I can't believe this is the last day of 2009 already. Hope you all had a good year. You commenters have contributed to my life significantly -- you teach me, tell me off and cheer me just when I need it.
I went to a neighbor's party last night and drank way too much mulled wine. I later found out it had brandy in it. I'm supposed to help my son with his Dickens course work but I told him he needs to wait until Mommy's hangover has improved.
Before the party, we played Monopoly but Dizzy the cat kept interfering:
In the end, my daughter got all my property and bankrupted me and won the game.
I have to make soup for a New Year's Party tonight. I found a great recipe for a Brie Champagne Oyster soup that I will make. If it's as good as it sounds, I'll put the recipe up later.
I was going to take Mr. Christmas Tree down today but it's been so dark and rainy in England that he's the only brightness in the house. I'll put him on today and take him down tomorrow.
I'll miss him when he goes.
