I had a nice afternoon today enjoying some things that had arrived in the post at long last!
First of all our latest delivery of UK TV programmes from my parents. Normally they arrive about 4 days after they post them, but this latest batch was slowed down by the volume of Christmas post and took 2 and a half weeks to get here, which is a long time to wait between episodes of Cranford!
Secondly we had a delivery from British Cornershop... Brillo pads, baked beans, Branston pickle, salad cream and tea bags (it's funny what you miss!) and although I had forgotten to order some mince pies, I did a deal with one of the wives who had bought several boxes.
Things are starting to get very quiet in the village. Jim and the rest of the staff at the base finished work today, but I'm still in the office till Friday. Far from winding down, we've had one of the busiest weeks of the year, so I'm looking forward to heading up to Canmore on Friday!
