Wishing you a very happy Christmas, wherever in the world you may be.
It’s taken me a while to get to the PC to write a post, its not been a regular sort of Christmas day. My mum hasn’t felt up to coming up for the day, so I cooked her a dinner and we took it round.
Actually it’s probably been as well we haven’t had a houseful, the house has been in chaos, it certainly looks nothing like those glossy magazine images of the ‘perfect Christmas’: in the kitchen Tom is building a mountain bike out of his new bike frame, with help from Mr Uhdd who is nursing a bad back . To get the Turkey in the oven I had to move cans of defrosting woodworm killer that Mr Uhdd wanted to use in the loft space yesterday but were frozen solid (wrestling with insulating mineral wool in the loft is how he got the bad back) and to get to the PC you have to crawl commando style round the back of the sofa so as not to interfere with Joe’s Xbox Kinect game. (I’m liking what I see, of the Kinect, instead of ‘gaming’ from a position of slumped on the sofa there is much physical activity and laughter. Yay!)
We shall eat later, everything is either cooked or prepared, so the hard work is done. I’m ready to relax a bit now.
