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!
