It was Christmas, I was with the parents, but my sister, her husband and her three daughters came on boxing day. All was good. Came home, had to have the pump in the central heating fixed. My car is not good, but I've found someone* who seems competent to fix it - apparently the Saab dealer I got to replace the head gasket two years ago didn't put everything back right - I wasn't very happy at the time with the work and haven't gone back to them ever - which is why it's been leaking oil and now is stalling.
New year's eve I went to the 'mega party' at TJs, since I don't know anyone in Newport, which was as good as it may be. Not being a party person and all that, but it was better than sitting at home alone. My new year's resolution is to find some friends who don't live a couple of hundred miles away.
So I have a new year, a courtesy car another classic 900 in grey (like Colin Firth's in Love Actually, but lacking the Portuguese babe. Pity.)
* I could rant about accessibility of their web site, but won't. They seem like nice people.
