Happy Christmas Everyone!

We had a bit of a lie in and then enjoyed croissants for a change for breakfast. Then we heard into the living room and opened all our parcels. I sometimes think it is a bit sad once all the prints are open and the wrapping destroyed and anticipations over. However, I was really pleased with everything that Colin has got me - posh shower gels, socks (yes I wanted them), books, chocolate (from Pingado the hamster) and a beautiful silver bracelet. Colin was really pleased with the late night books I had made about our Switzerland trip which I was relieved about.

We had an early snack lunch of smoked salmon and cream cheese rolls which were delicious. Then we (or rather I as Colin is not able to drive after his hand operation) drove the M25 to Karen and Ian’s house and massive new extension for Christmas ‘part deux’!

The new extension is massive and we all have somewhere to sit - even the dogs! We exchanged presents in the afternoon and Chris and two more joined us for Christmas dinner later in the afternoon. We watched the new ‘Top Gun’ on the new massive wall mounted televisions with built in ceiling speakers and it was almost as impressive as having gone to the cinema.

After Christmas dinner we were all stuffed!
