1 I spent a busy and productive morning making mountains of mincepies of all sizes and many, many mini sausage rolls and cheesy whirls.
2 Our lovely eldest daughter has come home today to be with us just overnight so we’ve had a mini Christmas afternoon, exchanging presents. Jake made a splendid present deliverer. Dinner in Mikki’s honour was the wonderful Flemish Beef.
3 Just as we were finishing our meal, Daniel, our lovely son rang up from Barcelona. He’ll be in Senegal for Christmas with his fiancee, Ami. He must have heard the toast to him and Ami we had just made! We are about to sit around now with our mulled wine and play games, both grandchildren being safely tucked up.
