'Tis the season to be jolly...
For the first time in the last few years, I actually had all my Christmas shopping and chores done well before our scheduled flight to Lisbon. Then, everything started going wrong... Two blizzards came, tonnes of snow, Heathrow airport shut down, our flight was cancelled, Ana came down with the flu on the same day, and now Clara's come down with it too. So,
Ho Ho Ho
this certainly fills my Christmas stocking to the brink.
Still, I managed to get to the supermarket - in a shopping trip that lasted for almost four hours due to the snow and black ice on untreated roads and general run up to Christmas madness - and I got everything we need to have ourselves a "merry little Christmas" in spite of it all (althought nothing makes up for not being with the rest of our much loved and missed family during this time of the year). The house is cozy and well supplied and we count ourselves lucky for not having been stuck at Heathrow or on a freezing motorway for hours or even days.
I'll never play or want to hear "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas again", though...
May your Christmases be merry, my blog friends!
