A very happy Christmas to everyone! Or Happy Hanukkah! Or, just enjoy the few days off if you don’t celebrate either :-)
I’m in Ireland for Christmas. Dungarvan, Co. Waterford to be exact. My hometown, on the sea and nestled in the mountains. Well, Irish mountains, they’re not that big! I come home every year, at least I always have done, it’s a great time to meet family and friends, almost all of whom are home at this time of year. This one is the exception to the rule, I have (I think) 9 first cousins and a brother in Australia this year.
Christmas dinner this year is at my sister’s house, her husband is cooking, and it promises to be a lovely meal. We’ve been tucking into spiced beef all week, and as of an hour ago Christmas ham. I’ve brought one of my favourite wines from London, a bottle of As Laxas Albarino from Brindisa, and I’ll be having that with my turkey.
Whatever you do, and whoever you spend it with, enjoy the festive season. See you here on the other side of Christmas!
