Happy New Year - Welcome 2011

I've been quiet on the old blogging front since Christmas but we're still here. A few colds, sore throats, tonsillitis - but a very happy Christmas nonetheless. No water for ten days but luckily we have lots of family with water so we bathed and showered, ate and drank and eventually got over it.

Today is an especially lazy day but a Christmas tradition. Christmas films. This is where sky plus really comes into it's own. But, today, thanks to the magic archives of RTE we've managed to watch By the Light of the Silvery Moon, a bit of Mary Poppins, currently watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (which Eilis and I agree is our favourite versus the modern version with Johnny Depp). We also recorded Annie for later on. These films have always been Christmas for me. So to get them altogether and to share them with the kids is great fun. Ya gotta love lazy days.

Happy New Year.
