Merry Christmas everyone!

As usual, I’m beat on Christmas evening; having Midnight Mass, then Christmas day Mass, then cooking, always leaves me exhausted. The Queen was suitably tasteful this afternoon, talking of the “annus horribilis” we’ve just had (no, she didn’t use those words) and reminding us of our duty toward those who have suffered in the last year. The Christmas ham was very good (if I do say so myself), and all four of us are suitably stuffed and waiting for squash pie a bit later.

So, Merry Christmas to you all (well, Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and a very happy day to everyone else), and I hope you’ve all had a good day.

To those who are feeling down, hugs and much love from London to you all.

Update: The Times of London, today, referred to the Queen’s talking about 2005 as an “annus horribilis”. So I wasn’t the only one who made the connection, I guess.

    It would have been far from tasteful if she had, considering that she used them not so very many years ago.

    Yes, tasteful, now that describes her.
