As it turned out, the Chinese delegation didn't arrive till 4:00, which worked out quite well for all concerned. They spent at least an hour at the house, with Fiorella giving them their gift bags and making over the darling baby while Husband answered their questions about the use of the fireplaces, a no-no in Hong Kong. The visitors were charming, and Fio hopes she and Husband were too.
It seems weird to be back to real life after a week of concentrating on NOTHING but Christmas. Fiorella's first concern now is getting Moira's story written, although she'll have to take her baby car into Mazda sometime soon. Husband says its radiator is leaking coolant, whatever that means--apparently, nothing good.
Fiorella intends to leave the Christmas decor up for at least a month. After all, she didn't finish it up till Tuesday.
