Right on cue, the flowers on my Christmas cactus are just beginning to open.
We have had an enjoyable, if quiet day. We went for a short walk from our house this morning, while it was dry. We started our Christmas dinner about 2pm, watched the King's speech at 3pm, and afterwards had our pudding.
During the day we have spoken to both my sisters on the phone (one is in Cornwall and the other in Australia), which was especially nice for my Mother.
I do hope fellow blippers have had an equally peaceful and enjoyable Christmas day.
