We had a lovely family Christmas. Himself  brought me breakfast in bed , then after a leisurely time getting up and dressed we exchanged our presents (just little ones because we had given each other our big presents earlier in the year). We were invited to have dinner with Jennie  and co. It is so nice to drive over in 10 minutes instead of the 2-3 hours drive we used to have. We were met at the door by Cheeky in his new Indiana Jones outfit!

Jennie had pulled out all the stops and served an excellent traditional meal of turkey and all the trimmings. (Whoever would have thought that the teenager who was going to be the first female attorney general  would have turned into a domestic goddess?:) She had even made the crackers each with a personal small gift.

We completed the day watching Doctor Who and Strictly Christmas Special (well I have to keep up with my grandsons and we did miss seeing David Tennant in Hamlet!!)

Boxing Day we went to GG’s family for tea. Aren’t we lucky to get on well with the in-laws. We resisted the urge to join the crowds at the Sales today, so a very peaceful Christmas was had by all!
