And to all, a good night …  
Merry Christmas, my dears!

I have succeeded in singing carols with pushdragon at an actual church, which did not burn down at the sight of us. St James in the city of Sydney, beautiful music, lovely parishioners, fabulous company!

I was the lucky recipient of several lovely gifts, and Mr B told me he had plans to buy me a ukulele amp. Greater love hath no man …

I have some beautiful cards I need to say thanks for, too, as soon as I am awake enough to spell names. Only a few hours sleep last night, because …

I made gifts! Every child had a pressie! Almost all handmade, though I ran out of time for two, but had some good stand-by pressies in case that happened. They can get their made ones for Easter.

I ate SO MANY VEGETABLES and then I ate so much dessert. Surely that balances out?

My friends were spectacular, and we may have ended up with a spare cat for a year. These things happen.

I failed to write the next chapter of the Tidings of Comfort story, but will try to get it up soon.

I also failed to buy a charity gift for everyone, which I will rectify before the New Year, but cannot face the choices at this point in the day.

I did not remain taller than my friend N, who is 11. Ah well.

I hope that you all have at least as lovely a day as I have!

We had a wonderful evening yesterday. All ten of us. The age range from 2 to 86 meant that the oldest and the youngest were tired and ready for bed at about the same time. *G* But the food was good *(if I may say so myself), the company excellent and the gifts many and very fine indeed.

Today we have had our annual pyjama party. The kids have been almost completely submerged in their new gifts and I have just rested and enjoyed myself all day. Tomorrow we have guests again, but today is my day off. :D

Merry Christmas!

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas! And a sterling effort on the pressie front :)

It was great to see you person for the first time in ages. I thought the little bags for the kids was a great idea. I love the handmade present concept is brilliant but it's tough to think of new ideas. I now have enough snacks and treats to last into the New Year. Christmas has become a sugar swapping session - which is lots of fun.

I ate too much dessert too...

I'm still amazed not to have been struck by lightning for either my ungodly beliefs or my singing. The church was full of kind people, huh? Thanks for finding such an awesome service.

Can you be trusted with a uke amp?? The potential for "Smells like teen spirit" at max volume is a bit of a worry.
