OUT WITHE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW
Kelly isn't the only person at our xmas eve party. Some have been and gone on to a club, some have gone home to babysit grandchildren and some are in the snug having a go at the target shooting game. But it was grand and we got to bed later than usual and so rose late on xmas day...very slowly and carefully. The pressies were duly unwrapped and the garments put on. I think the hat has a moose on it and of course the apron has a grand Santa. Tigger didn't get any gifts so I shared my "angry bird" with her. If you squeeze it, it makes the sort of noises that fascinate cats.
I stand here, blocking the view of the xmas tree and ready to have a go in the kitchen. A turkey is over the top for a dinner for two so we roasted a lovely bit of sirloin and all that goes with it.
It is now Boxing day and after watching a couple of hundred fancy-dressed people plunge into the sea at Seaton Carew we have returned to have tea and xmas cake and complete the procedure for putting the old Fuji camera away in a drawer and installing the new Lumix.
These are the last of the fujipics on this blog. I hope that the new one will produce better close-ups and clearer images generally. The human factor will still be important, but the new camera does seem to have "greater intelligence". The big question is "Can I match it?"
Hope you all had a great xmas day.
Cheers for now Gillian
