hope everybody is having a nice holiday season :). so far so good, chez loz; we have company for a couple of weeks here, & it's been nice. we had a really nice Christmas day/dinner at my parents' home. we're kicking around the idea of staying in for New Year's Eve & just inviting a few friends over to ring in the New Year with us.
this afternoon I spent a few hours with my Gran. I left later than expected & by then my back door (which I'd been trying to open so I could put my laptop bag on the back seat) was frozen shut, as it had been snowing again. I decided against forcing...
