Good morning, everyone. What a damp day it was yesterday but it was bright and warm inside so I counted my blessings and was content.
Yesterday, we had a very quiet morning, Dad and I, although mine started very early as I didn't sleep at all well. I came down, sorted out the turkey bits (all but the 'crown' part) and got them into the instant pot where it all bubbled away most of the morning, making the place smell like Christmas all over again. I then felt sleepy again so got a few more hours in bed before starting the day properly.
Beth and Al came round for tea and then Beth challenged me to another game of Scrabble to get her revenge (ooops - I won again, but only just!). We neither of us play a very good game; no high scores on triple word squares or anything like that, but it's good fun.
The Scrabble set is actually Dave and Anna's and I must get one for myself.
Today, Christmas is pretty much over really, although I keep the decorations up until Twelfth Night, just putting away a few little bits and bobs in the meanwhile. At some point this morning, Dad leaves so I will have bedding to wash, dry and iron and I need to slice the other half of the turkey breast as he's taking home some pots of one-portion turkey in gravy to keep in his freezer for future meals. No stuffing or pigs left, sadly. He's also taking some Christmas cake and I hope to persuade him to take a pack of cream crackers home, not because I don't like them but because I do!!
Then I have a few hours to myself and I intend to sit down in front of the telly and catch up on all the things I missed and set to record, probably starting with the Kings service as I was popping in and out like a yo-yo cooking dinner as it was on.
I've just remembered - it is Friday so the cleaners will be here at some point. Well, the house is pretty tidy really so I won't have much to do to get the place ready for them.
Well, better go and sort out that turkey breast for Dad and have another coffee before I get dressed. Have a good day, whether your Christmas is continuing or not.
