I would just like to report that I had a very merry christmas day. While I wouldn’t call it quiet due to the number of people in the house, it was fairly relaxed and chilled. Lyn, of course, supplied the music, while Marta cooked us an outstanding (vegetarian) christmas dinner. Dom and Paul were here too, and we all had an excellent time. I received some great presents, and I think Lyn liked the clothes I got her too. Thanks to Skype, we also had a good chat with my parents. In all it was a great day, a day of friends, family, peace and happiness; the type of christmas which, when you think about it the day after, makes you realise how truly lucky you are.
