Bloody Mary Day @ 10:04

Today, according to Days Of the Year is Bloody Mary day. I've never had a bloody mary. The thought of drinking cold alcoholic tomato soup turns my stomach. But I guess that's the idea.

In case you missed it, 2016 has passed. Eyes blinking, stumbling about and tripping over decades of discarded shopping trolleys, Ford Cortina parts and used syringes we enter a new year like we might exit an extra long dark tunnel. Things might happen, things might not.


Just before our annual post-festive shopping binge, the fridge decided to pack up. It had been a noisy thing, chuntering and rattling like an old train. I was rather fond of the old thing, it having been the third fridge freezer I had ever bought. It's strange how the older we get the more excited we get about new mundane appliances and fittings like fridge freezers and carpets.

I didn't like the old fridge freezer much at all, I preferred the little one we had at the flat, at least it didn't pretend to be better than it was, unlike our recently deceased one did. I'm really liking this new one though, mostly for its near silent running :D

I haven't got a fridge freezer and only have a small freezer so I envy you - noisy or not!

Btw, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
