There was no conflict, just peace and companionship, caring and food and eventually, exhaustion. It was a memorable Christmas. We did not expect Grandma ( mum ) to be here so this is a bonus. Tess is carrying her second child and even Pandy and AJ showed. Sadly Tony did NOT hear from his son ( although Tony tried!!) and Geni and Leonnie got to spend time with us and with their father and his girlfriend. Geni, Amy and Leonnie epistomise the joy of this time we spent together.
