So that’s that for another year.
Spent a fortune on presents and food.
Enough left over to feed the 500.
Blessed to have family and young kids around to make it special.
Home made soup and a big dinner, a few bottles of prosecco.
Played charades and watched the new Billy Connolly DVD.
Cosmopolitans with the girls.
Had a nap.
A wee whisky for dad and large port for me.
Cheese board all to myself!
It wasn’t perfect.
But it was perfect enough and some times you just need to count your blessings.
1:45am and time to empty and refill the dishwasher.
Whoever sang “I wish it could be Christmas every day”. Was a complete fucking idiot! 🙂
Chances are that it was a guy with a wife who did all the hard work of planning, organising, preparation, cooking, serving and tidying up afterwards and went largely unappreciated while he sat back, ate like a king. drank wine and beer, fell asleep in front of the tv and enjoyed his day.
Whats the chances? 🙂
Merry Christmas one and all, I hope that you had as good a day I had.
