8 days to Christmas

With all the upheaval in our house this year with moving back to New Zealand and weddings, Christmas shopping has taken a back seat.

But I have finally realised today that there is only 8 days to the big day and we have the family (10 in all) here for lunch on the great day.

So out has come the proverbial list and I have written down every thing I can think of to be done.

Presents: well every now and then may be every 3rd or 4th year I opt out and everyone gets a voucher of their choice, yes! you have guessed it, this year is an opt out year so my shopping will be stress free. I can recommend it.

Cooking: I have decided against the traditional Turkey etc. and we will have Beef Wellington, with a little Chicken for the children who are all quite young and would prefer this.

So time to get into gear.

Sounds all good to me, and seeing as I am one of the lucky 10 to be there on the day, then sounds even better!

Laurie, your house looks lovely! I'm Carolyn and was your Stitcher's Angel. Did you receive your package from me? I mailed it back in October and haven't heard if it arrived..I've been worried! I don't want you to think I forgot you!

Wow, it appears Beef Wellington is the order of the Day. One of my colleagues was ordering the steak for it last week. My family, we gave up on turkey year ago when we finally admitted we couldn't tell the difference from Chicken.
