Have had a splendid Christmas Day, surrounded by family in our little flat in Brixton. The mulled wine, desert wine, red, white and beer flowed freely as we noshed upon the ducks, Alouitious and James, and played Monopoly (Dad and I declared ourselves joint winners to avoid further hours of torment and delaying of the Christmas tea).
Poppy and Max were delightful, presents were sweet, useful and compelling all at once. Walking is being saved till Boxing Day.
And, ladies and gentlemen, the Queen!
