Then we went to the ballet!
And the tree went up!
And the fire got lit!
And the chocolates got opened!
And Santa came!
And we had a lovely lazy Christmas.
* * *
The plasterboard did not get patched, the stairs did not get painted, the plaster did not get sanded, the curtains did not get made and we ignored it all.
And we had a lovely time, thankyou very much.
Tomorrow the decorations come down *BOO* and we move back to reality and I will be back to plastering and sanding like a trooper (That is, of course, a trooper who does a lot of plastering and sanding)
I hope Santa was good to you all and I'm wishing all my readers a very happy 2013.
