corders in the hague

It's like having the Corders round for dinner - except the kids don't smash stuff and Mike doesn't drink all your booze. And when you're bored you can get rid of us with a mouse click rather than having to start tidying up the house.

Corder clan at Christmas

So here's the Corder matriarch (seated center, about to administer clip around ear) and her five kids and their various spouses, partners and children. Left to right from the rear: Alex, girlfriend (and now fiancee) of Will, who is behind her and clutching her turkey-distended belly; Sam; me; Boyd; Becky (pictured during the five minutes on Christmas Day when she was not hanging off a ventilator at the local hospital due to savage asthma attacks); hostess (and purchaser of the Wiiiiiii) Sarah; host, cook, carver, pourer Rob; Jim and Sally proving that you can pose for one of these ghastly family photos and take a postprandial snooze at the same time. Perched on top of the sofa are Lilly (and I feel like a bad uncle for not knowing if there's an e in between the last l and the y); Julia; Harry and Esther. Down below, next to grandma is Josh and acting up are Will and Danny who really just want to get the Wii going again.
The first Corder Christmas in years was a huge success - good food, fine wine, sparkling wit all around and Pauline Fowler croaking in Eastenders to cap it all off. It simply doesn't get any better.
