Despite the "Twelve Days of Christmas", it still seems a little anti-climactic now that The Day has been and gone.
The children loved all of their presents, and Helen solemnly informed me that this was the best Christmas ever :-)
We have taken camcorder footage of the mayhem - um - "present-opening" for DoomHamster`s delectation, and of Christmas lunch.
There were nine of us at lunch, and there was a lot of cooking - beef, turkey, roast pork, stuffing, roast potatoes, new potatoes, brussel sprouts, roast parsnips, peas, carrots, bread sauce, gravy, bacon and sausage rolls etc.
It was wonderful to sit at the table and see everyone enjoying the food I had made, with the glow from the lit lampada shining over us all.
What a blessing.
