Table for 9...



Here are two more pics from my Christmas camera; these are pictures of the ironing and table laying I did from 1.00 until 4.00 this morning in order to ease the busy Boxing Day. We had 9 for dinner today so it seemed only right to do my bit. I put on the radio, poured a beer and ironed a massive table cloth that would ordinarily be beyond me. As I went to bed at 4, my brother was stirring to wake at 5 to get about his day's work! When I woke again at 8, I made he and I bubble and squeak for brekker using the veggies and stuffing and roasties left over from Christmas Day! I then tried to get myself into a cardboard box that my brother reckoned was too small for my six feet four and a bit frame; he was right and I got stuck.

A very fine day today with constant delights and pleasant text messages.

Cold meats, salads and potato salad for dinner tonight - my absolute favourite meal of the year, and also a shared favourite meal, I discovered.

My pretty friend Helen is calling in here tomorrow on her way home from seeing her parents.

Happy, thankful days!

3 hours is a long time to take for ironing a table cloth!

As you went to bed A&E was fairly quiet!!

Well, it was two large linen cloths and nine napkins too!

The words 'ironing' and 'tablecloth' come together rarely in the same sentence here - almost as rarely as 'ironing' and 'napkins'. I hope it stayed clean!
