Have you digested your Christmas Day goodies yet? Or are you still topping up, like me? A piece of ham here, seven pounds of fudge there? Still playing Christmas Carols? I am. Not tired of them yet!
We had "The Best Christmas Ever", according to the boys. As usual! Santa brought Chas a deadly weapon which we all had to try out first thing; The First Annual Chickland Christmas Day Archery Competition! Sam got a gorgeous guitar, and Max a big-boy fishing rod and tackle kit. Sam and Max also got deadly penknives, so that Max will stop borrowing Chas' even more deadly one. See any trend here? Don't mess with us, people, our arsenal is extensive.
There is much Lego underfoot still, and there are books and manuals to read and games to play. Boxing day we went and stuffed ourselves on curry in Gran Couva with the Khan cousins. Yesterday we went Down de Islands and Max fished all day. Today, there is extensive tidying-up and putting-away to do, plus a wild coffee tree to cut down.
And playing. New computer games to install. Probably visitors will come over. Come on visitors! We need help to eat all of this chocolate!
