After a brief return to lockdown, during which I continued my research in the in-house library and assisted the gardner in tending the small kitchen garden,we are now starting preparations for the Christmas season.
A tree has been acquired for the lounge and trimmed in sparkling silver and red. One of the junior agents has taken it upon themself to decorate the entire house and has succeeded in creating a veritable explosion of flower garlands, greenery, tinsel and twinkling lights.
This will be my first year in a very long time that I am not home with my family for the holiday season but as time travel is still not available for all but the most dire of emergencies my fellow agents stationed here will be my family this year.
Until next time I wish everyone a magical holiday season. Stay safe. Be good to your families.
