Christmas Eve

So here we are....Christmas Eve.......I have just pushed the dyson over the rug in the sitting room and blown the dust to rearrange it. No more cleaning till next Monday I am on official holiday after I have cooked tomorrows lunch.

Turkey is thawing in the fridge, base of the trifle in the fridge, will put the custard on later and the cream on tomorrow. I have an appointment at the hospital to get my hearing aid checked at lunch time, will make up some sandwiches with the left over corned beef from last nights stovies before we go. I bought some smoked salmon so we will have rocket salad and  smoked salmon for supper tonight with some lemon cous cous. No idea about a dessert, might just have a mince pie.

DB went and collected his medication from the chemist. He said the road was quiet. Bet the supermarkets are not though. 

The wind and rain from yesterday has gone, it was very dark first thing, but the sun is in and out. I feel so sorry for those who were travelling to be with their family over the holidays and have had their journey's disrupted or cancelled by the bad weather. They must be so disappointed.

I had a message from DS2 they eventually got to see Santa yesterday afternoon, so the little ones were happy.

Offsky to do the sarnies for when we get back from the hospital, later I will do all the veg for tomorrow and put them in airtight bags in the fridge, a bit less to do tomorrow.

    Enjoy your break from housework. You deserve a lovely holiday!
