Have a wonderful Christmas-or-whatever-you-celebrate, dears! *loves you all*
And this is in case my yuletide writer pops in over the next few days to see how I react - I may or may not (it's currently under discussion in the lounge room) be going to my brother's for a few days starting from Boxing Day - which is when, I think, given the calendar differences, the stories will go up in Australian time. So if I preserve a silence, it is not icy with disappointment, merely the effect of being out in the boondocks with no 'net access and not having been able to read it - much as I am longing to.
I just know I'll adore it to death - it's a present!
