How was your Christmas? Do hope you enjoyed the occasion and the festivities.
We had hot weather, so cold meat and salads seemed the most appropriate, rather than hot up the kitchen with roast meats and veggies.
Dad’s presence was sorely missed (it was one of his favourite times of the year) and we were all a bit raw to indulge in reminiscences, but our beautiful Poppet saved the day from becoming too maudlin. She enjoyed cuddles with her Nanna while we admired her new shoes
and she helped hand out the presents (holding firmly to Mummy’s hand on her deliveries). The greatest fun was watching her open her presents. We scored well with her giving Poppet an elephant box (she loves elephants) into which I’d placed a tea-set (thanks GJ!).
Nanna also did well with her present of a little golf set, The Golfer only too happy to help Poppet with her swing
As I headed off to bed, the sky was aglow with a full moon – apparently that hasn’t happened on Christmas Day for many a year.
