Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I would have liked to have ended this year on more of a bang, but this Christmas thing - it just takes over, really, doesn't it?

So, as usual, I'm running around like a headless turkey, trying to get last-minute shopping, wrapping, cooking, cleaning and tidying done while attempting to get into the ho-ho-ho mood at the same time.

It's working, but I think I probably need another sip of sherry. Or bottle. I forget which.

In the meantime, all bets on the blog are off for the moment - so have a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year, and I hope to see you back here again in 2010!

Merry Christmas and enjoy another glass of sherry!

gosh, i've never ever let christmas take over, there is no such thing as a must (well, ris á la malta aka rice pudding might be the exception) or a have to. sit back, relax and just do the things you love, not the things you feel you 'have to'.

have a wonderful christmas time and a joyous new year (hope to see you back on blogging then)!
