When your in-laws talk about some family friend and how sad it is that they are spending Christmas Day on their own and you’re agreeing with them but actually thinking right then how you would give anything, literally anything, to swap.

Howard - erudite and hilarious, as ever. Made my whole family laugh (almost loudly enough for me to slip out the door unnoticed). Well, still here. Bah humbug.

Weirdly, that’s exactly where we were! Took the dogs for a walk and then stopped in for coffee and cake. Lovely.

I thought you might have been - we had lunch their with friends, it was a tad busy, pub that is - there was no one on the Biblins or Newport waters and probably won't be this week given the weather...
