Funny kind of Christmas
Funny kind of Christmas this year, due to losing Uncle Douglas last week. This morning rather than waking to play around with new toys (ie, hear cds and read books) I've written Doug's funeral address. Celebrations this year are out of the frame. Still, oddly, tomorrow's farewell at Rochdale Crem will bring some fractured parts of our family together who don't often otherwise meet at this season. And hopefully the footy this afternoon will help restore some equilibrium to the shape of the holiday.
