This is officially the last Christmas my husband and I will spend alone – well, not really alone, but as a pair.
It is the last Sunday before Christmas, officially the 23rd of December. My husband is off looking for a Christmas tree and I am in the kitchen baking delicious desserts for our friends and ourselves for the holiday ahead.
This years Christmas and New Years Eve were spent at our home in Germany. First, while walking home from the night course I teach, the vendors at our Weinachtsmarkt were removing the decorations from their stalls, so I said to my husband in English that we should see if we could get a tree.
I recently had a birthday. I am one year wiser than I was just a few short weeks ago. One of the things I really wanted was a cat.
