Franklin spent the day at the vets having his blood sugar levels monitored. At last levels are going down his still on a very high dose of insulin but with the next vet day in three weeks we may at last be getting a balance.
This week has been meaty Christmas pork orders and getting the beef back mid week meant feeling a bit chilly in the butchery and cold room. pick ups and deliveries made and a turkey/beef swap this morning our meat is sorted. The tree was in Figeac car park, a beef pick up point.
knitted presents have been made.
Wreath making from my collected greenery while walking the dogs. Each year the mad English woman scrambles up banks with seceters, dogs on retractable leads which get tangled in shrubbery. all pleased when back home, it would be so much easier without dogs but I do get two jobs done at the same time.
A bargain Christmas tree brought for 12 euros, normally our artistic director dresses the tree but as she's not back till tomorrow I went for the colourful bauble look with dare I say a set of coloured lights - we have a box of so many sets that semi or don't work and I could not be arsed to fiddle around detecting dud bulbs.
More greenery was put up on the beam and fire place.
The cake has been marzipaned and iced ready for Miss F to finish off with creative decoration, don't think the poor father Christmas will cut the mustard.
Christmas stockings were quickly sewn to hod presents the animals - bonkers I know- as if animals cod sew let alone by presents!
