Had a great night criticising the quality but not the enthusiasm of the dancing in the Village Hall where I was guest caller of the dances. I had a great time but after visiting our neighbour for fireworks and drinks I started to feel unwell so came home with the gang and went to bed. January 01 was a washout for me as I slept all day. I left the guests to cook for themselves and I hear that the steak pies were a massive success.

I was off work until 11th Jan and lost 8Kg in weight which I could afford with more to spare. What a nightmare!
