After a few days of hurried preparations for Christmas, I finally managed to leave town and head to London to see the family. I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing Christmas break.
Except, of course that the family now includes my six-year-old nephew, and my three-year-old niece.
It's obviously been a while since I've seen them. My niece especially is so much more expressive, and is talking in complete sentences and everything. The nephew is his usual effusive self. Between the two of them, I've been running back and forth since I got here.
They finally settled down. Their aunt got them Castle in the Sky for the nephew's birthday in September, so we're watching that now.
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope that you all find time to spend with those special to you too.
