While Beth and L played with the mini bowls set in one of the crackers, I cleared up and found, much to my annoyance, that the dishwasher needed rinse aid and I didn't have any.
So after they had gone, I had another healthy walk to Morrisons, had a few more chats as I went round and came home with the rinse aid and a - cough - few more items that I didn't need!
Just before lunch, Dad arrives. I've planned two light meals. Cheese and crackers for lunch and one steak between the two of us with sweet potato chips and vegetables for dinner.
Which reminds me - it's the service of lessons and carols this evening. I always watch the telly one because, with my less-than-perfect hearing, the live radio one is lost on me, sadly.
Anyway - here it is. Once in Royal David's City.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE TO EVERYONE
