It is our turn to host Christmas and all the family are invited. This was the event that Clare wanted to host but couldn’t because of clashing dates. Roger and Jan, Danae and Louisa and their families are also here. All in all there are 19 of us gathered.
It was all quite pleasant and friendly and I was pleased that Jo came. Clare’s kids are quite extra-ordinarily well-adjusted considering. Theo was very polite and well-behaved and the younger kids got on well together.
