Christmas Day in the Mad House

A Christmas days go yesterday’s was just about perfect.

The day got off to a cracking start at bezzie mates. Copious amounts of champagne and croissants set us up nicely for the day ahead.  Next we went to Len’s Mum and Dad’s for Bucks Fizz. When we arrived we realised that his Mum had put on a full buffet for us!!  Oh Lordy!

After having already consumed my own weight in croissants I didn’t really feel the need for more food but of course not wanting to offend I got stuck in and gave it my  shot. I noticed that my  food   achilles heel was there – honey coated cashew nuts. I could eat them till hell freezes over. Nom nom nom choff slurp.

A quick detour in Bigtown to scoop up little bro and we were all assembled at home for the pressie fest.  Lashes had made some canapes so we tucked into those as well. At this point I was starting to feel like I was starring in the Christmas episode of the Vicar of Dibley when Geraldine has three Christmas dinners.

The table I’d got ready the night before, here it is before it got demolished:

The television behind  The Rev caused me much hilarity as I downloaded the photos:

I don’t know what Gembolina just said but it must have been bad if it got a reaction from The Rev AND the man in the box:


And then provike a reaction like this one. Look behind you, Son!

Look behind you!

Len was really shocked.

Is it always like this?

Everyone else though had a lovely time, oblivious to the drama going on in the corner.


Merry Christmas!

Just sitting quietly having my customary cup of hot water and enjoying the peace and quiet before the day begins.

Plan for today: Run round like a silly bugger cooking, tidying, washing up  etc etc.  You get the idea.

Fist stop today will be bezzie mate’s for Buck’s Fizz and croissants. Can’t wait for that. It isn’t Christmas till we’ve been to bezzie mate’s.  Then we are going to see Len’s parents for more Buck’s Fizz. Can’t wait for that either, I love Len’s parents. You would too if you met them.

After that it’s into Bigtown with Lashes and Len  to scoop up my little bro then Boofuls will pop down to get The Rev and family and from then on it’ll be all systems go!!!

I’ll be back with all the gossip and the photos later in the week.

Whatever you’re doing this Christmas I hope it’s perfect for you.  Merry Christmas!!!!
