“Thank you for your email.
I am on vacation and will respond to your message as soon as possible when I return to the office on December 29th.

We’re getting ready to leave for my sister-in-law’s place, and are frantically filling the car with clothes, ski gear, snow chains, and lots and lots of prezzies! There are wrapping paper off-cuts and boxes all over the house, which is more fun for some than for others:
My nephews have been IMing me every time I log into Facebook for a couple of weeks now, wondering when we’re coming and why we can’t get there sooner – well, they just have a few more hours to wait!
I hope all my readers have a wonderful festive season full of family, friends, feasting and fun, whichever holiday(s) you may celebrate!
