Busman's Holiday II

Turkey is beautiful. Soup is simmering. There isn't enough, but I'll manage. Stuffing is cooking. I need a shower and the table needs to be set.

My brother is here. My brother-in-law and his family are here. My inlaws arrived two hours early. I have one more guest. I'm hiding in my bedroom right now and haven't even greeted some people.

It's all going to be fine, but I am feeling anxious.


At times like this I feel so glad that here in the UK we don't have anything quite like Thanksgiving - Christmas is something that can be avoided or modified, particularly in such a multicultural country. So no pressure; anything we let ourselves in for is purely voluntary.
