DS Jonny is ashore for Christmas, here he is contemplating all the dishes that need doing! EEK! It was great to have him here, I feel like I don't see him so much any more. I miss him a lot.
I even miss all the ructions he causes with his brother and the wails of 'MMUUUuuuUUUM!' as something kicks off.
Victoria Beckham, or Posh Spice as she is sometimes known, called in for a whiff of vino!! LOL DD Kay got her hair chopped off last week. She'd hate me if I said it made her look like VB!!
The beautiful pink tulips are from Mum, she was here for her second Christmas and seemed to enjoy herself. She did manage to take off before the camera appeared though. Hunney is reading one of his gifts.
Here's how the table looked before we all sat down. The turkey crown is in the oven and posh spice is helping me to clean up as I go.
If you remember I had Christmas late, on Saturday in fact because I had to work early shifts on both Christmas day and boxing day. It just made sense to book holidays on the weekend.
Hunney and I opened our stockings on Christmas day. (The kids were with their Dad, so no clash, no groans because they had two Christmas dinners, or someone didn't keep an eye out and stop them from eating ALL the chocolate.........)
Then on Saturday when we all got together we opened our mountain of gifts. I have to say I was spoiled!
Hunney was in charge of the camera and those pictures he remembered to take are blurred! LOL I'll take some more and show them another day.
Well like Christmas, I'll be working over New Year, but to be honest I'm not that bothered, I've had my special time. New Year will be a quiet night in with who ever is here.
Best wishes to you all for 2009.
1) Celebrations with my loved ones.
2) People who know me well.
3) A happy and peaceful Yuletide.
4) A bad year is over
5) The count down to NZ begins!
