Well its Christmas next week and I've got a stinker of a cold, plus its now gone to my chest and I'm coughing all the time, which is very annoying and painful. Have had to have the last few days off work with it, which would have been useful, but all I want to do is sleep, as I am coughing most of the night. Doesn't seem to bother Ian - he just sleeps through it!

Just looked down at the puppies, Pepsi & Max (aka Beelzebub & Mephistopheles, the Creatures from the Black Lagoon!) They were wrestling and Pepsi had Max in a full nelson- they are so funny to watch when they play together. They are being very good today (it cant last) Neither has done a pooh off the pads and little Maxsie has only had one wet accident on the carpet which is such a relief as they were a nightmare yesterday and really drove us to the wall! But they are so sweet we have to forgive them and just hope this 'phase' wont last much longer - of course we realise we are probably just kidding ourselves! This could go on for a very long time, particularly with Pepsi being a Westie. Max is still very young at only 10 weeks but caught on to the puppy pads from the word go, he seems much more mature than Pepsi, despite being 3 months younger, but I think Scottie dogs are much more cool, calm and collected than the 'mad' Westie!

I spoke too soon - just found a Pepsi pooh out on the landing carpet, despite there being a pad only a foot away- he just doesn't seem to get it! Anyway they have both been banished to the Black Lagoon (the puppy pen) for the time being.

We watched the Royal Variety Performance last night which was very entertaining and saw a medly from The Producers with Nathan Lane and Lee Evans. It looked great fun and I've always loved the movie so I checked out Ebay for tickets and found a package with good seats and overnight accommodation in a very nice 5 star hotel called the Langham. It's just off Regent Street so is very handy for shopping and sightseeing as well. So I've booked this up for us as a special treat for New Years Day. I will have the chance to wear my new full length fur coat (faux of course!) which I've just got off Ebay so I'll be able to sashay around town in that - great fun!

Ian has just come down from the loft where he has spent the last hour or so putting down loftboards so we can use it as a proper store room. Mainly for Xmas decs, up until now we have just been piling them around the hatch. We seem to have accumulated an awful lot. I was amazed at the number of boxes that came down this year. We have also got a lot of my mums stuff piled in the spare room which can now go into the loft - and probably never see the light of day again! sadly I just can't bring myself to get rid of it.
