With floods kept at bay, the final decoration hung,
the last presents made,
and sparkly toes to match the sparkly Christmas tree ...
Christmas began !
A dinner party for 10 on the 21st,
with VERY naughty Baileys Ice cream for pudding.
Just time for a quick 40 winks
before stockings are hung out on Christmas Eve
and found full to bursting the next morning.
Lots of giving and receiving.
( How much do I love my new slipper socks ! )
followed by Christmas Dinner for seven
and lunch and tea for 22 on the 27th.
Sunny dog walks,
one happy dog,
one pooped puppy,
manicures all round as Immi received a Gel nail kit
and now has a little nail bar in her room
and yes, of course there was turkey pie!
And after, when all was quiet and calm...
new books and Tiddly Reindeers from Hotel Chocolat to be enjoyed,
and long neglected crochet discovered hiding behind the sofa waiting to be finished.
( very glad I thought to attach little reminder tags way back then.)
just before the New Year celebrations begin...
a lovely cup of tea and a bit of a sit down.
I hope your Christmas too was just as special
with many happy memories made.
