Best Christmas ever! This is the first Christmas that Mr. Cohab and I have been able to enjoy, completely on our own, without any stress or obligations. To celebrate, we started our very own Christmas tradition of what to eat. No mandatory Christmas ham or Janssons frestelse. Instead stuffed turkey and roasted potatoes with trimmings and expensive red wine. Delish!

We feel very fortunate indeed to have food on our table, presents under the tree and Christmassy music on the stereo.

Plus, my long departed brother gave me a splendid idea when we spoke earlier today at the cemetary, when a candle was lit for him as a symbol of him having walked this earth only too short a while.

Thank you, dearly missed little brother. Pax tibiscum in eternam.
