Merry Christmas!

I think it just might be! My lovely 'little brother' (not really but might as well be) has arrived with his partner and baby boy to spend Christmas with us! Lovely daughter and I are going to take mum's Christmas present round to her tomorrow (and visit again on Christmas Day) and together we're going to tackle cooking the Christmas Day dinner for the first time in years! (Just bought the turkey, sprouts, parsnips, potatoes, turnip (already had the carrots), cabbage, OH NO - I'VE JUST REMEMBERED I FORGOT THE YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS!!!, cranberry sauce, apple sauce (already have a joint of pork) and gravy today. Wonder what else I've forgotten? Must check the pantry for Christmas pudding, sure I saw some brandy butter in the fridge....

....Mr Lily has been tasked to purchase puddings on Christmas Eve - Yorkshire and Christmas, hopefully he'll surface before the shops have been emptied. I'm off to work now then to mum's to wrap all the Christmas presents before lovely daughter and I visit mum. I'm so excited!

Sounds like you're going to have a wonderful time. I won't be cooking at all...everyone but my youngest son is away and he flies out Christmas night for San Diego. Our favorite Japanese restaurant is open so we've promised them we'll go by for an early dinner before his 8PM flight.

I wish you and yours a joyous Christmas.

Oh, have a joyous Christmas! We won't be here; we're having a family catastrophe, but hey. The little ones will have a good time!
