My life outside books:
I haven't worked for the past week!


We had a great Christmas holiday with family visiting from the UK. Actually, my sister-in-law's family was also here so we had people in from China, Washington, Los Angeles, and the UK. We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner, a nice walk on Christmas day after presents, and just hanging out spending time together.

We played a new game that the UK crowd introduced us to: Empire. It's a thinking and memory game that is really fun.

Happy New Year!
