Merry Christmas Everyone

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I was hoping to get another post in before Christmas, but with all that's been going on and mother not being well just put me way behind. I want to thank everyone that sent their best of wishes to me. She is a little better and I plan to make her Christmas the best possible.

The children and grandchildren will be over to mother's Christmas day and I will be up to my eye's in pigs in blankets, turkey and all the usual fare.
Every year I think to myself "why do I do it?" Cooking for 17 ! although two of those are still babes.
I often dream on Christmas day about having a glamorous time with my feet up somewhere posh, dressed up and being waited on. But then again I know it would not feel right. This is one of the only times we are all together in the year.

One of my grandson's made me laugh the other day (he's 4) telling me how he needed to pop out to the shops to buy me a present. Here is how the conversation flowed

Grandson - " Nanny I need to get out to the shops to buy your present"
Me - " Oh lovely! Give me a clue? Will it be something nice?
Grandson - "Yes Nanny it's something to wear"
Me - (getting excited wondering what the daughter is buying) Oh lovely, "What colour will it be?"
Grandson - "All different colours Nanny" "I'm going to get you a Robin outfit, so I can be Batman and you can be Robin" "We can get the baddie's together!"

So cute! I can't wait to see their faces all lit up. And I really hope I don't have to dress up as Robin!

Everything is done now all but packing the car for the journey to Essex.  I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas.
I want to thank you all so much for the support you have all given throughout the year. The blog continues to grow strong and I can't thank my readers enough. I've had a fabulous year, making new Cyber friends and have met some lovely people through blogging this year. 

I'd love to hear about your plans for Christmas. Is anyone lucky enough to be waited on or on a sunny beach somewhere? Whatever it is I hope it's wonderful for you.
See you next week, hopefully with a glam new years eve post. And I'm sure there will be some sale bargains to talk about!
