Snap Fidget. 8 arriving (plus 2woofers) to add to the 6 here already.  Place is hoovered, bubble and squeak prepared, wine ready to be least some of my puddings might get eaten.  Unlike other parts of the country, it has stopped raining here, so hoping that a boxing day tramp through the mud will be possible.

busy, busy, busy ...but fun sort of busy

Hooray - the oven timer worked  So turkey is merrily cooking whilst I have a lie-in to compensate for my wanderings in the small wee hours

Good morning to those already here, and in advance for those yet to arrive.  Hope you all enjoy whatever you have planned.  SYL peeps

Lovely cake. Very classy

Time for a quick sit down.  Missing teeth were found, but only after an extensive search that involved the movement of all the bedroom furniture, revealing lots of places that my duster never reaches.

Got nearly all our prep done (to Carols from Kings here too...followed by Perry Como's Christmas album, because it was my Mum's favourite) .....about to head off to a christingle service.  Will dress the turkey later - before i have too many mulled wines.

Hope you are all enjoying your Christmas Eve's .....with luck I will pop in tomorrow morning before the rest of my household stirs......might try Bob Dylan here too

Morning all - first task of the day is to help FiL find his teeth, which he seems to have misplaced.  He had them last night, and our house isn't that big, so shouldn't be an impossible task ....but it wasn't one I had anticipated on my to do list

.....after that I am off to the butchers to get me turkey .....laters peeps

'Twas the night before Christmas...a little homage

Quite brilliant My favourite poem of the season.  You've brought a little tear of happiness to my eye (I'm a soppy old mare)

"Show us ya baubles!"

Morning.  At last, some blue sky and a bit of a chill in the air

Getting up in a bit, then making a chocolate mousse before I brave the SM later.  Both Dad's arriving later today, and a Christmas dinner at our next door neighbours this evening. Sniffles subsiding here - hope Wonky's and Fidget's are in retreat too.

Flooding news awful
