The day started with a viewing at 9:30 - which considering the amount of "last minute" tidying and cleaning that is required is effectively the crack of dawn.
By mid-morning, we were back in the house and by lunchtime our visitors from NYC had arrived and we spent the afternoon playing lots of games as first the rain, then the snow fell outside.
When the kids went on their way to bed, we embarked on a four and a half hour session learning and playing this excellent Firefly game. So good to have geeky gamey friends!
Complicated, intense and awesome.
