Happy Christmas!

The tree is up, the presents are underneath and I’m almost finished with the cleaning. So all that remains is to wish all my lovely readers a very happy and stress-free Christmas. Spend time with your loved ones, eat delicious food and don’t worry about how your Christmas compares with anyone else’s. The most important thing is that you have a nice time, whatever it is you’re doing. I know a lot of you haven’t had the best year, so I hope you can forget your troubles, at least for a few hours, and have a nice time. Catch you on the other side!

Merry Christmas!

I wasn’t supposed to get a Christmas tree… we had originally planned on going away for the holidays and Jan doesn’t believe in putting up trees any earlier than Christmas Eve. Then when we spontaneously decided to stay, I assumed there wouldn’t be time. But then Jan surprised me with this little fellow:
