Christmas inconsequence

Opening and then turning on an exceedingly generous present from Kate's parents at 8.57am this morning - a digital radio - we were treated to some beeps and whistles, heralding the announcement of the launch of a new radio station, theJazz, at 9am. So we treated ourselves to that before heading off to church, courtesy of a lift from my brother (and new sister-in-law), who, by the way, hates jazz.

After our lunch guests departed we listened to 'The More the Merrier' by Anne Fine on BBC7 (courtesy of the wonderful new digital radio!) If you thought that comedies about dysfunctional modern family Christmases were a bit passe or even constituted gilding the lily, you were wrong. This one is strongly recommended :-)
