I'm in two minds about this.
Although I'd love to spend time with family I was sort of hoping that the rules would still be strict over Christmas so I wouldn't have to make any decisions about if or who I should mix with.
Yes, I know what you mean. I had more or less decided we would be on our own, but after talk of an ease up of restrictions, DH said “Well, we can have DS, DIL and two GC, to us, we’ll eat at separate tables in the (large) conservatory, they can go home after lunch”.
Hmm, yes, but can imagine after a glass or two of wine, they will want to stay on a while, and TBH, for once, I am quite reconciled to a quiet Christmas on our own.
If the government categorically said, no mixing, and we are in a high area this time, that would settle it, but can imagine I will be viewed as a killjoy.
