Nearly Over

"Would you like me to make more mince pies?" asks Ailz.

"No," I say. "I'd like to start getting back to post-Christmas normality."

Tomorrow is effectively that last- but in effect- the biggest day of the season for us; we're going to Becky's for the annual family get-together. Presents will be exchanged, there'll be food, there'll be kids; it'll be great...

But that song by Wizard: I don't agree with it. Christmas is wonderful but to have it every day would be dreadful- like that everlasting tea-party in Wonderland. Fun is only fun when it's the exception not the rule.
