We’ve turned our Christmas into a minimalist affair.
We’ve stopped buying presents and cards for each other.

We give the daughter and her new hubby a ‘doggy bag’ with chocolates, wine, beer and little treats and trinkets, plus some money transferred to their bank account over t’tinternet.
All that’s been done.

Just the two of us for Christmas evening dinner and no entertaining.
