First of all, many thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday. I was rather busy yesterday but will reply when I get home and can use my big screen - it all gets a bit cluttered on the laptop screen.
It was a lovely day, despite the weather! Pressies round the tree, a bright and tasty buffet type lunch, a traditional dinner and a bit more alcohol than was good for me. The turkey cooked brilliantly, as Kellybronzes always do, and there's so much left over! There would be anyway but I was factoring in my brother taking a good lot back home with him and he informed me yesterday that he has his own back oop north so won't be taking any this year. Ditto for Christmas pudding!
It's just as well I love leftovers, isn't it?
Today is the calm between two Christmasses and I am going to make the most of it by doing not an awful lot. I'll be driving back home after breakfast, unpacking, sorting out the myriad of food I shall have with me and then I will be strolling along to Morrisons to get some Christmas flowers. As I was away over the weekend, I didn't get any earlier and if there are none left (or no good ones) I shall do without and treat myself in the New Year.
After that, I will do a few outstanding preparations (e.g. a bit of wrapping up and a few cards) before settling down for a telly-fest and a knitting session. I always like to have something on the go, knitting-wise, as it keeps my hands occupied and out of the proverbial biscuit tin! I don't have anything I have to make or finish so I've started knitting a Jean Greenhowe dolly. At the moment she's in bits in a poly bag so I might start sewing her up and stuffing her. Here's a photo from Jean's web site - my Emily will have yellow hair as I was out of brown.
Finally, here's the last Advent offering and it really has to be this one. I'm looking forward to this year's version on TV later on.
