Christmas Day, 1660, according to Samuel Pepys

25th December (1660). From the Diary of Samuel Pepys:

“In the morning very much pleased to see my house once more clear of workmen and to be clean, and indeed it is so, far better than it was that I do not repent of my trouble that I have been at.'

Merry Christmas Unbounders! Thank you very much for your support. I hope that you have cleared out all your workmen too!

All the best
