It's just after 04.00 and I've been awake for an hour. Quite cold but am warm enough in my thick fleecy dressing gown and slippers. Just been looking out of the window in the spare bedroom....clear sky with lots and lots of stars....a house across the field has lights on downstairs (they're farm workers so I guess they're getting ready for work) and it looks a bit foggy in the light from their windows shining on the field. There's an owl hooting in the trees to the right of the field.
Betty lifted her head and looked at me when I came downstairs just now, but then snuggled back down into her bed. She went to the groomers yesterday, she smells gorgeous (much better than the fox or badger poo she rolled in at the weekend!) and her fur is so lovely and soft.
Went to Clarks Village at Street yesterday (it's a designer shopping outlet, one of those places filled with lots of posh expensive shops that sell off last season's stock at lower prices....still expensive though). And bought....a bar of chocolate from the Cadbury shop - a gift for a friend, not for us. Nothing else took my fancy, so that's all I spent. It wasn't nearly as busy as I thought it might be, I guess most people went on Black Friday or at the weekend.
Morrisons are doing whole salmon on their usual holiday offer of £5 a kilo, think we might go and get one - salmon is my favourite fish, I'd much rather have that than steak, husband would always choose steak though, although he does like salmon as well.
It's my beloved Aunt's birthday today, she would have been 73. That's probably why I can't sleep.
