Good Morning Ladies,
It was so lovely to read how some of you spent your Christmas day, I was glad to get into bed on Christmas day night I can tell you.
Yesterday was much quieter and very relaxed, Paul and I spent much of the day lounging on the sofa on our own as most of the family were back to work, Sophie and Lucy earned £16.30 an hour so didn't want to turn down the opportunity, Becca and Adam had the Pub/Hotel/Restaurant to run so it was an early start for them. Matt's girlfriend Alex had a very rare day off, she is a Manager at B&M store and they have been extremely busy on the run up to Christmas, she worked up until 7pm on Christmas Eve and is back in today, so they went for a long walk with Harley and then decided to brave the sales, I had to chuckle to myself though, Matt popped home after a couple of hours with his 'Bargain of the day' Asda had reduced their fresh Turkeys, so he bought a 6.2lb Turkey for £6, we haven't touched half of the Turkey that I cooked on Christmas Day yet! He is so much like Paul in that resect, just can't pass a bargain, needless to say it will go into the Freezer for now, they were also giving away Carrots and Parsnips so he filled a trolley with Carrots for a treat for his sheep and bought a couple of packs of each home with the Turkey too. So he was buzzing with his bargains. I couldn't have forced myself to leave the house I'm afraid, I am quite sick of shopping.
We will have to pop out this morning for Milk, bread etc as Paul's Parents are arriving for a couple of days, we have plenty of food, just need the essentials really. We are going out both nights that they are staying with us, first we are going to the Gold Pheasant (Becca's place) tonight, Adam is going to cook us up a treat, tomorrow we are going to the local Red Lion (at last), this is a treat for Paul's Dad's birthday. So no cooking for me, YAY!!
Today I am sharing the lovely Christmas card that Maria made for me, it's such a beautiful scene that Maria has painted beautifully, I absolutely love it Maria and will treasure it, thank you so much my lovely xxx
I hope that you all continue to have a relaxed few days,
Love and hugs to all of you,
