I'm temporarily indulging in a certain amount of self-pity while my family is opening the sparkling wine, and I am sitting in my apartment packing my household back into boxes. For those of you who haven't followed my moving fun, due to an unfortunate time-ordering-problem of the previous tenants paired with my own stupidity, I will have to move some floors upwards during the next days. So I won't be home for Christmas this year. Otoh, I don't have to repeat my annual summary a dozen times to update all the neighbors, friends, and relatives. And no brothers will have picked away all the nougat pralines while I am blogging.
