Christmas table laid for 4
Christmas morning was just hubby and I, we prepped veg together and Skyped both of hubby's sons and their families. Su and David after a morning together came for lunch a beautiful turkey meal, I love turkey. We watched films in the afternoon, paying to see 'Inside Out' a funny film. Later Call the Midewife and of course Downton Abbey, a perfect family day. We each had smaller gifts this year, all agreeing to curb the excess of previous years, less chocolates and nibbles, but still loads of fun, and too much food.
All the leftover veg from the serving bowls have this morning been blended and seasoned and made into 'Christmas dinner soup' which we have every boxing day, no waste and a tasty soup for after our walk. It's a lazy day, doing nothing much this morning, later we will do our normal Boxing day walk along the coast at Lee-on-the-Solent, it's dry here. Later cold turkey sandwiches.
We did watch the news this morning, hoping the north west of England would miss the weather storm, no luck there, our feeling are with all the flooded homes and those who at this point live with the fear of flooding. Plus the wild fires in Australia, not every one enjoying a festive season.
