A bit quiet

I am not going to be posting much in the next few days, mainly because I am rather behind on my Christmas preparations, and also because there is a blogging ban on Christmas day and some degree of disapproval of blogging over this weekend. A further complication is the annual tradition chez Petrona of watching all three extended editions of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, a considerable time-sink.

So I shall simply wish you all a very Happy Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I will be back when I can.  Here is a hoiday photo of (from left) Cathy, Malcolm, Jenny and me.
