There is something about Christmas and a family gathering, that does fill you full of good cheer. As well as the turkey, the Christmas pudding, etc.etc. The troops flew in yesterday to be greeted by a tree, doing a passable imitation of the ground floor of Hamleys.
Mary was still a bit under the weather and slightly concerned about the outcome of all her efforts but she had no cause to be; the table groaned with plumtiousness.
I took some really naff pictures: not even being able to blame the alcohol, which had hardly begun to flow at this point. Anyway, excellent food, excellent company and a complete joy to see Safi and Zach once more and, of course, Laura. And truly great to have Hannah and Dean there as well. The Turkey was wonderful and the Christmas jug that only comes out at Christmas for the Christmas pudding made its annual appearance.
Today we are off to the Pantomime. Oh! Yes we are! Should be interesting to see the children’s take on such a good old British tradition. We trust you are all having a loveytime over the Christmas period.
Thanks for reading,
