    Its the most wonderful time of the year! I can´t get over how much you and Phil as well are Christmas haters, I guess you put on a brave front at my Christmas party in May! so thanks for getting into the spirit of it for me, and guess what I´ll likely put you through it all again this May as well! MERRY CHRISTMAS! x

    Ange – I actually loved ‘your Christmas’ back in May. Felt more ‘Christmassy’ than I have in years…

    As for the photo – didn’t think you’d mind…. 😉

    Yeah I totally agree it has just become a drain on the pocket … but I’m not a Christmas hater … I’m a hater of the falseness! Christmas for me is about being with people you love and sharing a good meal (or for us this year 4 – don’t you love divorced parents on both sides). No-one has to buy me anything to show me they care … Ange your night in May was proper Christmas because it wasn’t about gifts but about sharing and spending time together something that should not be reserved for Christmas but ALL YEAR ROUND!

    Well put Phil! I think those of us there that night in May will remember that ‘Christmas’ as one of the best…

    Parents divorced on both sides? I think that sums up most of us these days… (Have you seen Modern Family yet? Absolutely brilliant…)

    Sometimes the divorce route is best – better for kids to have two happy parents and two nice step-parents than live with two miserable parents who stay together for the kids… Anyway – I shouldn’t be saying this to a newly-wed expectant father should I! 😀

    Have a great Christmas both of you and hopefully see you soon…
