"You know, I thought about not coming this year," confessed Sarah.
"I'm glad you changed your mind," said Alastair, passing her another glass of mulled wine.
"So am I. It's nice to get away from all the chaos at home. Preparing for Christmas hasn't got any easier with practice!"
Alastair laughed. "At least you have Luke to help you out."
"Yes - but unfortunately his idea of helping is to make mathematically precise timetables for me that I haven't a hope of sticking to. I've tried to hint that washing up every now and then would be more use, but to no avail."
