One down....

Yesterday I...

(i) Took down the Christmas tree (yes, I know there are twelve Days of Christmas, but, frankly, I've had enough)

(ii) Took down last year's Harry Potter calendar and put up this year's calendars (three of them) with artwork by Picasso and Dali.

(iii) Watched the latest Poirot mystery starring David Suchet. (You'd think by now that Poirot would have worked out that by exposing the murderer in a room full of innocent bystanders you give him or her the heaven-sent opportunity to grab a hostage and cause considerable unpleasantness- Lord knows, it's happened often enough- but no, he, Poirot, keeps on setting up those theatrical denouements of his.)

One down. 364 to go.
