Advent Obsession


"Helen's made a paper village" James told his mother during a discussion about Christmas decorations.

"Why?" she asked me, looking at me with that blank look of affectionate incomprehension that so often features in our conversations.

"Because it made me happy," I answered.

And I realised as I said it that I really didn't need to add anything else.
