We just got home from our Christmas lunch at my parents’ place. Haven’t heard a peep from Lily’s mother, so this is the first Christmas in a very long time (possibly ever) that we’ve not seen Lily. It’d definitely be nice to see her, but avoiding all the obnoxiousness that comes with having to deal with her mother is also nice, heh.
My sister, her husband, and their two kids came up from Nowra which was nice, as they don’t normally make it up here for Christmas. It was also our first Christmas since Nanny died, so that was a bit sad. Mum had a photo book printed with a bunch of photos from Nanny’s life, so that was lovely. 🙂
I got a heap of books (six Discworld novels—all of which I’ve read but never actually owned—, three Warhammer 40,000 novels, and Neil Gaiman’s “Neverwhere”), plus a tabletop game called X-Wing. Think Warhammer 40,000 but with Star Wars ships instead! I’ve never played it before but have heard good things and am excited to try it out!
