Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you have all had a wonderful day!
We have had a good day, the kids have been pretty happy although the effects of too much sugar and too much excitement have been evident - thankyou to the Thomsons for a DVD which we put on late this afternoon to calm things down a little! Thankyou to everybody for the lovely presents, we had lots of fun opening all the mysterious parcels.
We had our family Christmas lunch yesterday with our home-cured ham, which was delicious. Some of it was too salty to eat, but the rest was lovely, next year we might cut back on the salt a little.
This morning we had a joint service with the Korean congregation who meet in our building, and our family shared lunch with them. We were blessed with a turkey from some friends so we took that along, and enjoyed trying kimchi and barbecued pork as well. This afternoon we tried to figure out how to play Dominion, a new family game which makes no sense until you have played a few rounds. I think we have got it sorted but we'll wait until we've finished the first game before we're sure on that...
Tomorrow we might try out a few Boxing Day sales as we have 3 kids' birthdays in January, Daniel is particularly keen on some Star Wars Lego, and Petra has been asking me to buy her Polly Pocket for months, so we'll see what's on sale.
