27th Phone line repaired but internet still not working. DD was sick (ie vomit).
28th smashed a bottle of RED wine meant for neighbour (who has been away) over the hall floor. Thankfully it missed the stair carpet.

So all in all, a pretty normal family Christmas.

Today, internet STILL not working, despite reassurances from family that all is plugged in correctly. Checked. Wasn't plugged in.

If you want something doing properly...

Going out later to celebrate birthday of one of my team who lost her husband this summer. Everyone's providing something apart from the birthday girl (unless you count the venue). I'm on dessert but really don't feel very pudding-y at the moment, unless you look at my stomach which is beginning to resemble a Christmas pudding in shape.
Great update! No major mishaps like that here...knock on wood.

Wrose, V, PH, Jane, really enjoyed the Christmas cards.

PH, the coloring / shading on yours is really amazing. Great depth.

How about New Moon New Year -- no comma. This year there will be a new moon on New Year's day for the first time in ages. It's supposed to be a good sign for fresh starts, since that's what both new moons and new years signify.

And on a related tangent, it cracks me up to see snowflakes and snowmen next to the palm trees down in Florida.
When we moved to Florida, it was so weird to see holiday decorations! Lights on Palm Trees! It was just so different. Of course you get used to it.

I loved reading about the trip, V.

And yeah, I know how it can be when you don't sleep. Glad you survived!

Agreed - the lights on the palm trees is a little weird.
But it's not as amusing as the inflatable snowman that was holding a sign saying "Baby, it's cold outside" in 70-ish degree weather!
