Stop. Breathe.

Time to chill.

My lovely husband got me a a sport video camera. This is wonderful timing since my compact camera just died. Hopefully my blogs will feature more videos now.

My lovely friends Helen and Theresa gave me a new laptop – well two years old, but new to me and very. very much better than poor old Tiddles who is (I think) about 10 years old. This one will run Facebook, Twitter and WordPress. I’m writing this post on it.

So what do you call a new, powerful Tiddles? Tiger.

Presents have been given. Geographically distant relatives have been phoned and close ones visited. Most of the turkey has been eaten and the bones are boiling for nice, slimming soup. Like last year, we were too stuffed for pudding after turkey, so we had it today and very nice too. I’ve even done some laundry and bought fresh veggies.

I finally have time for me.

What is this strange sensation I’ve been feeling all afternoon?

Oh yes. It’s relaxation.
