The Christmas cards were on the mantelpiece within
an hour of me arriving home from my trip to the UK.
The tree was up less than 24 hours later.
And now all the presents are sitting under it,
patiently waiting to be unwrapped in 2 days time.
But....yesterday's temperature peaked at 17.5 degrees; we had
mid morning coffee & lunch on the terrace
and took a stroll by the sea whilst eating ice cream.
It all seems a bit surreal......wonder how long it'll
take for the novelty to wear off?
