1 I spent another happy morning cooking! I’ve made three stuffings, one with lemon and cranberry along with the sausage meat base for chicken no 1, the next with leeks, chives and garlic for chicken no 2 and a fat free one for Mr S whose gall bladder op is on 29th December so he has to eat very low fat until then – hard for him at Christmas.
2 I listened as always, to the 9 lessons and carols, as I always did with my Mum and Dad. Cheers to them and other absent friends this Christmas.
3 Mr Rice is a star. He takes over the cooking on Christmas Eve – smoked salmon and cream cheese for lunch and a wonderful baked ham for dinner leaving me free and ready for the morrow! The lovely KJ has sorted all the veg and any minute now we are in for a feast!
4 Our lovely neighbours called in at 4.30 for what is becoming a tradition. Happy times. And a Happy Christmas to all my readers – doubt I’ll be writing tomorrow!
5 I just have to add – the joy of seeing a 3 year old putting out the mince pie for Father Christmas and oats for his reindeer. An early morning awaits us I think!
