I am hoping for family harmony. Son and daughter will be home for just a couple of days, son bringing girlfriend for the first time. Daughter is not keen on son's girlfriend. We are starting to warm to her and everyone is always welcome in our home. Initially daughter said if the girlfriend came, she wouldn't, and son said he wouldn't come if girlfriend could not as her family are very split and she always feels torn between them. So I told daughter we did not want to choose between them and perhaps we would go away instead and not host Christmas. Problem solved! She's all talk really. Christmas is not my favourite time of the year but I always make the effort so I am sure it will all be fine for those two short days.
