Christmas started very early, no idea why. Had breakfast at about 7:30. Was out with the dog before 10. We finally sat down and opened presents, Hanson CD got the annual outing. I had a number of fun things, including a model V8 engine which will no doubt torment me on assembly. Got picked up by mother and went to my sisters for lunch. Much fun and merriment was had. Dinner was wonderful, cooked by the brother-in-law. Mother was mother. Came back and fed the dogs, then went back there in the evening, played some pool and some games. George Michael then died (this was not based on any of our activity), there’s still a few days for some other celebs to pop off yet.
