Big Trip Review pt.3 - Christmas
Christmas was a chance to rest, recuperate and spend some time with my family. Dad had been kicked out of his own home to make way for us, so he was based at Mum's while we were up the road (yes, they are very cordial divorcees). My sister Amy and family were also in town, so it was the first time that the Bs had met Phoebe, who was around 8 months old. 3 grandchildren in one place was a real treat for everyone.
Unfortunately Christmas coincided with the spread of a particularly virulent bug which did the rounds of all of us except B1. Phoebe's vomiting was particularly explosive, bless her, and I wasn't able to attack my Christmas dinner with the usual gusto. A great time was had by all despite the bug, and I was able to squeeze in a few spouts against my better judgement.
Here's one for the Back In My Day department; this photo shows B1 playing with her favourite present, a digital camera. Not a toy camera but a genuine, fully operational digital camera. She still loves it too and definitely has the gist of how to operate it, although we have an inordinate number of photos of her feet.
