Hello, did you have a good Christmas? I’ve had a very peaceful week, with wonderful food and thoughtful presents and only slightly too much wine.
We cooked rib of roast beef especially because Chris’ tech-friend Pat gave us some fancy red wine that tasted like blackberries and decadence and Christmas trees. Thank you so much, Pat!
Our big festive treat was a trip to see The Lion King, which was really spectacular, go and see it if you get the chance. The effects sound crazy when I write them down – birds fly over the audience! A life-sized elephant puppet walks down the aisle! Wildebeest stampede on stage! I think the adults in the audience were more stunned than the kids.
Today is Hogmanay, which means champagne and freshly-washed pyjamas. Goodnight, and happy new year to you! See you on the other side. x
