First post in a while
So, Christmas Eve, my birthday.....which at my age I am trying to forget!! Things have been a bit up and down here, that's why I haven't posted for a while. My mum hasn't been very well, so we have been in England for a few weeks to help look after her. Didn't like the snow there, we have enough of that here in Austria. We managed to get back home early December (despite the snow closing Gatwick 3 days before we were due to fly), and have been busy preparing for my sister-in-law's visit. She came over a week or so ago to stay with us over Christmas.
It's been very Christmassy here, we have had a lot of snow and we have been visiting the Advent Markets. In St. Wolfgang itself, St. Gilgen and Strobl and of course the one in Salzburg.
Tina's sister, Janet, quite likes to play games when she's here, and a couple of days ago we played a game of London. There's quite a learning curve for the first game, not knowing what all cards do. But we had a laugh and didn't make too many mistakes in the rules. I'm sure the next game will go a lot better, as it was the first one only took 2 hours. I'm sure we'll play a few games over Christmas. So, may I take the opportunity to wish anyone who reads this a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year!!
