Phew

Well, everyone has gone home now. On the busiest day (Saturday) I fed 18 people (counting myself) with turkey casserole (I know, but it was pretty nice) a pan of bubble and squeak (sprout version) and a great big ham. And cake and cheese and pudding and so on.

My son was well enough to sit up on Christmas day, and by Saturday he was well enough to organise a seasonal game of Rock Band which seemed to be ongoing for most of the next couple of days: 'The Indians send signals from the rocks above the pass' etc.

We didn't watch much telly but last night after everyone had gone I watched Affinity, an ITV adaptation of a Sarah Waters novel. It's a Victorian chiller, with many scenes set in Millbank prison. A prison visitor forms an emotional and sexual affinity to a young woman imprisoned for spiritualism. It was an Andrew Davies script so it wasn't exactly subtle, but I thought it was moving.
