I don’t know if other people suffer from the same problem I have but all my life I have always had the problem that during any holiday period when I have been at home I always reach the last day with lots more left to do than can be reasonably fitted in the time available. Nothing vital I guess but at the start of the Christmas recess I had a rough idea of what I would like to achieve during the recess and with Parliament reconvening tomorrow I still have several tasks I would have liked to have completed. Never mind. I have done most of the essential items and anyway trying to tidy my study is a bit like the job of painting the Forth Bridge.
I have been busy this weekend fitting in as much as I can. Mainly jobs around the house before my attention becomes fixed again on Parliamentary business. Yesterday morning we took CeeCee down to his dog training class. Because of the snow and the Christmas and New Year holidays it has been about a month since our last class but CeeCee performed about as well as could be expected ( although I have to admit he was a dismal failure at the fun test of trying to bring a sausage back that was thrown for him to retrieve. It was gone in a moment! ).
This morning I attended St. Anne’s church in Tottington where it was the Parade service. We had a good attendance particularly of the cubs, scouts, brownies and guides.
And so another calendar year gets underway.
