Im back in London and we’re having a peaceful Christmas Day.
After a late Christmas Eve spent sipping mulled wine, nibbling on festive snacks and chocolate while watching His Dark Materials, this morning I woke up late.
I went to mass and it was bright and relatively joyful, for what these times allow.
After church I put up the final last minute decorations and took out some antique pieces like a Georgian candlestick and old plates.
On the first day out of my post-return quarantine, we went to get some decorations and we, ooops, ended up taking home a tree! It took us a 30-minute walk to carry it back… free gym! We have a smiling tree
We were meant to have goose for lunch but it took ages to cook so we had a small lunch instead and went for a walk before it was too dark to enjoy. So the goose and all the trimmings is for dinner.
I’m now catching up with other things like phone calls etc.
Have safe and peaceful Christmas holidays ❤️🙏
