Did not do the painting today, instead I finished off the Christmas shopping and wrapped everything ready to go under the tree once we put it up.  House looks like it was picked up and shaken but I am going to tidy it after swimming this afternoon.

I may bring the wine drinking forward to before making dinner.  Still need to make the Christmas cakes so they have time to mature before cutting so will do that later on also.
