A Happy 2017 message bought to you courtesy of a banner from the outside of the supermarket my son works in.
Unfortunately the bus service wasn't in operation early enough to get him to work on time so we dropped him there this morning.
He took a packed suitcase with him as after his shift he was travelling to stay with friends for a few days.
Time away, what a great way for him to start the new year.
Not long after arriving back home S was dropped off, she had been invited to a New Year's eve sleepover and judging by how tired she looked much fun had been had.
For me the first day of the year hasn't involved much more than a little light pottering and two very enjoyable hours flumped on the sofa with G watching the cracking BBC adaptation of The Witness for the Prosecution.

So what's in store for January?
We have plans for a day out next weekend, T has a young driver lesson booked for another weekend and most excitingly G and I have a weekend away in London right at the end of the month.
But for now the sofa beckons again as Sherlock is back.
