We've been to visit TSH's mother (age 94 and still in very good physical and mental health) and his daughter. This meant 500 miles of driving and a number of late (for us, anyway) nights and early mornings. It will be just us plus a visitor for drinks on Christmas Day itself.
Old Faithful took the hair discussion very well and we now have a new plan for 'identical every time'.
I haven't even written up my notes from the Skype with S. At this time of year Christmas seems to take over even if there are no real plans. But I've decorated the cake - marzipan, icing, icing stars scattered on top and a few white sugar sprinkles.
