Merry Christmas to One and All

It is that time of year again the christmas shopping is almost done, the last week before christmas is all about the high street, many of us on-line retailers are finished for christmas as soon as the first class post deadline is passed.... we can relax put our feet up and in many cases get on with our own christmas shopping!

The last week before christmas we worry about the food and that one person for whom we have forgotten to buy the gift, I always have a spare or two under the tree, usually bits and pieces that either my or my husband would be happy to have if they don't get given away.

But for now I am turning my attention to the food, the turkey is ordered and I have lists and lists of food that is needed and preparations that need to be made, the worry about the sprouts!  However in the world am I going to cook them this year, my dear sister in law managed to cook some fabulous tasting sprouts last year, cooked with bacon and butter, perhaps I should ask her for the recipe!  In many we are lucky with an Aga to slow cook the meat and keep everything warm until it is time to eat.  I'm always a little disappointed at the lack of turkey hanging around after christmas day, we do have some but not the mounds and mounds of it that seem to plague other families, the thing that we get hanging around is the christmas cake!  Any unsuspecting guests that come wandering in, will get a piece of christmas cake handed to them as we desperately try to get rid of that rich fruitcake that only one person in our family actually likes!

The christmas presents still need wrapping, we seem to be developing a strong christmas tradition of doing this on christmas eve, actually I quite like it with a glass or two of my christmas tipple of choice; Irish whiskey cream and of course a few of those christmas chocolates, dear old gran always buys us a delicious box of chocs at christmas!

Our last day ordering day for christmas delivery is Friday the 19th December this year. 

We will of course continue to send orders out over the christmas period and in that respect the internet never closes!

Have a really lovely christmas everybody and we will see you again in the New Year.
