Christmas Moments 2011

December 26, 2011

Well, it's done, Santa arrived and a great time was had by all, it was worth all the effort in the end just as it always is! The festivities started on Christmas eve at Sara and Craig's flat where both families got together for a pre-christmas celebration, I'm thinking that this is going to become a tradition, I certainly hope so as it was great fun and this year the two Grannys and Grandpa got to meet for the first time and got along fabulously, discussing sheltered housing and the merits of different types of hearing aids... We had a civilised late start to Christmas morning unlike Christmas eve where I had a 6.30 am visit to Tesco to pick up the last few bits of food shopping then (more domestic goddess) made cranberry and white chocolate cookies; recipe courtesy of Cherry Menlove. They really are delicious, go on give them a try, the sugar load will rot your teeth and you will instantly put on two pounds but isn't that what Christmas is all about  – Oh no, I forgot! it's the baby Jesus's birthday isn't it, nothing to do with mass consumerism and stuffing your face with calorie laden food...
Victoria had an excruciating wait on Christmas day until Sara and Craig arrived at 2 pm before we could open any presents and she was just about to crack and open one when they arrived. Granny surprised everyone with the cutest Charlie bears plus a startling amount of gorgeous jewellery and remote control helicopters for Mr K; two helicopters not one - what is this woman like? - can't wait till the stormy weather stops and we can go outside and try them out. Victoria surprised Rob with an ipad which floored him and he surprised her with a coffee machine which bless him, he carried all the way from london. Mr K suggested that he could have just shown her a picture, and left it back in London but that just wouldn't have been the same would it? it's certainly going to be fun trying to get on the train back to London with the extra amount of luggage that they have accumulated over the past few days!  After dinner we played Articulate, which was hilarious, Mr K doing the describing to me " swims in the sea" fish "Correct" "on a cliff" ???? Would you have got the answer which was Perch... Happy days! Happy Christmas!
