Yay!!  I am just getting it now and after a bit of a post-Christmas clean up I am looking forward to sitting down and enjoying it in peace this afternoon.  (hoping the kids will hit the new trampoline or the pool with DH so I can watch it alone - Bliss)

Anyone else been hanging out for it?

I had a feeling that was going to happen as well, just not the way that it did. America is calling and I guess you can't pass up the career opportunities.

I didn't realise Call the Midwife had done a Christmas special as well, looking forward to watching that.
