The sun shone for all the important bits and no one cried or behaved in an appalling fashion. If there were slights they were borne.
The presents were all loved and played with and so far Wil hasn't even broken his remote control car.
There's even been time for sewing and I have rehabilitated half a dozen garments off the refashion and mending pile and today I might even tackle a new dress in time for the hot days at the end of the week.
There's also been too much eating and not enough exercise, so luckily the weather is on the up and there will be some swimming in the next few days.
And a bit of contemplation on excess and the nature of satiation, and a bit of effort to try and reset the levels in my brain that say when we've had enough - when I have received enough but also when I have given enough, when I have done enough. Ms Yarn Harlot has a lovely post about this titled "enough", but I can't seem to link directly to it but you can find her here http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/.
I guess this is the start of thinking about the coming year and a bit of self improvement. Exhaling Christmas, exhaling 2010, exhaling the old, the tired, the worn out. Gathering the effort for a big breath in and the start of a whole new year.
