So, Christmas Eve... cook, cook, cooking! Filo parcels for the big day, mushroom ricey things for Boxing Day and some Rocky Road just because we had the stuff. Needless to say I went to bed feeling very smug that all was prepared in the food department.
The day itself... not too early a start in this household. The Jammers are very considerate and enjoy a lie in like their parents. Father Christmas did them proud and we're now wondering if the Ginger Beer kit he left the 10 year old will be alcoholic or not!! We'll have to be the first to sample it.
We were all pleased that my sister's plane made it through the snowy skies in time for Christmas and we spent plenty of time with her and my dad. Lots more visitors over the next few days and all of a sudden we were left by ourselves. what to do?
We're not huge telly fans but I had been waiting and waiting for Toast and fortunately it did not disappoint! Also got into Just William more for the fab vintage sets than the plot. Feeling quite inspired about moving to a 1930's house now - phew could have been an expensive mistake!
Last week a lovely customer of ours was kind enough to give us free tickets to the town museums. So today we headed down the road to The Teddy Bear Museum.http://www.teddybearmuseum.co.uk
