Well Christmas was wonderful. A chaotic, shambolically wonderful time was had by all. Stockings and presents were opened, toys played with, a delicious Christmas dinner was cooked by me, (for the first time), and was delicious thanks to Jamie Oliver and his wonderful turkey recipe. It was all over too quickly and as you can see, one little girl almost didn't make it to Christmas dinner as she fell asleep in her plate! I woke her up and she ate about 15 brussel sprouts!!! Paul got his hair back for Christmas, which is what he has always wanted. I have a pile of the most delicious books to read and as one of my New Year's resolutions is to read more books and less magazines I may be blogging less in 2007.
Boxing Day was a much more relaxed affair. We played with toys, went for a cold brisk beach walk and came home to a lovely meal and a spirited game of Monopoly.
The day after Boxing Day I had my Father and his family here which meant more presents and mayhem and then the day after that we had 13 extra people here as Paul's family came. This time we went out for a meal as I was all cooked out.
Tonight we are having a New Year's Eve party here so I will wish you a very Happy New Year. I hope 2007 is a happy and healthy year for you all xxx
