My daughter Leone summed up our Christmas perfectly on Facebook:
There's always lots of activities at a Woodcock Christmas. I don't know how we would adapt if we were housebound on Christmas Day.
Our family - not that many of us compared to the gathering of my brothers and sisters and their offspring in Australia, 26 adults and 13 children at last count. But next year there will be another grandson in the frame. And, who knows, one day Bernie might come home to join us. Miss you, Bern.
