    Told my Brother in law he had to sit out in the garden with his dinner but in fairness we'd near ask him that on a good year just so we don't have to listen to him

    On the masks question, nope, but no guests either, so we should be alright.

    We put my grandparents at a separate table but in the same room as us. No masks though. Everything was plated up so there was no buffet style help yourself where we all would be using the same spoons

    Having a lovely holiday tbh, Christmas Day was great, had the grand parents in on Christmas and Stephen’s day, careful but not to the point of obsession (no hugging but no masking either), have a visit to the neighbours planned for later this week but that’s the only one we’ll be making, it’s a quiet one but that’s how we like it tbh.

    What were you expecting? The week between Christmss and New Year's Eve is usually dull in my experience.

    Very, you’re ahead of the curve if you remember what day it is tbh, brilliant.

    A week to go to work again. I’m already in the depths of despair about it.

    Im taking annual leave next year and I’ll be away for Xmas. Kids are past Santa, we don’t have a big family and spend most of it with just ourselves.
    I hate the forced side to Christmas. People making a fuss to see you when they have the rest of the year but make no effort.
