It's Christmas Eve and my favourite time of the year. As I write this I am looking out the window to see snow on the ground, Christmas songs are playing in the background, the ham is cooking, stock is simmering ready for tomorrows gravy and the Cranberry, Orange and Port Sauce is done.
Preparations have been in full swing for several weeks. Mince pies, cheese straws, sausage rolls, stuffing, and pigs in blankets are all done and have been in the freezer ready to make their big appearances over this festive season. Presents are wrapped, cards written and all the decoration are up. I have just opened 'No 24' on the advent calender, and the time is now here.
I would like to now wish everyone that has taken the time and the trouble to read any of my posts, all those wonderful people that have placed great comments, a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Christmas is all about spending time with you families and loved ones, seeing joy in peoples faces as they receive the presents you give, the excitement and anticipation of children for what Christmas Morning will bring them. I hope all of you and your families have a fantastic festive season.
