So, arrangements for getting back to (one of.. we're rather a spread out bunch) the familial lair for Christmas more or less sorted, and I've done my bit for the big dinner with placing a delivery order for much good cider, wine, vodka, and about 14lb of Gressingham duck. Now time to kick back at my new haunt, safe in the twin knowledge of some delicious food ahead, and ponies waiting back home. ^_^

As you probably know, I'm not a religious sort by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a time to enjoy good company and the spirit of the season regardless of exactly why. ^_^ For whatever reasons, I'm feeling happier about this Yule than in several years. I dare say the locale hardly hurts - wandering past Georgian architecture as a matter of routine, which may as well have sprung from a period drama of class vs circumstance, where you half-expect a big blue 1950s Police Box around the corner.. it does add sparkle to life.

Where will you be for the season? Travelling some distance, maybe?
Fingers crossed I'll have a functioning bike for Christmas. Half day at work on Friday (for which I get a full day's pay), then down to my mum's. Christmas Eve my best friend and I will go to the children's service at the Minster, as we've done pretty much every year all our lives. Christmas Day just me and my mum. Boxing Day the aforementioned best friend organises a curry and pub outing so we can unwind after 48 hours facing nothing but family. At some point in the next day or so, over to Howard's for motorcycling adventures and New Year.

Oh man, I can't wait! I hope you and yours have a lovely Christmas!
Oh, nice touch with the full day's pay. ^_^

A merry festive curry outing. Genius! Maybe I'll spring that on the family. =:D And this year, I should be able to get online without any magic incantations.. ^_^; (The place was in a compact cellular black hole - step outside, and it was fine, at least for voice, but inside, I was right on the borderline of "No Service" and being able to fetch email)

Quite a calm time on Crimbo itself, then? Sounds like a superb opportunity to catch up with life. ^_^
