Animal Aid this year because that's where I adopted Lucky & Phoebe) have arrived & I hope to have them written in the next week or so. I'll set up the Christmas tree tomorrow as well. I have a small pine tree in a pot that I'll bring inside & decorate. Abby never went near the tree in previous years, I'm not so sure about Lucky & especially Phoebe so we'll see how long the decorations last. I found Phoebe asleep on the top shelf of the pantry the other day. I have no idea how she got in there.
Anyway, back to books. Last year I enjoyed lots of 19th century stories as well as some romance. This year is looking more 20th century. I'm very excited about the Stella Gibbons reprints from Vintage. Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm is a volume of short stories. Although only the title story takes place at the famous Cold Comfort Farm, the reviews have been enthusiastic in the Guardian & the Independent & I'm looking forward to reading it.
So, I'm all set for a month of reading, listening to far too many Christmas carols, watching my favourite Christmas movies again & wondering how long the angel on top of the Christmas tree is going to survive Phoebe's attentions. I also have a new gardening enterprise to keep me busy. I'll post some photos of that in a couple of days.
