rmc28: Rachel standing in front of the entrance to the London Eye pier (Default)
I am sitting on Charles's bed, with the contents of his stocking on one side, and those of mine & Nicholas's on the other. As is becoming traditional, Charles opened his, then mine, with excited commentary. Apparently Santa chose very well this year. I am trying not to look too obviously smug.

We have fetched down a box of Charles's old baby toys & got two biggish ones out. Nico is sitting between my legs, playing industriously & Charles & I are looking on & talking together.

We are trying to let Tony sleep in: he has a lot of cooking ahead today. My brothers haven't emerged from their respective rooms yet[1] and the stockings on each bedroom door remain undisturbed. Soon I will go pull on some clothes & go downstairs with my boys for breakfast and maybe we will watch some silly tv. There are a lot of presents under the tree, disproportionately many for Charles.

[1] Jonny lives with us, my middle brother; Matt, the youngest, arrived on Sunday; Dan, the oldest, plans to drop in tomorrow.

Life is good.

Matt has just emerged, asking for wrapping paper. And I thought I was being last-minute wrapping late last night.
