So thats the event over with , usual anticlimax lol . Ended up with 6 for dinner a very manageable number .I got 3 little competition prizes xmas eve so that was the extent of my xmas other than a huge bar of chocolate and a chocolate orange . Daughter informs me that next year shes cooking and i can do buffet boxing day . Good job she mentioned it as i had been planning to donate all my buffet dish pyrex in the New Year as we dont have guests anymore . We have pretty much lost the last of our friends through Covid , not through death mainly through divorce and our lack of risk taking . Society as a whole does seem to be changing . the visably crippled are expected to lock themselves away and be forgotten about , the same with the very elderly. The biggest risk in our lives is other halfs endless hospital visits , not a thing can be done about that , you cant do online MRIs and endless transfusions on line , though other half has mentioned hes more likely to die from sanitizer poisoning than Covid .
On the daughter front she should never mention she wanted a king sized quilt at short notice because this was the result all from jumble sale and family clothing
