Had a get together last night with the neighbours in our outside courtyard – mulled wine and nibbles.  My older granddaughters Meg and Ella helped me put up the Christmas decorations this morning. All the old favourites plus a few newcomers.  Something missing – the small Christmas tree we stand on a coffee table – and I started looking in the most unlikely places.  Peering under the bed, I was met with a pair of eyes – the cat really didn’t like the upheaval and had gone into hiding – but no tree. Mystery indeed.  Busy with the edits for two e-books ‘Family Values’ and ‘Secrets and Lies’ with the new e-book ‘What Friends Are For’ waiting in the wings for me to start editing after Christmas.
