Seasons Greetings!

What a crazy day is has been already. YT’s birthday and EPI and I had a long, leisurely brunch all planned. EPI went to the bakery and came back with rolls and flowers; however, no sooner was he back than a call came that he’d forgotten something incredibly important at work, so he had to take off. YT was planning to kick back and take it easy, maybe write a blog post – however a few minutes later the car repair shop that currently has my car disassembled into several pieces called to say that, unfortunately, the spare parts needed [rear shock absorbers] are unavailable in the entire country and it is completely uncertain when they will arrive. Could be weeks.

Meanwhile, EPI returns and I could hear him a mile away – the exhaust had gone on his car. So we’re madly trying to ring places to get this fixed today before the holidays and also trying to make [our delayed] brunch and CRASH a glass shatters to the floor. Meanwhile, while vacuuming the glass splinters the bacon starts to burn in the oven, but EPI is in touch with a place that says that, if he wants the exhaust fixed today, he has to bring the car in IMMEDIATELY.

And Polly the cockatiel watches all this with great bemusement, perched in her cage on her one good leg.

However, the real point of this post, dear readers, is not to moan about our [rather amusing you have to admit] misfortunes, but rather to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or Delicious Kick-back and be Lazy Days from all of us here at the Weather Report.

    Happy Birthday!
    I don’t suppose ‘rear shock absorbers’ are something we could bring over for you, are they? 🙂
    Also Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (whilst I am it)

    All the best for the end of the year from snowless Toronto.

    By the by, TVO, our educational television, had a program about Iceland and its kreppa. The honorary consul of Iceland, Jon Something, spoke nicely about Niceland.
