Gwilym our son is with us at the moment. He arrived on Saturday with his girlfriend, Beth, who is also a student at the London School of Theology. Beth returns to the UK on Friday so we decided to have a phased Christmas this year.
Today was the first Day of Christmas. This entailed:
. The postman bringing parcels of 480 PG Tips tea bags - that will keep us going for about 3 months, I reckon. He also brought some jars of really good chutney. I'd forgotten how good really good chutney is.
. The opening of the stockings and one present.
. Christmas dinner. We got a nice, free-range corn-fed chicken from a local store and we ate very well. Dessert was French-style, an ice-cream log.
. A snacky tea of Waitrose "stollen bites" and a mince pie.
. Playing Monopoly and Bananagrams
although we did not go for the planned walk to the gardens of Château Pape Clément, it has nevertheless been a nice day.
