Christmas is officially over - the decorations are being packed away today (no way do they get left up until Twelfth Night). Ralph is now experiencing gloom because all of the shiny toys he liked to trash are disappearing. I do enjoy the build-up to Christmas, I love seeing the Christmas lights in the streets, and carol concerts, and the house looking festive. I don't enjoy the hype, the insane consumerism and the forced jollity of it all, and right about now I'm ready to move on. David won't want to admit this but we've grown very fond of having fairy-lights on the banisters, so we may have to keep them out (if Ralph doesn't decide to visit the curse of the claw on them and/or electrocute himself that is.
