That picture is a fairly accurate depiction of how I feel right now - a bit chaotic and untidy, and a bit blurry and out of focus... Christmas takes its toll, with the excessive eating and the excessive visiting and meeting people, and the excessive presents. We had a policy of not giving excessive gifts this year - after all, The Bean doesn't need another room full of toys and Tick doesn't really need anything other than mommy milk right now ;-) - but somehow we seem to have neglected to tell other people. The result can be seen above...

We had a lovely time, though - relaxed and fun, if a bit chaotic.

New Year is shaping up to be a much more quiet affair. I have managed to catch the flu that has been going round, so I've spent the last two days in bed, only feeding Tick when he demanded it, while D has been entertaining The Bean (they are out in town right now, buying a new mobile phone I think...). We hadn't planned to do much for New Year anyway, but the way it is looking now the evening might be over by 9.30pm! Oh well...

In any case, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and I wish you all the best for the New Year!



  1. I'm so sorry you are ill! I hope you have a wonderful 2009. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. Happy Holidays to you too! I hope you feel better. :-(

  3. Happy new year!

    I do know that "post Christmas" feeling. Although it's lovely to have a break from the normal hum drum of life there's also something comforting about getting back to the usual routine ;)

  4. Ooh, hope you feel much better soon. Happy 2009 - may it bring you much joy. :-)
