Our decorations are up, the boys have seen the big man (if you're anywhere near Milton Keynes, Frosts has the most perfectly bearded Santa I've ever seen), I have made and posted my cards, I have bought all of my presents and some are wrapped already, we've been busy baking and crafting. I even have the Christmas Radio Times and a highlighter pen, but I'm not feeling it yet. With more funerals than weddings attended this year I'm feeling uncharacteristically subdued. We've also had colds, coughs, fevers and chest infections to deal with, but thankfully the boys were well enough to take part in their first Nativity play.
Perhaps a little Baileys in my coffee will do the trick.
Season's greetings, friends.
PS Thanks to Fox's Biscuits for the goodies. You've got to have a tin of biccies at Christmas after all.
