Not long to go now just another week and we will be there at last I am almost ready so it should be an easy day. Chestnut stuffing, gravy and bread sauce all made and in the freezer and all I have left to do is make some cranberry sauce. The christmas card have been done but I have only put them through neighbours doors the rest have been done via the internet and the money has gone to Macmillan.
Yesterdays visit to Mike was a bit of a disaster I had just had a couple of fresh crabs delivered so I hastily cracked a couple of claws and made Mike a lovely crab sandwich [not impressed] I then tried to explain that they were going to move him from high dependancy to a less intensive ward while he waited for a bed in rehab to become available. He took this all wrong and got really cross with me so I came home well and truly deflated. I am getting fed up with being the wicked witch of the west no matter what I do.
This morning I have the peaceful task of picking over the two crabs for our lunch. It might be a messy job but I put on some music and sit and pick. While I was away at Shiona's the boys had done all the laundry so that is one less job for me.
The weather has been unseasonably warm and while it is nice I hope it doesn't last over the Christmas period as I like to use my garage as an overflow fridge.
Well thats about it for this morning the dogs are out of food so a shopping expedition is in order and I could use some salad ingredients to go with the crab for lunch.
How go your preparations?
