We’re having a great Christmas down here in Wicklow – an excellent breakfast, followed by a wonderful church service in Greystones, back home for presents (Bananas fairly dominating that one!) and drinks with the neighbours here.

We’re taking it easy for the rest of the afternoon while the turkey cooks – oh, and also trying to master the Bopit – a rather addictive little gadget that Glynn & Jayne got me for Christmas.

I hope that wherever you are, you’re having an excellent day as well. 2006 for us has been a pretty wild & crazy year, starting off with some bad news about this time last year, which got completely turned on it’s head with the arrival of Bananas in September (so I’m happy to say that doctors aren’t always right!) — I hope it’s been a good year for you too: roll on 2007!
