What a year, some people have had it really tough and heart-breakingly sad. My year hasn't been tough, just a little bit sad and dull in places, so to cheer up those quiet days after Christmas (and this was planned before things got even worse and we were shifted into Tier 4 AKA Lock-down) I decided not to buy the Folklore diary, The Almanac of the Year, an Advent Calendar and a present for Christmas Day but instead to have some special gifts for the 12 days of Old Christmas. I haven't wrapped them but have put them all in a box, (without looking at the books) and will take out one each day. At the moment there are only 8 things but hopefully I shall think of something else for the other days,
This must be sung!
On the First Day After Christmas
My Christmas treat will be
A whole tub of chocolates just for me
Yummy yum yum. I won't eat them all at once! (And I had more as a gift, so enough to last me all January at least)
Thank you to everyone for so many lovely comments yesterday. Hope everyone had a good day. I just about remembered how to cook a roast dinner for 3 grown ups and one small person - difficult nowadays as it's such a rare occurrence. The Yorkshire puds were still in the freezer until I started dishing up - good thing they were the 4 minute ones!
We didn't eat or drink too much and I sent Brother in Law and Youngest daughter home with some of the roast chicken.
Today I've a big heap of dirty dishes to do- we didn't bother yesterday as there are plenty of days without visitors ahead. Then there are more presents to unwrap as yesterday I was busy in the kitchen in the morning and playing with Oldest Granddaughters new presents in the afternoon.
I've got 3 various DVDs to watch and later and some things are circled in the Radio Times so it will be a good day.
