Christmas Eve 2011

Christmas Eve is my favourite day over the Christmas hols. The family have just arrived home. The fridge is packed with all the festive fare. There are mince pies to make, the Christmas cake to decorate and vegetables to dig up from the garden – parsnips, celeriac and brussel sprouts this year. The goose is defrosting on the side; salmon poaching on the stove for the fish terrine tomorrow; and Michael Buble is singing ‘All I want for Christmas is you’. Then out in to the storm for the Christmas dash around the neighbours with cards and gifts. I think I’ve made it, everything done, just in time, but oh dear the fairy lights have gone out and the milk bought the day before is off. Looks like it’s going to be Bailey’s in the coffee this Christmas!
