Post Christmas Football.

Can't believe it is already the day after Boxing Day, now it is the countdown to the end of the year.

It will be loud here on Thursday, hope Spike and Marleen will cope as well as they did last year with the fireworks.

They are lying happily in their beds, playing with their toys and hoping we will give them some more of the delicious dog biscuits Richie baked for them last night.

We are having a nice relaxed day today, had a late lunch of fried egg, chips, slices of marinated crispy Tempe and fried bread and pickled onions and brown sauce.

Brilliant food, the haute cuisine of the English cafes, always used to like going to a greasy spoon in England.

Used to like ordering bacon, sausage, egg, mushrooms, beans and a fried slice (bread) and of course lots of hot sweet milky tea.

Occasionally a fruit crumble and custard as dessert.

We still have fry ups, now with slices of crisply fried Tempe and vegetarian sausages instead of bacon and meat sausages, sometimes we have fried slices of halumi (Cypriot cheese).

Football is on today, the post Christmas games; we have been watching the Arsenal v Aston Villa game.

In half time we watched an old episode of Dr. Who, even though we had both seen this one before it was still rather scary, I was glad Richie turned back to the game.

Still 0-0 and could end as 0-0 too as both teams are really battling with each other , as I typed that Fabregas scored a great goal for Arsenal.

What a game and getting better all the time now Arsenal are ahead, going to post this and watch the game.

Have a good day.

I love to hear about how the two of you get along so well. Richie cooked dog biscuits! That's so wonderful, especially for Spike and Marlene. Yes the countdown is on. Remember, on New Year's Eve we will be having a full blue moon (the last on was 19 years ago) - so prepare to howl at midnight!

Hi Webster,
The dogs love home baked best, I used to make them when I could use my hands.
Richie cooks their food too, they get tripe once a week and soya chunks and rice and veg and oats.
They get fish often, Richie get a whole fish which has been gutted, he filets it and cooks up everything else and whizzes it up, then cooks it up with oats and potatoes and rice, the dogs love their fish porridge.

Hi Mary,
Good you have had a relaxing day.

Hi Joan,
Porridge sounds like a good idea in cold weather like you are having.
What is a biathlon?.

Hi Sherry,
Sunday afternoon football is good, luckily the games I wanted to see were all played.

Thanks all you lovely people for coming by, hope you are all keeping warm and well.
