Last week I wrote on my blog about Chris being Crystal Palace's lucky charm this season – he hasn't been to a game so far that we have lost. The good results continued last Saturday as we beat Cardiff City 2 – 0… maybe they will have to rename the club Christal Palace!!??!!
We have an away game against Chelsea tomorrow which we won't be attending, but this was Wilfy checking out the opposition earlier in the week. He was very funny looking for the football behind the television. He has a couple of little balls that he likes to chase but his favourite is still chasing sweet wrappers.
We have just moved the furniture to put the Christmas tree up and there were about fifty wrappers under the two sofas, along with assorted bits of pot pourri carried there and discarded by him.
We nipped out this morning to choose our tree and Chris took it home while Daniel and I visited the local DIY store to buy some shatterproof baubles… I am definitely not risking the beautiful glass collection we have amassed over the years and, the way I look at it, Dan will need some to decorate his tree next year when he has his own home and his own tree.
Wilfy has already been batting the branches of the tree and drinking from the water reservoir in the base it's standing in and that was within five minutes of it going up. I fear mayhem on Christmas Day when Sophie and her friend Gilly will be joining us with their two cats Oskar and Milo… EEK!!!
I haven't really done much in the way of Christmas yet because of all the stuff to do regarding our imminent house move, but thanks for all the cards you have been sending in and I will get round to writing some this weekend. I stopped at the card shop the other day to buy some cards and the lady behind me in the queue said, 'Crikey you're going to have wrist-ache writing all those.' I smiled and didn't mention signing five thousand books in the space of two days!!!
Well the other good result I had this week was from the hospital. I'm pleased to be able to tell you that there is another 65% improvement on what are now very minimal levels. I'm not quite in remission yet, which I must confess I was hoping for as an early Christmas present, but I am still responding well to the oral chemotherapy drugs… maybe I'll make remission at my next test in three months.
After my shows today, Fashion on Friday featuring Nina Leonard at 5pm and Price's Candles at 7pm, featuring the fabulous bargain that is the TSV (if it is still around) I am off for five days, apart from the Presenter Christmas lunch on Wednesday, which I will be heading to directly after the dentist!!!! If you are still Christmas shopping with us there is a fab day of beauty products on Sunday, including a Laura Geller TSV.
Enjoy, much love Julia xx
