Wednesday: Christmas Day

Here we are at last.  It's felt a long time a-coming this year what with shows and colds and concerts and kittens.

Kittens?  Yes, Beth's Tonk, Indigo, has given birth to seven Christmas Kittens (eight, in fact, but one didn't survive, sadly).  I gather that they are very cute and  are round and tubby from mamma cat's milk.

Yesterday was very busy, what with one thing and another.  The house looks pretty neat and tidy now - no, actually that's not true, not with family staying, there's a lot of bits and bobs, but it's clean and organised all the same.
The turkey is ready, not that it took much preparing as I intend to do it the modern way - breast side down, uncovered, no bacon on the top, three hours.  That's what it says and that's what I have read in all the magazines and seen on the telly.
I've remembered to get everything out of the freezer and Beth's Christmas Crumble is made up with extra topping as she likes that.

Hmmm - three hours doesn't sound much, does it?  I think I'll put it in at eighty so that I can give it another hour if necessary.
I must be brave!!!

Below is a card for all my lovely readers.  Pleaee click on the link to open it (or right click and open link).
Merry Christmas to us all.  God bless us, every one!

I have sent you a Jacquie Lawson e-card. If you haven't heard of us, you'll be pleasantly surprised! Our e-cards are known for their artistry and gentle humour.


  1. Thanks for the card it is really lovely. Best of luck with the catering - if all else fails give them plenty to drink and no one will be any the wiser.

  2. Unfortunately, my family doesn't drink a lot, or even at all in some cases. I have my fingers crossed. Good luck with your catering too!
