Well peeps, there are now only six more sleeps until Christmas Day. December just seems to be flying by. I was so ahead of myself, when I suddenly realized that the big day was only next week, and I hadn't yet bought the turkey.
I think everything is done now, apart from the last minute shopping of fresh vegetables, cream etc. As I write this, Eleanor will be putting her last minute bits and pieces together, as she flies off to Peru early tomorrow morning (Friday). It's a twelve hour flight, so I expect her and her friend will sleep a lot of the way! I sent her a text just now, telling her to have a great time, but to take care of herself.
We will be having daughter number 2 and her husband with us on Christmas Day, along with Eli and Ruby, so I'm looking forward to that. I think that Emma and Mark are coming for the new year although, to be honest, Emma can do without another long car journey right now.
I don't think I will be posting again now before Christmas, so I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you all for your friendship for another year and for your wonderful comments.
I would like to wish each and everyone of you a very happy and joyful Christmas.
