Mal took Ellie for a walk while I went to Westwood. I bought the food for tomorrow as Lou and the kids will be round and I was running out of vegetables. Again the shops were busy.
In the afternoon we walked round to the allotment and dug up a few potatoes to see what they were like. There was also some beetroot so we have sampled that. There are things to dig up and a LOT of clearing, in fact a lot of work to do there! We noticed we even had mice in one of the compost bins!
We stayed in for New Year and had a drink or two.

It was Josie’s 10th birthday and so we all went to Raise Oriental Buffet in Sheerness, one of their favourite places to eat. Tariq offered to drive us which was really nice of him. Wow, the food there was something else , they had all sorts, the Thai was good and they even had turkey roast with all the trimmings. I stuck to the King Prawns, Mussels and squid and also sushi…..so good. The staff put on “Happy Birthday” and brought out a cake for Josie. I think she got quite embarrassed with everyone singing and clapping and it did go on a bit!
We all ate so much that we then went to Minster on Sea for a walk along the sea front.
Back to Lou and Rhys’s house and Jo had her second birthday cake!
I went to Westwood to get the rest of Josie’s birthday presents. It was OK when I arrived but started getting very busy so that was when I came home! Ellie is quite happy with all her toys but we bought her an antler for Christmas. She promptly opened it in Rhys’s garden.
We went indoors and she obviously buried it and we couldn’t find it! That was a waste of £10 but she does have plenty of other things to keep her amused.
