A Christmas 2021 Recipe: Take a cup of stress, add a spoonful of joy and a pinch of good cheer; stir vigorously

We have made it to Vancouver for Christmas with the girls. It was a bit touch and go for a while. Work was crazy right up till the bitter end, international travel was complicated (to say the least), and Omicron raged. I have been trying to write a post for weeks, but to tell you the truth, I am knackered. But we are here, we are extremely grateful to be able to spend the holidays with the girls and to see other family and friends (albeit while in the very cold and rainy outdoors), and to end the year with a week or two of respite.

Yesterday, I saw the First Dog on the Moon cartoon in the Guardian and it summed up this year perfectly:

Best wishes to all over this holiday period.
