Christmas Eve

12.01.04 013It’s evening time now.  The presents are all wrapped and children’s stockings filled.  The dining room has been cleared of all my craft stuff and the table laid for tomorrow’s breakfast.  The vegetables have been bought and the stuffing made for the turkey tomorrow.  At last!  Time to take a moment and relax.

The tv is on showing an old Victoria Wood Christmas show.  I love her ‘Lark Pies to Cranchesterford’.  I am waiting for ‘Last Tango in Halifax’ at 9pm.  It’s the last in the series and we’ve loved it!  I am sitting by the Christmas tree with it’s twinkly lights and there’s a huge pile of presents this year!  The kids have bought us several presents and we’ve already had a little prod and poke trying to guess what they are!

I am sipping a glass of white wine.  It’s a new one to us, one of our special Christmas wines.  It’s a French Touraine, from the Loire valley.  It’s sweeter than we normally drink, but we love the citrusy aftertaste.  Perhaps we’ll go there on a wine tasting tour one day!  Maybe we’ll eat a mince pie or two later.

It’s a lovely calm feeling, and now I am ready for the big day itself!

Merry Christmas to all my blog friends.  Hope it’s a good one!

Merry Christmas to you! I need to go set the table for tomorrow's dinner, but otherwise I'm ready for the festivities as well.

Hope you had a lovely day...I'm just thinking about a Boxing Day glass myself!
