Christmas went pretty well here. I'm gradually getting more ambitious with my dinner - a few years ago I used to just grab a random item out of the freezer, whereas yesterday I had three different real vegetables (potatoes, sprouts, carrots), as well as the Quorn roast (which I assume was derived from some kind of vegetable/fungus/slime at some point in its career). There would have been a fourth vegetable (parsnips), except that I'd neglected to buy a peeler, so I had them today instead. Phear my l33t c00k3ry skills, or something like that :)

Aside from that, I've watched a lot of TV, and emptied a few more boxes. I now have a large supply of waste cardboard, and my conscience is telling me that I shouldn't just throw it out, but I'm trying to find the motivation to trek over to the recycling centre (30 mins walk from here), since there's no kerbside collection. Ah well, I'm sure it will be good exercise for me.

And finally, some festive news from the colonies: Father sells off kids' presents on Ebay. Brings a tear to the eye...
