And another Christmas Dadism

"Well, it's been a lovely Christmas" said in an attempt to try and close off the frantic pressie opening and general excitement and opening the door to having a post dinner nap. I found myself saying this on Sunday to no avail...

Two from Christmas

1. When returning to the house on Christmas Eve afternoon Dad would ask, before locking the door: "Anyone going out to midnight mass?"

2. When opening the door [only partially] to a fully anticipated guest [eg Mum at Naworth on Christmas Eve]: "No milk today, thank you".
