The Bleak Midwinter  
We have been deluged with rain starting about 3am, along with very strong winds. I keep thinking how much snow that's going to translate into for those of you farther north! As long as we don't loose power while the roast is in the oven!

We talked to my mum last night, she'd really hoped we'd be there this Xmas. This is the sixth one in a row we've been apart. But next year for sure! Then Nin and I opened our gift to each other and after we watched 'Love Actually', and cried, and ate cheese and bread and drank a bottle of wine. I woke up this morning to the scent of mulled cider. Nin was up before me and made a batch of it. House smells yummy now!

Today, we're going watch Pride and Prejudice (the Colin Firth one) and I'll make Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding for dinner. And Nin and I are both online, so we're reading fic too [g] This whole both being off together on a holiday is bizarre!

I was talking to strangevisitor7 last night, and one of the things that came up was the blessing of friendship. So this holiday season, my most beloved friends, both old and new, know that you are a true blessing in my life. All my love to you in the coming New Year and beyond.

Merry Christmas! Just got back from family stopping off to say hi, sorry I have been absent, and Merry Christmas to my friends.

Can I second your sentiments about friendship.

Roast is in the oven, drinking wine, and watching the rain come down :)

Glad to hear from you today!
