We had a nice catchup breakfast at The Railway once we got back in town. Someone's Oyster had expired and ... well, I'll let him tell you about that.
Meanwhile, we've gone through the luggage, and man, it is just like Father Christmas arriving with his bags full of presents, many from his mom, some, well, from me to me courtesy of Lands End and LL Bean. There was maple syrup, Junior Mints, lipstick, books and more books (lots of Tex-Mex cookbooks and many novels by Charlaine Harris), a Shafford Black Cat teapot (from Ebay), jammies, boots, sweaters, Peep Snowmen (for hot chocolate), and ... an escape ladder that's good for up to the third story. Um. Nice try, that one. And shadowdaddy got a new camera, as his broke while he was there. :-)
Now we're going to see about getting everything put away and doing some laundry, and, I think, getting the Christmas tree put up. Yay! He's back!
