Christmas - where are we up to?
Presents: all done. Not too much although as my parents' and my sister's and my brother's presents come into the house things are beginning to pile up very satisfyingly.
Carols: sung, beautiful, no thanks to me at all, but beautiful.
Wrapping: hmm, we have done some (we as in Ian who can wrap so much better than I can. Mine look as if I threw the paper on hopefully and then sellotaped until I ran out). Sadly there are loads more to do and Ian has had an operation on his hand today. Perhaps we shall just go for the dog chewed look. It will go with the slightly tatty, homemade look of everything else!
Candles: there are loads, a new haul from Morrisons.
Wine: by the caseload.
So there should be food, and wine and candles. Candles hide a multitude of sins!
