Thursday Thirteen: Happy Christmas

Thirteen things that made this a happy Christmas ...

  1. Singing carols in the High Street on Christmas Eve
  2. Happy girls sitting on our bed opening stockings
  3. Little Cherub's happy squeak of recognition when she opened a package and found Iggle Piggle
  4. Mass on Christmas morning (despite Cherub's best efforts at disruption)
  5. Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, the cooking of which all went to plan
  6. Socialising with family, friends and neighbours
  7. Chocolate
  8. The Doctor Who Christmas special
  9. My new iPod Touch
  10. A leftovers breakfast for Boxing Day (smoked salmon sandwiches for Tevye and I, houmous and yellow pepper for Angel, grumbles from Star because there was no leftover apple pie. Oh, and I finished up the Christmas pudding with brandy butter and cream. Yes, I do have good digestion!)
  11. Visiting Grandma for Boxing Day tea and enjoying the comparison with last Christmas when she was in hospital recovering from hip replacement surgery and we were trying to pack up her house ready to move
  12. Reliving my childhood by playing my brother's favourite childhood game, Coppit. I found a set in a charity shop and couldn't resist buying it for him.
  13. Watching a BBC adaptation of Noel Streatfeild's Ballet Shoes - a real treat, despite a little plot tweaking to add a romance for Garnie.

Oh! I'm hanging out for Dr Who and Ballet Shoes! (well. I know we'll get the first... I certainly hope we'll get the second!)
