Tonight I am spending my time constructing homemade Christmas cards. Each one takes a considerable amount of time to assemble. This year I have decided to make cascading waterfall cards with pop-up snowflakes inside. A lot of fun.
This morning and afternoon one of my housemates and I made a full Christmas dinner for eleven, which was quite a challenge as I have been feeling under the weather all day. We do quite a lot of entertaining at the moment and so have the opportunity to cook some pretty fancy meals. We had a four-course meal on Sunday; tomorrow I will have to help prepare another Christmas meal, this time for nine. So far we have only had one evening without dessert all semester, which I think is pretty good.
My final lectures before the Christmas break take place tomorrow morning. I will probably have a Chinese test in the evening. I will also have to narrow down my options for accommodation next year. After tomorrow I will collapse on Friday and then travel back on the bus on Saturday.
