christmas reading

I am on my way to Edinburgh, where I plan to spend Christmas by the fireside with family and friends and puppies, eating and drinking and making merry. I'll make sure to leave time to read Christmas Pudding in the evenings, too. Mitford's sister, Jessica, recalled that during the writing of Christmas Pudding, Nancy spent months 'giggling helplessly by the drawing room fire, her curiously triangular green eyes flashing with amusement, while her thin pen flew along the lines of a child's exercise book'... A frolicsome Christmas read.
