I woke at 5 today and caught that pleasant transition from the world service into Radio 4; when I catch this pleasant wave into the start of the day I listen until PFTD at 5.45, and occasionally beyond that into Farming Today. When I had finished today I went back to sleep (unusually) and dreams of shared green tea.
Anyhow, as I listened across the hour today, the same theme came up three times and then in a most welcome comment on a previous post, the thought was echoed again by an elegant Parisian Blogger of my slight acquaintance .
Lots of people seem to view Christmas as a sort of 'Buy One Get One Free' argument promotion with a guaranteed spat in those few days that has been boiling up all year! I have to say my Christmas was (and ever is) utterly free of such things; time with my family is a few days entirely devoid of a cross word or a falling out! I mean I am very happy back in BS5 today, and I am happy with guests in my own house, but all my Christmas days were fine and dandy, and I could have stayed many more without incident or argument. Time to count those blessings again, I think.
Without a real jot of relevance to the post, this is my bed, wherein the radio listening hour takes place (yes, it's another Christmas camera pic).
