Well hello if you have stopped by, sorry that there has not been much going on here lately but been very very busy helping daughter with the twins. They are growing very well...so this Nanny and Pops are sure looking forward to lots of cuddles this Christmas.
Well its now 3.30pm on Christmas Eve and have just picked DH up from work as he finished early. I spent the morning sorting out the veg for tomorrow and roasted my potatoes aka...Jamie Oliver...with rosemary and garlic cloves, they have kturned out very well. Also made the Cranberry Sauce with 400gms cranberries 200gms caster sugar...juice of nearly two oranges, used juice of two before and was a tad tart....added a splash of port cooked 8-10 mins and scrummy.....done ready for that ol' turkey bird...also frozen some to go with ice cream. Whilst doing cooking this morning had the TV on and watched "Jack Frost"......love that film so magical at the end, brought a right lump to my throat and tear to my eye.
Had a wonderful Saturday evening...the Choral Society that I sing with had our Christmas evening and we sang.......Balulalow...A Spotless Rose.......Lully Lula..Sans Day Carol....Sir Christemas and Benedicamus Domino......whooah!!!
I tell you there was plenty of harmony singing for me to get into as I sing 1st alto, sometimes wish I sang soprano and then could just sing the tune. Anyway it was a happy evening and we had audience participation with a medly of popular Christmas songs, Winter Wonderland, Sleigh Ride etc.....really put me in the spirit. So dear readers thank you for coming and looking reading, commenting etc and I will say...will leave you with a piccy of my Christmas table that I have just laid up.
THAT I WISH YOU A WONDROUS MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEAR YEAR.........hugs xxxxxxxxxx
