Well, all the shopping is now done, presents wrapped and under the tree, the turkey’s thawing, DH is in the bath (probably snoring by now) the trifle is half made (Mum’s secret recipe, it will be getting custard on top, hope it’s got plenty of alcohol in!) and a bottle or two will soon be open. How’s it going with you all? I seem to have shopped endlessly and I’m sure there will still be things I wished I’d bought but it’s too late now, thank goodness.
We are having a very quiet Christmas Day, just DH, my Mum and me. We had trouble getting Mum here because of the bad weather but my brother managed to fetch her on Monday, phew! It has been very icy here over the last couple of days so last minute shopping and visiting has been curtailed. It even took us quarter of an hour to get off our drive this morning as the wheels kept skidding. A bag of salt did the trick plus a couple of mail sacks under the wheels. It didn’t help that I kept falling about laughing every time a sack flew out from under the wheel as we did a wheel spin! (It was probably hysteria as we were rolling ever closer to my DH’s car!)
Anyway, enough rambling, I’m sure you’ve all got better things to do. I’m very grateful to everyone who looks in here and leaves a comment (or doesn’t), and I really appreciate all the friends I have made over the last two years. Thank you all for your lovely friendship and your encouraging comments and advice. Thank you too to all the people whose blogs I visit throughout the year, you are an inspiration to me.
Whatever you are doing this holiday I hope you have a really lovely Christmas Day.
Merry Christmas and Blessings of the Season!
