Who needs a million and a half pound firework display under the gaze of Big Ben, when you can have a mahoooosive giant blue glowstick for a pound from Poundland ……in a garden, in Wolverhampton ….. and still feel the party vibe! The “party vibe” was Darrell’s phraseology, I hasten to add mine, not mine …!!!

Well, we arrived safely home at around midday amidst glorious sunshine and blue skies, it was all quite romantic in a last afternoon of the year type way.
Everything Chez Castle Greysquirrel was just as we had left it, inside and out …….. except for a several very large boxes in the porch …… we may have been away, but Darrell have used his time, when he wasn’t gazing lovingly at Baby Iris to most excellent purpose …….
……. taking full advantage of not only Black Friday, but Pink Saturday, Purple Sunday, Panic Monday, Not So Panicky Tuesday, Burnt Sienna Wednesday and Off White Thursday …… to purchase some considered electrical items, to wit a new TV and various accompaniments …… which to be honest have been long overdue in the obtaining of! Now, we will be able to watch our televisual highlight of the year, The Eurovision Song Contest in near 3D quality ……. as well as our many other programmes of choice ….. it will be almost as if we are actually on the bus when we watch Coach Trip and as for Come Dine With Me ….. I think we might be able to even smell the food.
However, with all this technology comes a lot of remote controls, and I am the first to admit that I am a stranger to gizmotology, so Darrell has promised (in writing) that he will label each one as to its purpose!
Tonight, we are going for a New Years Eve meal as family tradition dictates, and Nigel is already planning his ten poppadum pile!!! But, before we go we are planning to leave a mahooooosive blue glowstick in our garden lantern ……..
We might post late again tomorrow ….. New Years Day ….. it all depends on what time we get to bed and then out of it!!!!!!
You’ll have to forgive us, we have fooled you ever so slightly ……. because, most fortuitously as it happens, we had a few extra Christmas posts in the can, as it were, to keep us going over the past few days ……. for, in real life, we have secretly been back to Evesham …..
….. we are properly back home, Chez Chateau Greysquirrel, later today, as we are pledged and promised to a meal at Codsall Spice, so we will be around, before we go out, to wish you all a Happy New Year before we see in a possibly heavy duty 2015 ………
