I have had the best Christmas!!
My friend came up from Essex on Christmas Eve and the fun started there…
Christmas Day dawned and look what Santa brought Hippie….
Pink pj’s and she loved them…
My new oven worked perfectly which was just as well as my 92 year old uncle and his wife came for lunch.
Bless him – he cleaned his plate..
As did my two little helpers
The Christmas cake was lit and photographed and admired – it did look good though
Take a good look
‘cos three quarters of it has gone…. I have never had a cake eaten so quickly
On Boxing Day my friend and I chilled out… we chatted to her son in Singapore on webcam and during the conversation I was invited to join my friend on her trip to Singapore in March and, guess what….. I am going to go… me, the scared of flying lady is going to do a 14 hour flight to the Far East! Fortunately I don’t think I’ve got my head around it yet or I‘d be panic stricken already.
Later that day we threw the Christmas dinner leftovers into a pie dish and made Christmas Dinner Pie which we ate whilst slobbing in front of the TV
It even had holly leaves!!!
She left for home on Sunday morning and I cooked another turkey because my lovely son and daughter in law were coming for Christmas Day revisited. More presents, good food, wine and party games – a good time was had by all!
But now its the end of another year – its been eventful with highs and lows as usual but 2010 looks promising – not only have I been invited to Singapore but also to Tenerife and Spain – better start saving now I think!!
I’d like to wish everyone who reads this a very Happy New Year – wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, keep safe!
Oh and one last thing …. yes, its another picture of that cake
But this time with yours truly!!!!
