It is after Christmas, the family is playing with their presents, and I am smoking a cigarette, catching a minute to myself. St Stephen’s Day is usually the day for a long family walk, but with the rain bucketing, we took a slow day instead. And now I am eager to see what you guys have been up to on Christmas Eve. Here’s a rare glimpse into Christmas in Casa Guylty…
Apart from your lovely messages and wishes, I was blessed with wonderful presents. It appears that not only do my nearest and dearest know me well, but they also tolerate my mid-life eccentricities. Daughter gave me a Hobbit desk calendar – and very helpfully marked all the pages that had a picture of Thorin. She even put a few words in his mouth.
And the hubster, who started the whole RAPS frenzy with his amazing present last year, went back to the drawing board and gave me a voucher (with a generous contribution to my impending trip to NZ) – for someone who occasionally gets frustrated with my RA love, he always deals with it with good humour. Check the small print:
Hope you have had lovely family time over the holidays, too. Any RA related pressies under *your* Christmas tree?
