Most of Boxing Day was spent in the bosom of my family (Mum, sis, and sis's kids). I'd hit upon the idea of making a present of the fondue set I'd received in my Christmas hamper this year, but couldn't have imagined how welcome my gift would be. The children had asked for chocolate fondue for dessert, and Monique had thought to improvise...and now she didn't need to! We all sat down to a wonderful dinner, and the fondue set got christened straight out of the box.

I played hide and seek and watched that Grinch-film with Romeo, played cards with the older children, and had a jolly good time -- though Mum's depressed state still worries me a little. She's gone back into therapy again though recently, a year after deciding she could do without, so hopefully she'll start to reap the benefits from going back on her decision before too long.

Great choices, all. Me, I only managed to sit down and watch Bridget Jones's Diary, Chicago, and White Christmas (with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye), but couldn't find my favourite, It's A Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart anywhere except on a German channel and I don't like to watch films that are dubbed.

Oh, and Christmas Day started off quite nicely with The Snow Queen.
