This yr for the primary time in so long as I can bear in mind, and presumably the primary time ever, I’m spending Christmas in a lodge. Every yr for the previous perpetually we’ve both been at residence, internet hosting household and associates, or visiting them as their company. This yr, although, my mother-in-law went into a care residence close to my sister-in-law’s residence within the North of England so we’re staying close by with the intention to see everybody over the festive season. I’m scripting this earlier than we go and I’m questioning what it will likely be like. The lodge guarantees all method of fantastic treats: scrumptious meals together with the complete Christmas dinner, festive afternoon tea, carols and different reside music and the possibility to work off all of the meals within the fitness center and pool. It sounds nice. But even at Christmas I discover I nonetheless take into consideration writing – will or not it’s the type of lodge that may be a good setting for a homicide thriller? What will our fellow company be like? Will there be rows – or romances? (I’ll be taking notice!) Will it snow??? All will little doubt be revealed as our Christmas journey progresses! Wherever you might be on the planet and nevertheless you rejoice, the Wenches want everybody peace and pleasure within the yr forward.
