Christmas No 1!!!

Yesterday we had my brother in law and family over for dinner and as they are going away for Christmas and probably won't be having Christmas dinner I decided to  cook one for them. We had a turkey crown from Iceland and I have to say it was the nicest turkey I have ever eaten. There is loads left for sandwiches which is a good job as one of my most favourite sandwiches is turkey and iceberg lettuce with Marie Rose sauce. I used to have that every day for my lunch when I worked in a carvery........many years ago and have always loved it.......I have also got hubby and DD loving it too.
Today I am moving back all of the stuff I had to take out of the dining room so that I could fit seven people around the table. It will all have to be repeated on Christmas Eve as we will be having my son and his family round for our traditional meal of home baked ham with salad and chips. We have done this for years and we love it.
Our little estate out in the sticks is starting to look very festive. I think we could rival the town with all the Christmas lights that go on in the evening. It's very pretty. All we need now is some snow and it would look beautiful.
Well I'll go and get on with my shifting. Luckily the trollies I use for my sewing stuff are on wheels so it's not too much of a hardship.
Thanks for visiting today.


  1. Hello, thank you for leaving a comment on my blog so I could find yours, and you've been going for years and I've never found you before - weird.
    We are having two of the children and partners back on Christmas day because they have nowhere else to go - poor things!I'm glad you had a nice day too, the weather was awful so it was good to stay in with family

  2. Hi Sue......Thanks for dropping by.
    I think you may not have seen my blog before as it used to be totally different to what it is now. I used to be a papercraft demonstrator and tutor when I first started to blog. Eventually I gave it up to child mind my baby grandaughter until she went to school. Now I am just a stay at home wife (as I have been unable to find a job) and my interests have changed somewhat.
    I have been reading your blog for ages and I love it though I am usually a bit shy about leaving comments. Couldn't let your wonderful news go by though without congratulating you.

  3. I love a turkey, ice berg lettuce and applesauce and stuffing sandwich!

  4. Oooooh that sounds nice Rachel.
    I could live on sandwiches with nice tasty things in them.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
