We had an early start today due to the fact that a supplier, Beenhakker was going to deliver the new cushion for the shower chair.
At 09.30 the doorbell rang and it was the engineer from Beenhakker with the new cushion, which he expertly attached to the back of the shower chair.
By the sound of his voice he sounded very friendly; Richie and he were very animatedly talking about the dogs that were playing around them.
Not too long after he left the phone rang and it was our friend John from Glasgow, telling me that he would be here on the 8th of December for a week.
He told me that if was anything we would like Scotland then I should send him an e-mail and he would see if they can get things we ask for.
We are both looking forward tremendously to seeing John in December, it will be special to see him again; we are both excited about the prospect.
Tonight Richie is going to start preparing the fruit for our Christmas cake as well as Christmas pudding, so more exciting things to look forward to.
I know I will have to wait a bit longer yet, but I do like the whole Christmas season my favourite days are 19, 20, and 21 of December.
