Being occupied with study, groceries and writing New Year cards, the weather was no problem at all. Bert had to work and on the radio the TOP 2000. The music brings back pleasant as well as nostalgic memories making me feel a bit alone at some point in the afternoon, and I went for a walk past the castle, graveyard and church.
After my walk I made tea. The salmon and Pommes Parisiennes both needed time in the oven. Every ten minutes I took swapped the one for the other, which worked perfectly. The Brussels sprouts were less laborious.
