This is one of my favourite Christmas tree ornaments: Karen gave it to me :)
Christmas Day was lovely - the girls really liked their gifts and the dinner turned out well! For once my turkey stayed juicy; I cooked it to the specifications of my CA friend A - it was wonderful as was the gravy. We all had a great day and I can heartily recommend Nigella Lawson's Poinsettia cocktail - champagne, Cointreau and cranberry juice - chin, chin :)
Today was very relaxed; the weather was good so in the afternoon Phil and I walked up Helsby Hill. Afterwards we phoned California - it was great to talk to our friends there - we miss them all loads.
Hope everyone had a great Boxing Day.
