On the fifth and sixth day of Christmas

On the fifth day of Christmas my son gave to me a stomach bug that meant I was knocked of my feet all day Christmas. So that’s the main reason for the lack of posting after saying I’d be posting more. I’m better now but it was a bad time sorry for not posting but I have some great ideas for posts.

But it meant no Christmas dinner for anyone in the Leighton household and a fairly rubbish Christmas. This weekend were going to try and do it again.

Before I got ill I found this magical place that’s like the internet where you can buy things but its without a computer and you walk into them instead of browsing. Its very strange as they also accept paper as well as credit cards, and they call them shops. It was a very exciting find for me, I don’t normally have time to go to them

So on the sixth day I got a really cool bottle of Port. I’m not a big port fan but at this time of the year I love a port and a cheese board (particularly a good Stilton). So this is a real Christmas present. OK only another SIX! To go.
