End of the Holidays

It’s been a whirlwind winter break, filled with city trips, family visits, baking and overeating, and relaxed times at home.  It’s back to work tomorrow, but not without a little moment to pause and appreciate how much fun Tom and I had this holiday.

Thanks to Alec’s hospitality, we were city-folk for a few days, with gigs, art, and lectures in London.  Robin Ince hosted a fabulous night of comedy, music, science and maths, thrilling my inner-geek.  We did lots of wandering and were surprised by how quiet London was, once away from the shops.

Tom and I spent Christmas home alone- our first in eleven years and much appreciated.  We revelled in Christmas Eve preparations and the relaxed pace of a Christmas Day For Two.  With stuffed stockings, and stuffed tummies after an enormous brunch, we had a winter wander before heading back home for presents and an incredibly delicious Christmas Dinner, with all the trimmings (thank you Chef Tom!)  Considering that we bought a turkey for 6-8 people, I’m surprised by the lack of leftovers we had..

With so much delicious food, fun times, and good company, this has certainly been a Christmas to remember.  Now the new year is upon us, I’m looking forward to new projects, more exploring, and plenty of good food with good friends.

Happy New Year!
