This is too too silly -- but great fun :) - Helen's journal and online home

This is too too silly -- but great fun :)
Thanks to [personal profile] rymrytr for posting this happy little Christmas song.

We have had our usual quiet Christmas here. I spoke to members of my family on the phone this morning and then we ate a big lunch of roast chicken (G hates turkey), stuffing, roast potatoes, assorted veggies and Christmas pud. Since then I have not done much, just caught up with all the LJ I didn't have time to read properly while I was away and I've also done some knitting while watching the Sherlock Holmes on TV. This was the Moffat modern version, which I recorded and thought I would re-watch because there is a new season coming soon. :)

Tomorrow (Boxing Day) I will be driving up to see my Dad on the North Wales coast. My brother will also be visiting, so we will have a family catchup session. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to make it because the cough I had in London swiftly turned into a nasty cold. It's not that I would be too ill to travel, but I didn't want to pass it on to my 90-year-old dad. However, yesterday I was over the worst and today I've hardly coughed or blown my nose all day, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Anyway, I hope all my LJ friends out there had a good day, whether it was spent celebrating, working or just relaxing.

Hope you have fun on Boxing Day. We're just gearing up for a trip to the shops and waiting for the cricket to start...

I had a nice trip up to my dad's. Not much traffic on the road and the weather was just about good enough for my brother and I to have our traditional Boxing Day walk on Prestatyn beach. It was a bit blowy, but the rain held off.

Scary! All real objects have been superseded!

I can't visualize what "life" will be like when the 10 year old, turns 50!

It is a scary thought, isn't it?

So much of what we take for granted now was science fiction when I was at school. Even the cities are starting to get some of the features that appeared in SF back then, like trains that have no drivers!
