Good Friday Morning Ladies,
I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas Eve, if you are like us today is a busy day, its 'fun busy' though, we spend the day cooking and preparing food for Christmas day just so that it is more relaxed, mind you our kitchen tends to be the social hub of the house, it's rare to be in the kitchen on your own, there is always someone huddled around the Aga. Christmas Eve baking has always been a bit of a tradition, my Mum did exactly the same, baking mince pies, sausage rolls, making trifles and peeling and preparing vegetables for Christmas day, I always wonder if my children will do the same.
Sophie & Lucy have their own tradition on Christmas eve, they call it 'Twismas' (twin Christmas). They have their own Christmas day, the open each others gifts, go out for lunch, they spend the whole day with each other, which is lovely 😍.
If you are travelling to be with family I hope your journey is smooth and safe. I know for most of us the joy of spending it with family is hands down the best part of Christmas.
I bet that you are all super organised and have done all of your wrapping by now, we have done a few bits but still have the majority to do. I chose to use Brown Paper and ribbon this year to be a bit more Eco friendly, it isn't as easy on your hands as normal wrapping paper, Paul prefers it as he says it creases better and stays put while you tape it. I wonder what their reaction will be.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas eve
Love and hugs to all of you,
