I need to catch up with the soup; the starter; the bread rolls; the stuffing; the bacony sausage things

I worry about having under-catered for vegetarians

I sound very croaky and my throat is still sore

We have not been very generous with the giftage this Christmas

The garden is still unfinished and looks like a lunar landscape


On the other hand:



I’m ahead with the beef; the cabbage; the mince pies; the cake; the sausage rolls; the able sauce

The Boywonder is back in one piece

I have few presents left to wrap and it looks like I won’t be up until 1am as usual on Christmas eve.

The new kitchen is complete and working well

Someone else is bringing the wine


Best look on the bright side. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas.
