Christmas Eve

What's behind your sofa, our space is full, these are all for Will, George and Molly, with 1 bag for mummy and daddy, not all from us, some are from cousins. We will take them tomorrow when we go for the day. Please ignore the dead looking Orchids and the huge unsued rack of CD's, where else can I keep them. 

 It's typical Christmas weather here, it's dull, grey and warm, it might rain, we might be lucky and it stays dry. We got up late, daughter arrived just after, her shopping order from Asda had 25 substitutions, most of which she sent back, so a quick walk to the village, pop into Tesco and Iceland and got most of what she needed, we went with her, nothing much we needed. I was shocked to see our favourite drinking chocolate has gone up 25p, we still have a couple a pots here, daughter got a pot as Will had told her how great our drinking chocolate was. 

I have been crafting this week, I will post about what I am doing soon, I have started a new project, something I have been thinking about for ages, and I'm stitching hexagons, they were cut out and left in my work box. 

I want to do a quick clean of the house, just the middle of the rooms and both bathrooms, the kitchen is cleaned every time we use it, it won't take long, then we will settle down and watch a couple of movies. Our meal is planned for tonight, M&S southern fried chicken, with muffins and garlic bread, simple to make, and very tasty. Tomorrow we plan to be at daughters just after 9am, hubby is head chef and he wants the turkey in early, with 2 younger grandchildren, a late lunch would not work. We will leave opening our gifts until we come back home, much easier to wait and enjoy each gift. 

I hope tonight and all through the festive period you are with those you love, if you are on your own, I hope you have planned the best treats for yourself, as they say on TV, 'your worth it'.
Merry Christmas to everyone xx

  8. Hello Marlene, Rachel here on the phone hence it posting as anonymous! It sounds like a wonderful Christmas Day was planned and I hope it went perfectly x We have drawers of blooming CDs. We do use them in the car as it’s an old fashioned cd player still in there! But the rest of the time we do use Alexa or Siri or just the TV for
    Music. We also had M&S southern fried chicken for tea on Xmas eve - easy and delicious! Can’t wait to see your new craft project xx
