Safely back home and everything protected from the frost that is coming tonight. Youngest son gave me a beautiful orchid, six bottles of my favourite wines and a big box of chocs. Wore my lovely new jumper of 100% wool with the Kew label from my youngest daughter. Son No2 gave me a beautiful new watch with an owl on the face and a metal owl for the garden (I like owls and have quite a collection). Son no.3 and his partner gave me a splendid new wicker basket for my garden harvesting, stuffed with more wine, crab, lobster, salmon pate, Camembert, cake and meringues, biscuits, special tea, and special pasta, (organic corn and quinoa),sundried tomato pesto,and wonderful chutneys and chocolate. Big box of chocolate biscuits from the other Mum and Dad too. The Xmas meal was absolutely perfect. Only fly in the ointment was Son No1 has the 'flu but he will come to visit as soon as he is well. There is very little space in the kitchen right now for the hordes of food and presents are everywhere. Boy next door gave me "Town and Country" leather gardening gloves so well protected for fruit pruning and his parents gave me even more luscious food! I certainly need my new fridge freezer I got in the sales which is due to arrive Dec,30th in time for New Year hospitality.
