We decided to have a rather understated Christmas this year as I was fully expecting to be in hospital this year, with Penny’s original due date being the 26th of December. As things turned out we were lucky enough to welcome Penny into the world nearly a month early and will be spending our first Christmas at home with her, with Christmas Day spent with family. There will be none of the rushing about cooking the Christmas lunch, something which for one year I don’t think I will miss. I am, however, looking forward to next year when Penny will be old enough to fully enjoy the festivities. For now I would like to wish all my regular readers a Happy Christmas.
