AND SO IT WAS CHRISTMAS.....

.....and as with every year nowadays, it seemed to be over in the blink of an eye!

Santa had obviously heard that my camera had gone AWOL and brought me a new one....here a selection of photographs I took  throughout the day.

He's been!

Out for lunch

Kirsty came home from lunch and cooked a turkey crown, so that there were 'leftovers' for turkey sandwiches at night!!

It was very quiet with just the three of us, but we enjoyed just doing our own thing without worrying about suiting anyone else!

I do hope your own Christmas day was just as enjoyable

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx

  4. Love that Kirsty had to cook a 'crown' for leftovers - we did that a couple of years ago when we had Christmas dinner at my Mum's. You do need that cold turkey for a turkey and mayo sandwich!Glad you had a happy Christmas together x

  5. We cooked a 'crown' we didn't really need as well....and froze a lot of it for turkey roasts through the year!!

  11. Sounds lovely. I like the number of crowns I see on people internationally - it's a shame we don't do that here.

  12. Lovely photos - how exciting that you received a new camera! Believe it or not, we had a white Christmas here in Texas & (as always) Robbie spoiled me with lots of gifts.
