I’ve had two breakfasts four hours apart, worked in between times and had a good nap. Next, I’ll call round to elderly friends and (if they’re in) be given sherry and a mince pie. After that, if the Sage is home, we’ll put up the Christmas tree and if not I’ll wrap the presents. Phil’s has arrived; some books for Zerlina haven’t but there’s still time for a last delivery, if that’s what the Post Office does nowadays and if not, a 4-month-old won’t mind if she hasn’t got quite enough to read. Her mother can always read her Miff Heehog in any case.
I hope you have a lovely Christmas and thank you all for being there.
