Not around much I'm afraid. Let me see if I can remember...

No idea what happened Monday. Tuesday I was working late. Yesterday there was a (very lovely) Christmas Concert in the Cathedral during which the church choir sang (incl. Darcy), and tonight is the Cherub's Christmas Play. (This facebook post gives an incredibly accurate picture!!)

Tomorrow Miss M's friend S arrives (I may nickname her 'Adopted Daughter' as that's more or less her position in the family I reckon - she's here for Christmas. <3), and I THINK I have posted all the cards/gifts that need to go places other than immediate family.

Anyway, posts/replies to comments will have to wait until... next week, I think. Unless I feel extra motivated this weekend, and find some spare time. But next week I should have actual time.

Hope you're all OK - I've been reading my flist, but that's all.

(And trust me, I am well aware how lucky I am not to be working in retail!!)

the same casting of children as random animals that don’t seem to contribute to the story so they have a part (the highlight this year was undoubtedly the Three Wise Men’s Cat)
Lol. I will admit that one of the odd bits that has stuck in my head, correctly or incorrectly, about Christmas in the UK is Emma Thompson in Love Actually: "There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus?"

I'm not saying it's a perfect movie or anything, but . . . That's like never having seen Titanic. Or Pulp Fiction. How do you navigate popular culture without knowing Love Actually?

Good luck for the play. And I haven't seen Love Actually either.

Hee! I'm surprised you had time to write this post! I know the holidays are always a crazy (but fun!) whirlwind at your house!
