Annnnnd we’re back to normal

So that’s Christmas and New Year out the way for another year (or as far as the shops are concerned, until September, when it’s deemed socially acceptable to start selling us Crimbo).

In a way I’m glad, because although I don’t consider myself that religious, I do find it pretty crass that the whole event has been reduced to a marketing ploy for shops to separate us from our money and give us stuff that to be honest we don’t really need or particularly want, in exchange.

The break from work was good, so I can’t complain about that.  Managed to catch Rogue One and Passengers at the cinema, and had a couple of nice meals out.

Even gave the kilt another airing on Christmas day.  It’s good to have an excuse to put it on, as it’s a lot of money to pay for a garment to just have it hanging in a wardrobe all year.
