Thursday: Christmas Day

So here it is at last.  The so-called Big Day.  As always I am up early after a reasonable night's sleep and am raring to go.  The turkey is out of the fridge to go into the oven at 8:30.  That will give me plenty of time at the other end.  Everything else is more or less prepared now so it will just be cooking and assembling.  It's just a traditional dinner, nothing fancy or complicated so, really, timing is the key.

We had a pleasant family evening yesterday.  Dave and Anna's pizzas were, as always, absolutely delicious and there was very little left over, thank goodness, because I have no idea where I could have put it.  We have some left over garlic bread and I think I might zizz it to make garlic infused breadcrumbs for the freezer or maybe to coat any vegetable patties I might make for lunch tomorrow (depending on leftovers).

Anyway, I doubt you want to read my early morning waffle today.  I will shut up now.  Thank you for reading and I wish you all a very, very happy and peaceful Christmas Day.

I love your banner on this page - very pretty and atmospheric.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day. Boxing Day now - my goodness, the time does fly.
I am doing one of my all-night work sessions, but have so enjoyed reading your blog during my coffee break.
Have a lovely Boxing Day. :o)

Thanks, Sonja! Do you recognise where in the house it was taken?
We had a lovely time, thanks. I hope you did too. Good luck with the all-nighter.

Yes, I do recognise - along the sideboards against the far wall. :o) It looks so pretty with the candles and everything. :o)
It sounds as if you have had a wonderful time and I am sure the Christmas dinner will have been an absolute delight - we have been lucky to sample it previously and how delicious it was! :o)
The all-nighter went well, thanks, but I go so tired at about 6ish that I had to go and lie down. Had a couple of hours very deep sleep which was great and now it's back to the grindstone. :o)
Have a lovely day. S.xxxx

That's right! Well done. The dinner was great, thanks, as wqas Boxing day. Back to normality, more or less, now!
Take care and make sure you get some rest too.
