It was never going to be the most Christmassy Christmas ever with the back of the house being renovated! At least carpets went down in the back bedrooms on 23rd December! I flipped my wig on Christmas Eve after discovering a load of mould in the wardrobes that Him Indoors didn't seem to think was a problem. There is a bit of an on-going mould problem due to all the moisture that was coming out of the plaster-there can't be that much more to come and there are only a few spots here and there where it's obvious that the plaster is still drying out.
Went to mother-in-law's for the big day itself. I think that possibly due to at least four of the ten assembled family members being completely knackered due to different reasons it was a bit of a damp squib if you ask me. The meal was lovely but there was no lively chat or banter, no arguing over who wanted to watch what on T.V. etc.etc. At some point before we arrived someone had put the telly on some obscure music video channel I'd never heard of which proceeded to show the same music videos about every half an hour!
Looking forward to 2012-Toddler starts pre-school in a couple of weeks time and hopefully work on the house will progress.
Happy New Year one and All.
