    Great idea! If we get ourselves off the couch we aim to go to the AGA, the RAM and the Muttart conservatories these holidays. If we get off the couch… 🙂

      I know what you mean. The Christmas season seems to be the only time of year when loafing is mandatory, and (at least for a short time!) guilt free.
