merry monday

Well, I guess that's that! Christmas has officially come and gone, and I must admit I feel mostly relieved. It was lovely to spend the extra-long weekend with the family playing nonstop games of BANANAGRAMS and stuffing myself with chocolate, cheese and wine, but after a while all good things start to feel a little bit sickening (at least, the chocolate, cheese and wine do... the BANANAGRAMS are still awesome).

I'm currently coveting a train trip (although we will take the car to maximize freedom of movement) from Quebec to Newfoundland & New Brunswick:
