Oh I'm so glad to be at home. No more work now until New Year's Eve. Being able to take the boys to school and pick them up is lovely although they finish so late this year (tomorrow) that tempers are short and over excitement is getting to them both.
There've been a lot of lovely things on this week; church services, concerts, parties and outings. Think they're ready for some quiet time at home before the big day.
I've been on a mammoth wrapping spree, settled in by the tree with Nigella, Nigel and Hugh keeping me company. Today I've moved onto the food; dropped orders in town to collect early on Christmas Eve, a bit of supermarket shopping done and tomorrow the baking starts.
We don't go mad for food at Christmas, but I do like a few tasty favourites for our feast. Don't get me wrong we do indulge, but not overly so I don't think. Homemade, fresh, zesty, tangy and delicious tastes are our cup of tea.
The decorations are almost finished and thankfully we got the cards and parcels posted just in time. Can't wait to shut the door when the boys are home tomorrow and settle in for the festivities. Xxxx
