It’s true, I couldn’t really get into the excitement and anticipation of Christmas this year and now it’s all done and dusted.
In actual fact, we had a very pleasant time. CC invited a friend to stay but we were still able to enjoy a laid-back, relaxed family time.
Jay and CC did the cooking and planned a rather unconventional meal of:
turkey and/or nut roast with carrots, roast potatoes and parsnips,
We ate quite late and I needed several doses of Gaviscon afterwards but it was well worth it.
We all had a nice pile of pressies to unwrap and my favourite was a poster of Steinlen cats which CC and Jay had found in Paris and carefully framed themselves.
It looks great above the piano where there was a large space just asking for something interesting to look at.
Bear behaved pretty well throughout the day and even deigned to eat the meal Jay had prepared. He even said he enjoyed it!!
However, the effort of being so good was bound to lead to an explosion sooner or later. . . . .
