortunately my maternal grandmother died on New Year's Day so not a great start to the year.

Meh! Christmas was a bit of a wash out, Martyns perents were ill (nothing too serious) just elderly people being stubborn and refusing advice on medical care.,but they are now slowly recovering.
Tim and Caz are still being spoiled brats, despite being given the cash they asked for so rudely , we arrived the day before christmas eve, all smiles, with presents from us, and various uncles and aunts, handed them over, and got a very frosty lift home from Caz, and Tim, and had sod all in return, no card, no present nothing. Hoping next week and the return to work makes Martyn and I a bit happier, and less time to brood on a worrying and upsetting Crhistmas.

Sorry about the loss of your Grandma Jax.

I walked down to Woolwich today.
A sort of celebration of achieving a weight loss of 4 stone and meeting my interim target.

Disaster!! Have run out of Pimms!! :shock: How am I supposed to recover from the horrors of a Monday without the necessary alcoholic tipple required for retention of sanity, such as it is . . .

Why is the Pimms gone?!

The chappie who invented Pimms went to my school before hopping up North to Edinburgh to be trained as priest

Obviously this drove him to drink, so he returned to London, started his famous oyster bar, and invented the tipple that is his namessake

As a consequence of his gratitude to his old school, to this day his bequest of 'three dozen bottles, annually, to be distributed amongst masters and senior boys' continues...
