Christmas Day is nearly over.
It has been different this year.The day started with a WhatsApp chat with our son in Cambridge,then with our daughter in Cheshire. After that we decided,as we were allowed to drive today,to get some sea air.Twenty five minutes in the car got us to Abergele(Gwyrch castle of Im a Celebrity fame just a mile or so away).The sun was shining but it was cold so a brisk walk was what we did.Then back home to open some presents.A Zoom call with our son,daughter in law and three of our grandchildren was great.We then made other family and friend calls .Some were on their own.Another has a husband with dementia.At four o'clock it wastime to chat to our daughter and two granchildren.It was great chatting to them but it is just not the same as actually being with them..Still we made the best of it.I have had some super presents.We sat down to eat at 6pm.C had made the full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings but we were too full to eat the trifle I had made!!! Tomorrow we are back in our tier 4 lockdown,no driving anywhere.We are staying in as the infection rate here is very high.We have enough food for weeks,new books to read,a new hobby to start(macrame),a new jigsaw and lots of treats to eat. I think it is time now for a glass of wine and some tv. Hope you have all had a good year in these difficult and unprecedented times. Barbarax
