So the steak’s defrosting, there’s plenty of spinach and strawberries in the fridge for a salad, my cocoa brownie’s a-baking, and there’s dessert wine a-chilling. It’s a quiet Christmas this year, just the three of us (last year my husband’s family was around, the year before that we were back in Singapore).
It’s time to put my tired feet up on the couch, snuggle under the throw and settle in with one of the library books I picked up this morning. Perhaps the graphic novel adaptation of Sense and Sensibility? Or to continue with the Mary Russell series? Plenty of choices for my holiday reads.
I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year!
