Hello all you lovely festive people!
I'm afraid time has rather ran away with me. That and a bug that saw me out of action for two days, has meant that I haven't managed to do any blog reading (which is actually a daily happy of mine), so please accept my apologies. I shall be having a gander over the Christmas holiday.
BUT I have my penultimate happy post. As always joining in with Jen
This is Olly's first 'Father Christmas' Christmas. He knows that his presents are being delivered by a chubby man in a red suit. He has been singing carols and Christmas songs at nursery. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer is a particular favourite. I have tried to strike a balance between a low key event and complete over-excitement!! It's been a challenge....
This year we will be having Christmas dinner at my sister in law's house. Her son is flying into Heathrow from Sri Lanka (fingers crossed everyone that he manages to get home. The weather has disrupted everything). I have made the desserts, mince pies and the larder is stocked with yummy goodies. I am prepared for the next week of eating, drinking and being merry with family and friends.
So it's Christmas Eve. The presents have been wrapped. I am looking forward to my first Baileys coffee later this afternoon. Olly and I are accompanying my sister in law to pick up her turkey. A real live one. Her Christmas present. His name will be Godfrey, and he is possibly the luckiest Turkey in Cornwall.
The family will be here later. I'm cooking a chilli and jacket potatoes. Just a bit of one pot cooking that everyone can help themselves to. Some festive pop songs, banter and laughter. And then after Olly has gone to bed, Marc and I will wrap the last of the pressies together. A little tradition of ours.
I'd like to wish all my friends out there in this rather strange and lovely world of the blog a very
With all my love,
