Our Christmas was calm and cosy, exactly what I wanted. MrFF’s insistence that he would forage for our Christmas meal late on Christmas Eve was a success, he came home with a duck crown with stuffing and plum sauce reduced to half price. My culinary skills decline in proportion to the amount of Prosecco I drink so I need something foolproof, this was easy and delicious.Beautiful gifts from family, my brother and sister in law must have remembered me telling them that when we returned to the penthouse after 13 months I spent an hour looking for my George Forman grill before realising I don’t have one here. They gave us just the right one to replace that which never existed. Candles and smellies, food and drink treats and pretty scarves all made me happy.
It was just the Christmas I wanted, no over consumption, no extravagant gifts, plenty of recycling, much peace, messages from Italy. What more could I ever need.It’s Boxing Day, we have a white world outside and it’s very quiet in the building, we shall have a lazy day and be thankful for what we have and where we are. I hope your dreams came true this Christmas.
