HAPPY BOXING DAY
For those of you not being crushed in the sales, Happy Boxing Day. We had a fabulous Christmas and got lots of our wish lists (Georgiana got her laptop and McFly concert ticket, Lucas got his Harry Potter Lego Hogwarts Express and Battle of Hogwarts and lots, lots more). We had a delicious Christmas meal of scallops, Gammon joint soaked in mulled wine with all the trimmings and home-made Christmas pudding with brandy butter, washed down with lashings of fizz. At tea time, when the family came over, we had a party dinner of mini steak & kidney and chicken pies, coconut chicken skewers, mini pizzas, salmon rolls, cheese & onion muffins with pickles, chutneys etc. and mini bread and butter puddings, mini melt-in-the-middle chocolate sponges, profiteroles, home-made Christmas cake, mince pies and crackers with various cheeses. Needless to say, we have only eaten bacon sandwiches yet today because we are still full and will be going for a fab Christmas Meal at Marcus' Mum's. Hope you all got what you wished for and had a fantastic Christmas Day (and maybe grab a bargain or three at the sales).
