Merry Christmas All.

Just popping in to wish every one of you a lovely Christmas day tomorrow, however you choose to spend it, surrounded by family or, like Ilona, perfectly happy to be on her own in a peaceful cottage.

We're off to DD3 and BF's for our special meal. She's so excited to be hosting a family Xmas in their own place. Although I won't be hosting the meal I've still spent a large part of today cooking the vegetarian options as they only have a small oven. I've also done our gammon for Xmas breakfast in the slow cooker and sausages in the halogen oven. Crusty rolls will also be done in the halogen in the morning. We've always had cold gammon with crusty rolls and various pickles and chutneys since I was a child. Just one of those traditions carried on through the generations. I'm not sure who will turn up for breakfast but as usual there's enough to feed a small army! 

With everything now ready as far as possible, I'm going to relax this evening with a drink and a biscuit and hope all goes well for DD and BF tomorrow. I'm so looking forward to having the whole family together...the first time since June now that the 3 girls have moved out and DD1 lives in Basingstoke.

So, that's all for now folks. Have yourselves a Merry Little Christmas Day!
