Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Our Christmas was just about perfect. We unpacked Christmas stockings, ate a VERY speedy breakfast, opened the rest of our gifts from under the tree (eeeee, The Collected Letters of Jane Austen!!!! and sparkly necklaces & earrings! and the new Jasper Fforde novel! and CDs by Shirley Bassey and Wimme! And, and, and - ! :) ), played various card games using the awesomely silly, fun Harry Potter playing cards I'd found in my Christmas stocking (Patrick knows me so well), and watched several episodes of "House", since Patrick had gotten the Season 3 boxset as one of his gifts.

It was a really, really good day, rounded off with delicious Christmas pie (lentils, veggies, and red wine, in a yummy pastry), garlicky roast potatoes & leeks, and then Christmas pudding with ice cream and mince pies.

...and the Christmas pie was awesome! I chopped the veggies, then Patrick cooked them in red wine, rolled out the pastry and wrote the message in it - P[atrick] loves S[teph] and M[aya] - , and I made the little Christmas tree decorations on top.
