Then a traditional Christmas Day with family: affection and fun and gifts and a delicious dinner and a lovely walk down across the weir and along the river...and then we listened to the Queen's traditional Christmas speech, which was exceptionally good this year. How lovely that she mentioned Mother Teresa - and noted that it is now SAINT Teresa. And how lovely that, talking about Christians she stated clearly "I am one of them".
