Well here we are.  Tonight is the night that Santa visits boys and girls and leaves them presents, if they’ve been good all year.  Or if they’ve been born into a first world country with an economically stable family life.

I have finished all my christmas shopping.  C isn’t getting anything spectacularly amazing this year – mostly clothes and various bits and pieces – but as he was asking me today at 11am what I wanted, I don’t feel too bad.  His dad and stepmum are sorted out, as are my Mum and J, her other half.  So now all we have to do is survive the family bombardment.

I hope that you are all safe and happy this festive season.  Look after yourselves, and each other.
