I've got some last minute baking to do tomorrow, some last minute sewing and some present wrapping, and then I'll sing with the choir at our 10 pm Christmas Eve Eucharist. Then we'll be all set for Christmas!
On Christmas Day my Mum will come over about 1 pm and we'll open our presents. One of the nice things about a strictly adult Christmas is that everyone involved gets to sleep in! Our current tradition is to focus on the small sorts of gifts that fit in Christmas stockings, rather than give large or expensive presents to each other.
I'm just cooking a small dinner, just for my Mum, my husband David and me. We're going to break with the traditional turkey, so I've got a lovely roast beef which I'll prepare with Yorkshire Pudding, roast potatoes, green beans, carrots and gravy. We've got a Christmas pudding for pudding for my English husband and my mum, and I'll have something yummy, maybe whip up some meringues. Or I'll just eat part of the Terry's Chocolate Orange I hope is in my stocking!
Then we'll lie about, feeling stuffed and happy, and snuggle the cats ...
|Will our Christmas pud look like this? I doubt it!|
I hope all your seasonal preparations are going well :)
