It came and went! We managed all of our preparations, and a lovely slap up Christmas dinner of turkey and all the trimmings and more was had and enjoyed by all at our house on Christmas day. Apart from all the stress and hard work we had a lovely day, and lots of fun presents. My favourite has to be the cute little fluffy sheep with spindly legs that goes ‘baa’ when you squeeze it. I’m easily pleased. 😉
Boxing Day evening was spent with lots of the in-laws, followed by a quiet Saturday, then I somehow managed to get the winter vomit bug, yipee. Actaully it wasn’t too bad, as I had it at night, and it didn’t last long, it just left me feeling extremely tired and fed up because I couldn’t enjoy any of the lovely food in the house. I’ve also been avoided like a leper by Rick and our daughter, who fortunately haven’t had the joy. I reakon my defences are so low at the moment because of the stupid cold I still have. At least I’ve had lots of much needed rest now and have lost another couple of pounds weight. Oh, did I tell you I’ve been losing weight since last April? Nah, I didn’t because it was too embarrassing and rather personal, and I couldn’t get myself out of it, but to date I’ve now lost nearly 2 and 1/2 stone, so the bug has had some benefit I suppose, and hopefully it has counteracted the effects of all the lovely Christmas food. I had my first taste again of our lovely festive Nigella ham that we cooked last week, and hope to manage a mince pie later maybe? And of course tomorrow is New Years Eve, so seasons greetings and a happy new year to all my readers.
