I haven’t done any school-related activity so far these holidays. I am unlikely to do any tomorrow. January exams should be interesting.
Food pills got another mention this chapter, so you know they’re still about.
When you have a special occasion like Christmas, it’s a reasonable assumption that all the characters will be celebrating it in some shape or form, which equates to multiple Christmas chapters.
Incidentally, I considered having Johnny wish everyone Happy Holidays instead, in the interest of political correctness, but nobody says that in the UK, and I figured that the holiday could become more commercialised and less religious over time, so that by the time this story is set, it’s a secular festival.
It almost feels like Christmas already. We had relatives round today. They ate with us, we pulled crackers, and there’s a tremendous amount of washing up still to do.
