Christmas is now gone from Carr House, for some it is over when Boxing Day comes. But here it stays awhile longer, all the decorations are taken down, the greenery sits in the compost, the trees go back into their boxes to sleep for another year, and all the rooms are clean. I miss the boxes and the excitement, I know it will be back again but it still is sad to watch them be piled in the van and taken away. January is a sad month. But right now I will go sleep and when I awake I will be in a much better spirit. A nap can cure anything.
