1 A beautiful song was chosen by my sister for our Father’s funeral nine years ago. It is nine years ago today that he died in St John’s Hospice, Doncaster, where he was so incredibly well looked after for 17 days that he asked, “This is a wonderful hotel. Can I afford it?” Today is the day that I play ‘The Ballad of Joe Hill‘ in remembrance of my much-missed and much-loved Dad and today I have played Daisy’s choice as well, ‘Under a December Sky’ by Beth Nielson Chapman and I give you a photo of today’s beautiful December sky to go with the lovely words and music.
2 The lovely Mr S has put up the Christmas lights tree in the garden today – such a cheery sight.
3 A delicious and simple supper tonight of Chicken and Leek Risotto with Toasted Cashew Nuts.
