Merry Christmas

Current work: French duo book 2
Listening to: Christmas compilation
Reading: Barbara O’Neal, The Recipe for Lost Happiness (still enjoying)

Popping in briefly to wish everyone a merry Christmas (or, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, a happy holiday season). I hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends, laugh too much, and make some fantastic memories.

I’m taking a couple of days off.

No, really.

OK, definitely tomorrow; but I’m a lark so I can get away with doing a bit before everyone else gets up. Just hoping the snow melts so we get our traditional walk on the beach on Boxing Day. I have somewhere particular in mind this year, so I need to prime daughter to do the big eyes, ‘I love you Daddy’ look that turns him to mush so he’ll agree to it without moaning. (!) (He will enjoy it when we get there. And if we do, I will have some fab pics to post on Monday.)

I also want to watch Hamlet on Boxing Day. Will be interesting to see what David Tennant brings to the role. However, if there are squeaks of protest at Mummy being in boring English graduate mode, will be treating self to the DVD on Jan 4 and taking an indulgent morning off work next month instead. (183 minutes. Hmm. Either they all talk quickly, in which case please let there be subtitles, or there are cuts. Must fish out my Arden. Ha!)

Happy holidays.
